What size for jam and dressing? Chicken boneless or no?

You can use 1 cup jam, 3/4 cup dressing, and bone-in chicken. Let us know how you like it!

I have this same recipe but use chicken breast. 6 chicken breast washed and fat cut off, pat dry. in a skillet add 2 tbs of olive oil brown chichen breast on both sides. Remove from oil, drain on papertowles. Place in a casserole dish, flat and side by side. Mix one pk of lipton onion soup mix, 1 cup of apricot jam, 3/4 cup of catlina dressing. Mix together well and pour generously over chicken breast and place in over on 375 for 45 mins. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes and aspargus. Yummy enjoy!

I was wondering what exact measurement s for the jam and dressing. Should I use yours?

What sized bottle of dressing?

Boneless or with bone?

This chicken is SO good. I make this all the time. It tastes like really good BBQ chicken. I know it might sound weird, but it works!! Give it a try.

Is the Chicken Thighs bone-in or boneless and skinless?
