Nothing to do with Insurance!

Apricot Chicken, Fast and Tasty!

While we “do” insurance, we also eat.  Hence, finding fast and yummy recipes is also part of my mission!

This is one of those “throw it together in 3 minutes” bake for an hour or so and it’s DONE!

For one pound of chicken (skinless, boneless white meat) you will need 1/2 of a 10-oz. jar of apricot preserves (we like Polanar, very natural)…1/2 bottle of Russian Dressing (any brand is fine!) and 1/2 dry packet of onion soup mix (has to be Knorr’s…awesome!)….mix it all together.

Chop the semi-frozen chicken into chunky cubes (much easier to cut when it’s partially frozen) and stir into the sauce.  Pour that all into a shallow baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 1 to 1.25 hours.  When tender and white, it’s done! 

While it’s cooling a bit, cook your pasta.  We like the fresh angel hair (Weis Market brand is good!) variety.  Takes like 3 minutes to cook!  Serve the chicken atop the pasta…voila! 

Side dish of baked brussel sprouts makes it VERY tasty!
