    This is a 4 ingredient dish that will become one of your go-to dishes. You can make ahead first thing in the morning up to the point of baking, place in the refrigerator, then just pop in the oven for a little over an hour, add a side and a tossed green salad. Dinner is served!
    8 chicken thighs – You can use a whole chicken or other parts. We love thighs the best. And we wantthem on the bone with the skin.
    1 package dry french onion soup mix
    1 (8 oz bottle) Russian dressing (I prefer Wishbone Russian dressing)
    1 small jar of apricot preserves or about a cupful.


    Mix all ingredients, except chicken, in a bowl.

    Place chicken pieces in a baking pan. Sprinkle with pepper. No extra salt is needed.

    Pour sauce over chicken and make sure it’s coated well.

    Roast uncovered at 400 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes until chicken is done. Baste several times during cooking. This is the way the chicken will look when done.
