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

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    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]

    Another good apricot and chicken recipe:
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Place in baking dish.

    Mix together 1/4 cup mayo lite and 1/4 cup Apricot jam (pure fruit kind) and spread over chicken breasts and bake at 350 till chicken is done and topping is nice and puffy, about 45 minutes.

    5 points a serving (1 breast)

    Dmarkey – Ok, you reheat it at 250, but what temperature do you originally bake it at?

    One thing I forgot to mention about this recipe is that I do not care for apricots, yet I liked this recipe. Go figure.

    Hi jendear,

    This sounds good. Do you think I could make it in my crockpot? If so how long should I cook it? I love my crockpot cause I'm always running my DD places...choir on monday, WW (for both of us ) on tues, dance on wed...etc, etc..

    I cooked the chicken breasts in crockpot first bc they were frozen and andn I still had to pull skin/bones off. I made the rest of the recipe in the oven to get a candied top. It was OK over rice but needs something. Green onion maybe? I'd probably make again.
