Apricot Chicken

Growing up, this is what I always requested for my birthday meal. It’s delicious. I especially love makingĀ it since Stephen and I are only two people which means we get to eat it two days in a row. I serve it with brown rice and rolls. You’ll want the rolls to sop up the apricot goodness.

4-5 chicken breasts
11 oz. jar of apricot preserves
11-14 oz. bottle of Italian dressing
1 envelope of onion soup mix

In a medium sauce pan combine preserves, dressing, and soup mix. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until preserves are melted. Put chicken breasts in a baking dish and pour mixture on top. Cover with foil. Cook in a 350 degree oven for an hour. Uncover and cook an additional 15 minutes. Wipe your drool off the floor.
