Delicious, quick & easy. I used homemade peach jam and put frozen peas with my rice in my rice cooker. The onion soup mix with the sweet fruit was the perfect combination. I can vary this recipe depending on the type of canned fruit jam I have on hand.

This is great as it is. Here are my custom suggestions: Add green onions and garlic to the oil after chicken is seared WELL. I added a bit of hot sauce for a kick, dry ginger and a couple dashes of vinegar for acidity as well as a little less preserves for those who thought it was too sweet. Topped with a few slivered almonds for texture followed by lemon and orange zest; WOW this sent it over the edge. Thanks Smuckers for this great idea and allowing me to personalize and make it my own.


This recipe was easy and so delicious. It was a bit on the sweet side, but that was a hit with the kids. I only had apricot preserves, so I went with that. All in all, it was a big hit.
