As I said, the theme of the shower is simple recipes for new moms, and this apricot chicken recipe is just that. In fact, after I gave birth to my first baby my friend Emily brought me this very recipe. I loved it and asked her for the recipe, and when she gave it to me I was flabbergasted by how simple it was! It’s not my fanciest or most decadent dinner, but it is crazy simple and hits the spot! I do love me some sweet meat! Let me show you how simple it is and then you can print out the recipe with the exact measurements. Be sure to jump over to Katie’s blogs and say hi!

Grab your four ingredients: chicken, apricot jam, dry French Onion soup mix, and salad dressing.

Place the chicken in a casserole dish and mix the other three ingredients together. Pour the mixture on top of the chicken.

Now bake, serve over rice, and enjoy!
