apricot chicken by adelle

so easy and so scrumptious!

chicken breasts (however many you want; if you do more than 8, you will need to double the dressing mixture)
1 envelope of onion soup mix
1 (10 ounce) jar apricot preserves
1 (8 ounce) Russian salad dressing (this can be tricky to find, i have only found it in the 8 oz. bottle, it tends to hide on the shelf; you can substitute with catalina dressing if you can't find it)

combine salad dressing, soup mix, and preserves in a bowl and mix well. arrange the chicken in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. spoon the dressing mixture over the chicken. bake, covered with foil at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

great with a salad and rice cooked with chicken broth instead of water.

I can't wait to try it! Are preserves hard to get/find? I've never dealt with them before...scary...

preserves aren't hard to find you just have to be careful when you are reading the labels--they all look the same!!
