Hi 3suwm5!


I make a glaze out of Apricot Jam...


It is my own recipe...So, I don't have measurements...I would just pour.


It is a "Glaze" for "Cornish Game Hens"".


6oz of Apricot Jam,  1- Stick Melted Butter,

and 1/2 cup of "Amaretto Liqueur". Mix well and 

Simmer and make into a glaze.


I use to Baste the "Cornish Game Hens" while they are cooking.  It makes the "Game Hens" taste amazing!

Hi gmkb!


This is funny...My Mother who lives in PA, sent me this recipe in the 1980's and they called it...


"Pennsylvania Chicken"


1- Jar of Apricot Jam

1 - Bottle of Russian Salad Dressing 

1 - Package of Lipton Dry Onion Soup


Mix all together and pour over bone in chichen breast. Marinate for 1 hour and then place chicken and mixture into baking dish and bake at 350*.


It is funny, how a recipe's goes around and the name changes...It is a GOOD RECIPE.

Apricot jam is a good base for many glazes for pork, ham, chicken, and salmon. I use it often. In fact, I use jams more for glazes and such than I use it for spreading on toast and bread. A GF gave me a pint of her apricot-pineapple preserves one time and it made a great base for glazing a pork roast. Yum

In  the morning, on toast (from bread machine).  I spread a little coconut oil on the bread first and then the apricot jam.
