This recipe comes from my mom and is another easy weeknight meal. It’s chicken with a delicious sauce consisting of onion soup mix, thousand island dressing and apricot preserves. Sounds like a crazy combination, but don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. You will love it! My mom used to make it with bone-in pieces of chicken, thighs and breasts mostly, which requires about an hour of cooking time. I make the same sauce, only I pour it over chicken breasts and it bakes in 20 minutes. So take your pick, but be sure to make extra, this meal makes great leftovers as well.
Total Time: 25 minutes
1 packet of onion soup mix (I use Lipton)
1 bottle of thousand island dressing
1 jar of apricot preserves/jam
3 boneless chicken breasts, cut lengthwise
Brown rice, cooked according to package
1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Mix first 3 ingredients together in a medium bowl. Place chicken in a baking dish, or rimmed pan lined with foil, and pour sauce over chicken.
3. Bake 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Let rest 5 minutes and serve over rice.
