Got this recipe from a roommate and have received countless compliments in dinner groups. When I'm cooking for dinner group (a lot of people), sometimes I use a 16-ounce bottle Italian dressing with an 18-ounce jar of apricot jam.

  • Bring rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken breasts on both sides, about 2 minutes per side.

  • Combine apricot jam, Italian-style salad dressing, and dried onions together in a bowl. Place browned chicken in a baking dish and pour jam mixture over the chicken; bake for 15 minutes. Add the pineapple, chopped onion and chopped red bell pepper; continue baking until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink inside, another 15 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This was such a great recipe! I nixed the dried onion and added a dash of red pepper flakes for a little heat. After browning the chicken a bit on the stove I threw everything together in my slow cooker and put it on high for about 3-4 hours. The chicken shredded up nicely which I thought made it easier to serve and eat! Great recipe that is super easy and makes for a quick unique supper! Thanks! Read More
