Whenever I am looking to make something new for dinner, I always turn to the fabulous archives here on Better Recipes.  When I came across this recipe I simply had to try it!  I must admit, I have a weakness for honey mustard, so it caught my eye.  Along with an herb rub and a touch of sweetness from apricot preserves, this is an effortless dinner that looks gorgeous and tastes phenomenal.

I decided to serve the Apricot-Rosemary Chicken over a bed of orzo.  It is a great alternative to potatoes or rice when you want to change things up at dinner time.  Roasted asparagus on the side makes it a complete meal.  This dish also reheats well and leftover chicken is great the next day sliced over salad greens for a quick lunch or supper.
