Apricot Chicken

March 3, 2012

Happy Saturday ya’ll!  I just love it when someone sends me a wonderful recipe.  Camille is my sweet Bible Study leader and, she sent this to me last week.  She is a great Southern cook….and, this recipe is no exception!  Need something for supper tonight or Sunday lunch?  You only need four items:  apricot preserves, Lipton onion soup mix (in packets) and chicken.   This is good enough to serve for a nice dinner party…I made it for dinner Thursday night and, I wanted to DRINK the sauce…excellent!  Serve over wild or white rice.

    Hey Beth–I have really enjoyed reading your blog! I tried this recipe earlier this week and it was EXCELLENT! I didn’t have any apricot preserves, so I decided to finish off what I had left in my fridge. Hoping it would be just as good, I used peach preserves, fig preserves, and roasted pineapple habanero dip (a jelly I used on top of cream cheese in December). I was hesitant that this might be a crazy combo, but again, it turned out to be extremely tasty, AND the bonus was that it helped clean out my fridge! HA! 🙂 Keep up the wonderful posts–you are so talented and creative!
