Apricot Chicken

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

    This was pretty good, and there's practically zero prep time, which is great if you're busy.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    this is really good with 1/4 pack of onion soup mix on top before you bake it as well!
