This French Chicken Recipe Isn't Fancy, But It'll Make Your Family Say "Merci Beaucoup"

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! 

You'll need:

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 an hour, depending on the size of your chicken pieces. Baste occasionally with the sauce.
