Add a serving of mashed potatoes or a baked potato with a low-fiber vegetable to complete this lunch or dinner entree.
½ cup fruit-only apricot preserves
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
¼ teaspoon sweet paprika
1 lb chicken tenders
1. In a medium skillet combine the apricot preserves, vinegar, and sweet paprika. Place over low heat and mix often for 4 minutes. Rinse the chicken tenders and place in a large bowl. Pour the apricot mixture over the chicken, and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
2. Turn on the oven and set to broil. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack in the center of the sheet and arrange the marinated chicken in a single layer. Place in the oven on the top rack. After 5 minutes, use tongs to turn the chicken. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes. Allow the chicken to blacken slightly. (Chicken should be well cooked).
