I used to think chicken was boring. Dry, flavorless chicken or fried chicken used to be the norm. I have been experimenting with different flavors and cooking techniques, and I haven’t had boring chicken in a long time.
One of my favorite new chicken recipes is a version of Apricot Chicken. All you need besides the chicken, is some apricot preserves, either catalina or russian dressing, and onion soup mix. I serve this over rice. If you like a little heat, you can add a drop or two of hot sauce.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the chicken pieces in a 4 quart casserole dish. Mix the soup mix, dressing and jam together, and pour over the chicken.
