Cajun Chicken Bites

Spice Mix:
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoons thyme
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Salt to taste

Apricot Mustard:
1 1/2 cups apricot preserves
6 tablespoons Creole style mustard
5 boned skinned chicken breast halves
cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

To make spice mixture, combine all ingredients in a zip lock bag and shake.

To make the sauce, heat the preserves and mustard over low heat until melted and blended. Cool.

Sprinkle the chicken with the spice mix and let stand 30 minutes or up to several hours. Heat the margarine and oil over medium heat. Sauté chicken until done, about 5 minutes, drain on paper towels and serve with the sauce in a small bowl on the tray that you pass.
