Apricot Chicken Recipe

As promised... here is my favorite main dish apricot recipe! :) I love this for so many reasons! :) - It is delicious, I don't have to threaten I mean convince my kids to eat it because they gobble it up so fast! AND my FAVORITE part is that it seriously takes less then 5 minutes before it's ready for the oven. This is one of my "go to" recipes when I want to give up and go out to eat. :)
I've seen other apricot chicken recipes with a lot of other ingredients, but don't let the simplicity of this make you skeptical~ It is So good :).

Apricot Chicken

4-6 Chicken Breasts (must be thawed)
1 18 oz Jar of Apricot Jam
1 Packet of Onion Soup Seasoning

Yup! That's all!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place chicken in baking dish
In a separate bowl, mix the apricot jam and onion soup mix together and microwave for 1 minute.
Pour over the chicken

Bake for 45 minutes, or until chicken is completely cooked. Periodically (at least once) while cooking, baste or spoon the sauce from the pan back on to the chicken.

Serve over rice (spoon sauce from your baking dish over it) with broccoli as a side! :)

So EASY, so FAST and so YUMMY!

My whole family LOVES this dish- I hope you do to! :)
