Chicken Thighs January 9, 2009

I found this recipe for chicken thighs, which I had in the fridge.  It almost sounded so gross that it had to be good. It is a very odd combination of things.  It turned out really good, and will be a nice recipe to have on hand for nights when I don’t feel like doing much.  It was definitely easy. 


Here’s the recipe:


8-10 chicken thighs, drumsticks and/or breasts (I just used the 5 thighs I had)

1 cup French dressing

1 cup water

8 oz jar apricot jam

1 envelope onion soup mix


Mix last 4 ingredients together in a blender.  Pour 1/2 over chicken.  Bake for 45 minutes at 350.  Pour remaining sauce over and continue to bake for another half hour.  Since I only used 5 thighs, I baked it for 20 minutes, poured the rest of the sauce over and baked for about 20 minutes more.


I made some orzo with fresh diced tomatoes mixed in on the side, which was good with the extra sauce poured over it.  We had carrots and green beans for our veggies and the carrots were good with the sweet sauce, too!


Nothing fancy, but a nice quick and easy dinner.
