Apricot Chicken

Slice chicken breasts crosswise about 1/2 inch thick. Heat the oil and butter in a non-stick pan and fry the chicken breast in batches as to not crowd the pan.

You just need to sear the outside of the chicken, about 2 minutes on each side.

Place mixture into a large plastic bag that zips shut. Take out as much air as possible. Marinate the mixture in refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours up to 24 hours. I marinate my mixture in the freezer and that way it is ready when I am.
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake mixture covered in oven for 15 minutes. Uncover and cook for another 15 minutes. Stir and bake another 15 minutes. Spoon mixture over rice on each plate.
