1/4
cup  chopped PLANTERS Pecans
1/4
cup  chopped celery
42
 saltine crackers, coarsely crushed
1
small  Granny Smith apple, peeled, chopped
1/4
cup  finely chopped dried apricots
1
Tbsp.  chopped green onions

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

MELT butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add nuts and celery; cook 2 to 3 min. or until celery is crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in cracker crumbs, apples, apricots, onions, pepper and thyme.

PLACE chicken, smooth sides down, on work surface; top each with 1/3 cup nut mixture. Roll up, starting at one short end of each; secure with wooden toothpicks. Spread any remaining nut mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray; top with chicken. Cover.

BAKE 30 min. (Chicken will not be done.) Meanwhile, mix preserves, orange juice and vinegar until blended. Reserve 1/2 cup preserves mixture; spoon remaining over chicken. Bake 15 min. or until chicken is done.

HEAT broiler. Broil chicken, 6 inches from heat, 3 to 5 min. or until golden brown. Discard toothpicks from chicken. Serve chicken topped with reserved preserves mixture.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad and your favorite fresh fruit to round out the meal.
How to Cut Dried Fruit
When chopping dried fruit, such as apricots, dates or prunes, keep it from sticking to the knife by lightly spraying the knife blade with cooking spray before using it to chop the fruit.
