Recipe Friday: Apricot Chicken

I got this EASY recipe from my wife when we first started dating. Now, I'll warn you -- the ingredients don't actually sound like they go together... but the flavors mix together wonderfully, and in the end you have tasty and tender chicken, surrounded by a great and thick sauce that can be poured over the chicken, and I like it over the rice I typically serve with this entree too.

4 skinless chicken breasts
1 small jar of apricot jelly
1 packet of dry onion soup mix
1 small jar thousand island dressing

1) place jelly, soup mix, and dressing into pan and mix together
2) place chicken in pan and cover with mixture
3) bake in oven at 350 degrees for one hour
4) enjoy!

See? I told you that was easy! :)

  1. This is good! You can alter this recipe into a marinade by using Italian dressing instead of Thousand Island. Let chicken marinate overnight and then grill.
