This is a great recipe. My husband loves it. I made a few changes to make it a little heathier. Instead of Russian dressing I used a raspberry vinegerette preferably one with splenda. I also use a entire jar of apricot preserves also the sugar free variety with Splenda. This helps lower the amount of sugar in the recipe and cuts out a lot of calories and fat that is in the Russian dressing. I think it tastes better too.
I make this recipe all of the time but I only use one envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix and I use boneless chicken breasts. I have grown up on this recipe since I was a little girl. I love the sauce over my chicken and my rice. My whole family loves it too.
I prepared this for a group and it was just wonderful! I cooked the chicken overnight in the crock pot then put it all together the next morning. I only used one soup envelope and one cup of pineapple preserves along with two small bottles of the Russian dressing. It made the most wonderful glaze. I will add this to my favorites!
I grew up on a similar rendition of this recipe and it's one of my kids favorites today. I use boneless breasts and mix 1 package dry onion soup 1 bottle russian dressing 1 jar apricot preserves and 1 jar pineapple preserves. I use 6 - 8 chicken breasts too. Yummy!
This was horrible. The taste was extremely bland. The sauce became too thin during cooking.The presentation was very poor. I would not use as much Russian dressing more apricot preserves and double the dry onion soup mix. Also I would probably throw in garlic onions and some curry/ginger and maybe some soy sauce. I really don't know. I do know this is not a fix again for our family.
my mom made this recipe every week when i was growing up in the oven. the chicken was always too dry- I tried it in a slow cooker and it came out MUCH better. if you still want to bake the chicken I recommend putting foil over the pan for all but the last 2 minutes. this will help keep the moisture in.
This is okay especially for kids. You can toss in pineapple chunks too. For adults a little bit of crushed red pepper flakes makes it less bland and similar to a dish at PF Chang's. Easy to keep ingredients in the pantry. Serve over rice.
