Directions

  1. Whisk apricot preserves, Russian-style salad dressing, and dry onion soup mix together in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add chicken breasts, coat with the marinade, squeeze to remove excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Dump chicken and marinade into a 12x9-inch baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven, basting regularly, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 45 minutes to 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

The Russian salad dressing in this recipe really gave the chicken a brilliant shade of orange. Plus I used peach preserves in place of apricot and that must have added to the orangy color. It had the appearance of being very spicy but really this has a very sweet flavor. Nothing spicy or sour at all. I cut the chicken into bite size pieced before baking it and reduced the cooking time. I added a little corn starch to the sauce when it came out of the oven to thicken it up and served over rice.
