As a parent I am always trying to get my kids to try new things, but sometimes they have it stuck in their head that they aren't going to like something just because of what's in it.
So, sometimes I have to just let my kids eat dinner without telling them what's in it. You know, it could be the most amazing thing in the world and taste so delicious, but if it has one single ingredient that they don't like, or they think sounds gross they won't eat it. This was one of those meals. I knew they would love it if they tasted it so when they asked what it was I just said chicken.
They ate every bite and went back for seconds. I never did tell them what was in it.
4-6 chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 pkg Lipton onion soup mix
1 small bottle apricot preserves
1 small bottle (8 oz) Russian dressing
Mix soup, apricot and dressing, pour over chicken pieces. Bake in a dish at 350 for 1 hour. Serve over rice.
I got this recipe from my neighbor a while ago and finally gave it a try. We loved it. I will definitely make it again.
