Be careful..I was looking for tangy but this has more of a "barbeque" taste. Read More

Really good basic. For those of you wanting a little more "tang" try this: to the basic mixture add 2 T rice vinegar 2 T soy or teriyaki sauce 1 t garlic 1 t spicy mustard. Taste the sauce before you add the raw chicken and adjust to suit your taste. My kids love it either way. You just can't go wrong with this recipe!! Read More

This is a great recipe. I used French dressing because I couldn't find Russian. My husband loved it and asked me to add this to our recipe rotation. Read More

This recipe is excellent. I've used chicken thighs instead of breasts marmalade instead of apricot and I've tried it in the slow cooker. It always comes out fantastic! Read More

My sister-in-law has been making this for years and she was kind enough to share it with me -- it's a colorful tasty recipe that's good enough for company. Spoon the chicken and sauce over white rice and serve with mixed veggies and a green salad. I always have the ingredients in my pantry. Use it for pork chops too! Read More

Tangy and tasty. I made my own Russian dressing with equal part ketchup and mayo a bit of lemon juice and some parsley. I poured it over whole chicken pieces and baked at 375 for about an hour. This was a hit with both hubby and the kids. Read More

So tasty and easy too. I didn't have Russian dressing so I used Thousand Island instead. The chicken turned out very moist. I used the remaining sauce over rice pilaf and served dinner with sweet corn. My picky husband ate it which merits a rave review. I only gave it 4 stars because my kids thought it had too much onion and my 3 year old wouldn't eat it at all. Next time I'll cut down on the onion soup mix. Read More

This was delicious though I think next time I'll use more apricot preserves. For the russian dressing I used Thousand Island. Everyone thought I was super creative so thanks for the recipe! Read More
