On busy days, I need a no fuss supper like my apricot chicken. Often I make the sauce ahead of time and use precooked chicken.—Tanya McKay, Wells, Nevada


  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 1 cup Catalina salad dressing
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons onion soup mix


  1. In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter and oil over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Combine the jam, salad dressing and soup mix; pour over chicken.
  2. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until a thermometer reaches 170°.
