I have over my cooking years tried complicated recipes with numerous ingredients. Sometimes they are worth the effort but often not. I have had some of the best results with simple recipes that are fast with few ingredients. So it is with the one I am sharing with you this week. I recently received this recipe from my friend, Joyce Jorgenson. I may try it with pork chops sometime too.
Sweet and Sour Chicken:
4 chicken breast halves
1 cup Western salad dressing
1 cup pineapple jam ( I found this at Wal-mart, you probably could substitute apricot jam)
1/2 pkg. dry Lipton onion soup
Lay chicken breasts in a single layer in a greased baking pan, whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over chicken, cover with foil, bake covered at 325 degrees for 1 hour, then uncover, spooning sauce again over chicken and bake another 20-30 minutes. Serve over rice if desired. Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
