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!
