Serves 4

This is one of the National Chicken Cooking Contest winners, and it’s easy enough for the beginning cook. The original recipe called for adding a teaspoon of salt to the sweet and sour mixture, but I found that the salt in the salad dressing and the onion soup mix was enough. If your kids like foods salty, they may want to sprinkle more on at the end.

1 chicken, cut in serving pieces

1 bottle (8-ounces) Russian salad dressing

1 envelope (1-3/8-ounces) dry onion soup mix

1 jar (10-ounces) apricot pre


Preheat oven to 350oF. Place chicken, skin side up, in single layer in large shallow baking dish. In a large measuring cup combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, for about 1 hour, or until cooked through.
