The "no-name" chicken breasts from our local market were still typical U.S.-oversized chicken breasts; I wish I had thought to slice each breast in half horizontally prior to cooking. It's hard in the U.S. to find a "normal" chicken breast. Although the breasts were well seared in the given cooking time (I guessed at medium-high heat, no heat level was specified), they were way under-cooked. I added about 4 minutes per side. During this time, I wished I had chosen to cook the breasts sous vide instead - that way I would be certain that the breasts had reached the proper temperature throughout, then I could have seared them just before serving (and I wouldn't have to clean the stove area from grease splatters). As for the apricot-ginger sauce, it should be halved even for 4 over-sized chicken breasts. The sauce was pleasant, but not addictive.
