wonderful tangy change for a chicken dish. though I made a few subtle changes. first I used chicken breast cut into large strips pre cooked them didnt have plum jam so used rasberry instead all other ingredients were the same but upon reading other reviews I added 1/2 a cup of water to the sauce mix put all into 9x13 dish sealed with foil then into the oven. after 45 mins then added 1 Tbsp of cornstarch mixed with a little water into the sauce. Family went crazy over this one including fussy daughter DH got pouty cause daughters BF cleaned up the leftovers. Thanks Liza this ones a keeper. Read More

This was inedible--it was super salty and just tasted strange with the onion mix. I even added some cream cheese to the sauce/juices to try and temper the salt and cut back the onion mix favor to salvage dinner. We love all the ingredients but the flavors didn't meld. Read More

This recipe is the bomb! So easy yet delish! Used boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of chicken pieces. Adjust cooking time accordingly (30 - 40 mins). Thanks Liza for a great recipe! Read More

First - I LOVE the fact that this has 4 ingrediants (that you ussually have around your house!!). Second - it is very good. I too used raspberry jam instead of plum (it was all I had) with very good results and used 5 whole chicken breast halves instead of peices. My ONLY complaint: the onions in the soup mix are still hard even after the chicken is done (Not enough "liquid" to make them soft?) - so they were scraped off the chicken. Overall - very tasty and very easy. Read More

I too used raspberry jam since it was all I had. Definately adjust cooking time for boneless breasts I didn't and not only were they fairly dry but most of the sauce had cooked away since there was no fat from the chicken. But even so they were still good. I can't wait to make them again to see how they are when cooked correctly. Even my mom who hates barbeque sauce had some and liked it. She said they taste more like teriyaki than barbeque. Read More

LOVED THIS RECIPE!! It really needs more stars! It was simple!! My family literally "ate" this one up! I cooked frozen noodles in the chicken broth and homemade mashed potatos it was awesome! Even my very picky 15 mos. old "snarffed" it up!! It's a keeper in this family. Next time I will try "playing" with different ingredents. Read More

This dish was very yummy! I used boneless chicken breast and strawberry jam as all I had in my house. I cooked the chicken for 40 minutes in the oven and I also put 1/4 cup water in the mixture as others suggested. Read More

I thought this dish was fantastic. I used blueberry preserves instead of plum and made the sauce 2 hours prior to baking so the onions would be soft. You could remove the skin as suggested but it may dry the meat out. Try covering the dish. Read More

very easy and very good. i couldn't find any plum jam so i used grape jam instead and it tasted wonderful. next time i think i would remove the skin from the chicken (except the legs/wings) because the skin on the breast didn't seem to get crispy at all and i ended up pulling it off before eating it. the remainder suace that was in the pan i put in to a gravy boat and it was wonderful poured over the chicken!
