Easy GlazePosted by in Food
Often during the holidays, I need to pull dinner together, but I’m crunched for time, tired and also just overwhelmed by all the holiday food. I need something fast, tasty, healthy, and something that will not contribute to my food fatigue!
I often make this simple glaze for chicken, fish, or pork:
2 tbsp apricot jam
1 tbsp tamari sauce
1 minced garlic clove
1 tsp Worchestershire
Sometimes I marinate my protein in this, other times I brush it on near the end of the cooking process.
This turns into a nice pan gravy as well once you take your protein out. Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and use Wondra, cornstarch or gluten free flour to thicken it over medium heat.
You can use peach jam if you’d rather as well.

When do you put this on? Right before you cook it? Or do you need to marinate it first?
I think I said in the post – sometimes I marinate in it, sometimes I just brush it on at the end and let it brown for a couple of minutes.
Is tamari sauce the same as tamarind sauce?
Sounds delish, but I don’t have Tamarind sauce round as a staple. Any substitute?
That sounds delish!
Tamari, not tamarind. You can use soy sauce instead. Tamari is very similar.
No – it’s essentially a version of soy sauce. Use that if you prefer.
I never think of adding a glaze, but it’s so simple and adds so much. Thanks for the idea.
