Very yummy and extraordinarily easy to make! I used Catalina, which added zing, and used No Sugar Added apricot preserves--tasted more natural that way. My husband gobbled it up! Great for a meal you don't want to spend much time preparing. Later note: I've made this multiple times, and lately decided to try something new with it. I used chicken pieces instead of breasts, since I had a package on hand I needed to use, and I put this all in the slow cooker rather than the oven. I used fat-free Catalina and no-sugar added apricot preserves. I also added some minced garlic (from a jar). WOW!!! I think I liked the flavor even better this way, and the chicken was incredibly tender. The minced garlic added a little something extra that made the sauce incredible.

I have been making this recipe for years but with a twist. I pound the chicken till it is very thin. Make stuffing (I use stove-top). Put a spoon fool of stuffing on top of the chicken and roll the chicken up. Then place the chicken in a casserole dish and cover with mixture. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.



I have been making this recipe since the early 1970's. It's a family favorite and I often make it with whole chicken cut into eighths or just boneless, skinless chicken thighs for pot luck dinners and as my contribution to parties. I recommend if you can find it to use Wishbone RED Russian dressing. Much less sweet taste than the pink Russian dressing. I live in Morris County, Denville, NJ and the Key Foods Store has this brand. I have recently found the Wishbone Red Russian dressing in the local Shop-Rite markets. I also use Lipton Onion Soup Mix. I have tried other brands and found them too salty or to intense taste of dried onions.
