Sweet Tangy Chicken (4 ingredients only)

After a long day in the office, career ladies may lack some kitchen skills so I wanted to post an easy peasy recipe for all those who need some extra help.  And this is only a 4 ingredient dish that will become one of your go-to dishes.   You can make ahead first thing in the morning up to the point of baking, place in the refrigerator, then just pop in the oven for a little over an hour, add a side and a tossed green salad.

When your done  you can serve it up and act like you are worn slap out from working so hard. Take all the compliments gracefully. You deserve it.


8 chicken thighs  – You can use a whole chicken or other parts. (Pics are thighs)

1 package dry french onion soup mix

1 (8 oz bottle) Russian dressing (I prefer Wishbone Russian dressing)

1 small jar of apricot preserves or about a cupful.


Mix all ingredients, except chicken, in a bowl.

Salt and pepper the chicken.

Pour sauce over chicken and make sure it’s coated well.

Roast uncovered at 400 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes until chicken is done. Baste several times during cooking. This is the way the chicken will look when done.
