I have fixed this tender glazed chicken for myself on many special occasions. With the pretty golden-orange sauce, it looks as good as it tastes.—Winifred Brown, Jamesburg, New Jersey

Delicious!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 3, 2011

It was very easy to make and it came out very tender and juicy. I amde it with the russian dressing. I think next time I will try it with the onion soup mix as I think it needed more zip.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2010

I have made similar in a crockpot recipe, but it has NEVER come out as tender, juicy, and glazed as this recipe did. I will certainly make it again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 26, 2009

This is a super simple recipe that results in a very good tasting piece of chicken. I used the Russian dressing and left out the salt and pepper. I will definitely be making this again and again.
