Apricot Chicken/ Chicken Elegant

This recipe has been a family favorite for years. My mom is a great cook, and I took this recipe from her. It's super easy, very low in fat & calories and SOOOO good.


- 1/2 cup apricot jam (I use the sugar free version)

- 1/2 cup fat free Catalina/or Russian dressing
- 2 TBS of Lipton Onion Soup mix (dry straight from the package)

- 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Pound out your chicken breasts so they are flat and tender. Roll them, starting at one end until they are in a long tube-like form. Arrange them in a 9" by 9" pan. Mix together apricot jam, dressing, and onion soup mix. Pour entire mixture over chicken making sure the pieces are covered completely. Bake uncovered in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 mins or until done.
I serve this over brown rice and a side of steamed veggies and it's so good!
