Easy Chicken Recipes: This French Chicken Recipe Isn't Fancy, But It's Délicieuse by Donna John
Bottled French salad dressing, dry onion soup mix and apricot preserves? If this recipe sounds a little strange to you, know you are not alone. My immediate thought after pouring the sauce over the chicken was if I would pick up dinner at the local diner or just order a pizza. But hold on!
The chicken was délicieuse (delicious)! My favorite part were the little bits of apricot from the preserves and the once-dried bits in the onion soup mix that added texture and flavor. Give this easy four-ingredient chicken recipe a try!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes to 1 hour
Total Time: 50 minutes to 1 hour and 5 minutes
- 4 - 8 bone-in chicken pieces or boneless chicken thighs (I used bone-in thighs)
- 1 bottle (8 ounces) French salad dressing (I used Wish-Bone Deluxe French Dressing)
- 1 package dry onion soup mix (I used Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup Mix)
- 1 small jar apricot preserves (I used Smucker's Simply Fruit Apricot Preserves)
Here's how to make it:
Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper and put it into a baking dish.
Combine the salad dressing, soup mix and preserves in a bowl. Mix well.
Pour the mixture over the chicken, making sure to cover the chicken completely.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of your chicken pieces. Baste occasionally with the sauce.
