New Year's Eve Chicken

Recipe by  

"This is my all time favorite chicken dish. My mom used to make it for her annual New Year's Eve party, so it was a treat! She wouldn't give me the recipe until I moved out of town! The flavor seems to intensify over time, so they make even yummier leftovers! I can almost guarantee you will be asked for the recipe!"

It's not that it isnt good- it just wasnt what I thought it would be. If I were to make this again I would change a few things. First off- I would not cover it while cooking. It seemed more boiled than it was baked. I like my wings a little more candied. Plus- I would add half the amount of italian dressing than called for. The ingredients are complimentary- but the italian dressing overpowers the apricot/onion taste that I believe would be tasty.

This recipe was just okay. My guests liked them butsaid they lacked that special kick taste. I won't make them again for my parties.

I made this for New Year's Eve, and although everyone tried it - the plate remained over half full. I won't make it again.
