New Year's Eve Chicken

"This is my all time favorite chicken dish. My mom used to make it for her annual New Year's Eve party, so it was a treat! She wouldn't give me the recipe until I moved out of town! The flavor seems to intensify over time, so they make even yummier leftovers! I can almost guarantee you will be asked for the recipe!"

It's not that it isnt good- it just wasnt what I thought it would be. If I were to make this again I would change a few things. First off- I would not cover it while cooking. It seemed more boiled than it was baked. I like my wings a little more candied. Plus- I would add half the amount of italian dressing than called for. The ingredients are complimentary- but the italian dressing overpowers the apricot/onion taste that I believe would be tasty.


I made this and a variation for a spicy recipe everyone loved them and actually really enjoyed my spicy variation. Was Great Thanks and Happy 2009!


This recipe was just okay. My guests liked them butsaid they lacked that special kick taste. I won't make them again for my parties.
