I started going to a Fitness Club on campus last week from 5:15-6:15 pm so I was trying to have dinner all prepared when I left so we could eat as soon as I got home. My friend compiled a big list of recipes from friends and emailed them out. I've been trying alot of the crockpot ones since I can start them earlier in the day and they are all done after my workout.
Four people submitted variations to this recipe, which surprised me because I had never heard of it. I'll put the variations in parenthesis.
1 package dry Italian dressing mix (or 1 package dry onion soup mix)
1 18 oz. bottle of Wishbone brand Russian salad dressing (or Catalina dressing)
1 small jar of apricot jam
Mix these all together in a crockpot. Add 1- 1 1/2 Pounds chicken (breasts or tenders). Cook on high 3-4 hours or low for 5-6 hours or until done. Serve over rice or potatoes.
My mom makes apricot jam so I used what I had from her. I put probably 3/4 of a pint jar in it. It makes alot of sauce so you could probably use a cup of jam or add even more chicken than it calls for. I used the dry onion soup mix since I had it already. My friend said she thought it tasted like Tiny Spicy Chicken when she used the Italian dressing mix. I think I used 4 or 5 chicken breasts and cut them into 4 strips.
