Recipe from Russia: Non Russian chicken…

wishbone-Russian-DressingThis recipe is one of my favorites. It is not one that I can make in Russia very easily, because we do not have Russian style dressing in Russia. You know that famous Russian, Catalina dressing that is yummy on salads. I was always amazed that we have a Russian dressing and Russians are like, “What? You mean Mayo?”

I guess you have to live in Russia to understand that remark above! Never the less I have yet to find my favorite salad dressing in Russia and it is even called Russian. You would think – Nah lets not think…

Lets just eat and make a wonderful tangy chicken that will tantalize your taste buds, even if it is not actually a Russian recipe. Well in name only…

Ingredients:
1 kilo of boneless skinless chicken breasts
10 tablespoons Russian salad dressing
8 tablespoons apricot preserves
1 (1-ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 cup hot water

Make:
Place chicken in a large covered glass baking dish and set aside…
In a bowl, mix Russian dressing, preserves, soup mix and hot water…
Pour mixture over chicken…
Cover and let marinate in refrigerator 4 to 6 hours…
Important to do this in the fridge for safety reasons…
When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees…
Bake the chicken with a covering on, in center of oven, for about an hour or until the chicken is tender and the juices run clear when stuck with a sharp knife…
