Easy Apricot Chicken



Cook time: 40 Min  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 4
Ingredients
1 - 2 chicken breasts or two chicken thighs boneless and skinless per person
1 - 1/2 tsp garlic (to your liking)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 sm bottle of Zesty Italian dressing (8 oz)
1 jar apricot jam or preserves (18 oz)
1 pkg Lipton onion soup mix
1 c rice for 2 people (unless each person wants more)
2 c chicken broth per cup of rice
Directions
1. Take 2 cups of chicken broth for every 1 cup of water. Bring broth to a rolling boil and then add the rice. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and turn off the rice. Let sit until the chicken is done. Then you should have nice fluffy rice.
2. Spray an oven-safe pan with Pam of choice. Add the chicken. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken.
3. In a bowl, mix the dressing, apricot jam, onion soup mix, and garlic together until well blended. Pour over the chicken. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 min.
4. Check the chicken at 25 min. Poke with a knife. If the juices run clear, it's done. If not, cook another ten minutes and check again. Serve over steamed rice.
