Jam, soup mix flavor chicken


August 29, 2007|By Julie Rothman | Julie Rothman,Special to The Sun

Raymond Altieri of Dundalk was looking for a recipe for orange chicken that he says was floating around about 20 years ago. The main ingredients were orange marmalade and Lipton onion-soup mix.

Robert Muehleisen of Pennington, N.J., sent in a recipe on behalf of his 89-year-old mother, Margaret Muehleisen, who had seen Altieri's chicken recipe request in her local paper. His mother calls this recipe simply "good chicken" and he says his family has been enjoying it for years. The only change I made to her recipe was that I let the chicken marinate overnight before baking it. I served it over a bed of rice, and the finished chicken looked and tasted wonderful.

Good Chicken

Serves 4

one 12-ounce jar apricot or orange preserves

4 bone-in chicken breasts or 1 small chicken, cut up
