Apricot Chicken

from Better Homes & Gardens

**This is one of those recipes that I make when I don't want to go shopping, I usually have the ingredients on hand.

6 chicken breasts
21 oz. canned apricot pie filling (I usually just use apricot jam)
1 T. lemon juice
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. ground nutmeg (fresh ground is heavenly)
1/2 c. pecan halves
hot cooked rice

Arrange chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

Combine apricot jam, lemon juice, 1/2 t. salt, and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in pecans. Pour apricot mixture over chicken pieces. Cover and bake in a 375 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until chicken is tender.

Arrange chicken on rice; spoon apricot mixture atop. Serves 6.
