Recipe Box: Easy Apricot Chicken

Recipe Box: Easy Apricot Chicken

After a long day at the office, all we want in the world is a yummy, easy, and quick home cooked meal. When we spotted this Easy Apricot Chicken recipe from member Lindsey of Umbrella Drink, we knew our post-work prayers had been answered. Lindsey inherited this recipe from her husband’s family and says that “it is the perfect weeknight meal” and makes for great leftovers (lunch anyone?). Our favorite thing about this recipe is that the prep time is only five minutes. Win! Simply prep the chicken when you get home, pop it in the oven for 40 minutes while you settle in and change clothes and before you know it–you have yourself an easy-peasy meal fit for a queen (or king). Here’s how to make it:

Easy Apricot Chicken

Serves 4


  • 1 pound of chicken
  • 1 Lipton Onion Soup packet
  • 1 jar or apricot preserves (about 1 cup)
  • 1 bottle of Russian Dressing


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375-degrees
  2. Mix the onion soup packet, apricot preserves, and dressing in a bowl. Beat the clumps out with a fork.
  3. Pour the mixture into a baking dish. Down the chicken in the mixture.
  4. Cook for 40 minutes or until your chicken is cooked all the way through.
  5. Serve over brown rice or quinoa with a side of veggies and enjoy!

We love this recipe and already gave it a try. It totally lived up to our expectations and it’s become a staple in our weekly recipe repertoire. (By the way, our boyfriends loved it!)

    Thanks so much for the feature!


    Chicken is sooo easy to do things with; try some fruit cocktail or peaches, apples, pretty much anything you wish to put on it and bake it and it turns out great… I do all kinda crazy things with chicken and have never had it come out bad.
