Baked Apricot Chicken

Recipe adapted from:

  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 cup Russian dressing
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 can drained pineapple chunks

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In a medium bowl combine the jam, dressing and soup mix. Mix together.
3.Place chicken pieces in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour apricot mixture over chicken and bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, pour pineapples over chicken mixture then brush the apricot mixture over the chicken again and cook for 20-25 minutes more.

Notes & Tips:
The original recipe calls for French dressing. Since I'm not a huge fan of French I substituted Russian Dressing. I served this atop rice with a salad. I was very impressed with the marinade/mixture. I thought this was very sweet and tasty!
