My mother got this recipe years ago from a friend and we have been making it ever since. I think that her friend called it Sweet and Tangy Chicken but our family has always just said Red Chicken. It's good paired with mashed potatoes or rice.

  • Mix apricot preserves, Russian dressing, soy sauce, yellow mustard, onion, and garlic together in a large bowl.

  • Place chicken pieces into the apricot mixture and stir to coat.

  • Transfer chicken and sauce to a baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the sauce is bubbling and thickened and the chicken is no longer pink inside, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Turn the chicken pieces twice while baking.

  • If sauce seems thin, transfer chicken to a platter; place baking dish of sauce under broiler until sauce has thickened, 2 to 5 minutes.

This is almost the same thing my mother has used for years.She never used the mustard or onion. I can't wait to try it again with the onion and mustard. I have used some red pepper flakes for a bit of kick once in a while. Read More

Made this for the first time. The family loved it and I will make it again. It was easy to do and had a good flavor. I used boneless skinless thighs and forgot the onion and it still tasted good. I'll try to follow recipe exactly next time. Read More
