    Oops, I probably should have put this in the chicken category. I'll go post it there. Sorry.

    Ok gang, here's another really good chicken recipe that is DH and kid friendly.

    Apricot Chicken
    1 16-18 oz. jar Apricot Preserves (I used the Smuckers all fruit, because I thought it would have less sugar, therefore, less points.)
    1 16-18 oz. bottle Fat Free Catalina Dressing
    1/2 - 1 package Dry Lipton Onion Soup Mix
    About 1 1/2 - 2 pounds of chicken.

    Mix all this together, pour it over chicken so it is totally immersed.

    Cook uncovered 50-60 minutes.

    Chef's notes:
    Best if cooked the day before.
    To re-heat: cover with foil, at 250 degrees for about 1/2 hour or until bubbly.

    This makes a ton of sauce! So, after we took the chicken of the pan, I loaded it up with more chicken, cooked it, and froze it for another meal.

    I used chicken tenders (my package = 4 pieces for 2 points), put them in still frozen, and cooked them 60 minutes. At least in my oven, I would cook them less time, they were a little dry.) So, I'd say 50 minutes for the tenders and 60 for breasts.

    This is what I figured for points for the ingredients I used.
    4 chicken tenders = 2
    3 T. of sauce = 2

    Just thought I'd mention that I am NOT a fan of apricots, yet I liked this recipe.

    It was very tasty!! Hope you like it. [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    Great recipe. I made this for a crowd and it was a big hit. Everyone complimented it and asked how it was made. It DOES make a lot of sauce. Very easy, definitely a keeper! Glad I found it.
