Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together the thousand island salad dressing, pineapple-apricot preserves, grated onion, dry onion soup mix, and cinnamon until well blended. Place chicken in a large, oiled baking dish. Arrange potato halves around the edges of the pan, fitting chicken and potatoes tightly together in a single layer. Brush sauce over chicken, coating completely. Cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and remove foil. Continue baking 15 minutes more, or until potatoes are fork-tender and chicken is no longer pink in center. Both should have a beautiful golden brown glaze.

This is great, I was skeptical about the pineapple-apricot preserves but ooooooooooo it was good. That must be the secret ingredient, thanks for sharing Jen my family loves it!



My family and I really liked this. The kids picked the bones CLEAN. I didn't know whether to take the skin off the chicken or not, so I did my best to sear the thighs first on an electric griddle. The skin got "fleshy" again after cooking in the oven so next time I think I will skin the chicken first. (or maybe even deep frying the chicken with a batter on it. I bet that would glaze deliciously!) I used ketchup and mayonaisse (not miracle whip!) instead of dressing, peach preserves only, and kinda made up my own "onion soup/seasoning" mix. I will definitely make this again, thank you! Very good.



thank you justjen33 this was marvelous, although i did NOT add apricot. I did use pineapple ( crushed) & everything else. This will be a regular @ my house.
