Apricot Chicken


This recipe is amazingly easy and kid friendly. It's also a great freezer meal!  I like to bake it in a 9x13in. dish but you can also cook it in a crockpot or instant pot if you don't mind it being more like shredded chicken. 

A quick side note: One of the ingredients is Russian dressing. It's important to note that there are two different kinds of russian is a lot like french/catalina and the other is creamy like thousand island.  In this recipe you'll want to use the one that looks like french/catalina.  Wishbone has a good one but I can't always find it so I use french or catalina as a substitute.  

If you're looking for a fast new chicken recipe that your kids will all eat give this a try!

Apricot Chicken


5-6 chicken breasts (cut into strips)

1 cup apricot jam

8 oz. russian, french, or catalina dressing (make sure you read my side note above about the russian dressing)

Jasmine rice for serving


Cut chicken breasts into strips and place in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. In a small bowl mix jam, salad dressing and onion soup together.  Pour over chicken (moving chicken around slightly to make sure it is fully coated in the dressing mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Serve over rice!
