Well hello there!
Ready for a new week?
I’m ready to give you some yummy recipes for the week!
You gotta love chicken, right? I have this Chicken Piccata, Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesan.
But onto this amazing Russian chicken recipe…
Four-Ingredient Baked Russian Chicken
Easy chicken dinner with only 4 ingredients!Print Pin Rate
- 9x13 pan
- 1 bottle Russian dressing
- 1 packet dry onion soup mix
- 1 jar apricot jam/preserves
- 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Trim chicken of any fat. Rinse and pat dry and place in a 9x13 pan.
- Mix dressing, soup mix and jam together in a bowl. Pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve over rice. Enjoy!!
- NOTE:There's no wrong or right to the amount of jam and Russian dressing. The last time I made it, I used the entire bottle of dressing but used about 3/4 of the bottle of jam. Do whatever you think tastes good. Either way, you will have plenty of sauce left over to drizzle over rice!

Look at that chicken! YUM!
You know how you have those couple of staple meals you know you can always rely on when you have company or just can’t think of anything else to make?
This Russian Chicken is one of those for me.
Pulling it out of the oven:
Perhaps you’ve already made this before, or maybe you’ve never heard of it – but let me tell you, it is SO easy and really, really good.
Four ingredients in a 9×13 baking dish, bake for 45 minutes to an hour and serve over rice. Best. Dinner. Ever.
My boys and husband love this chicken! If you’ve never tried it before, give it a shot. You won’t be sorry!

I’ve always wondered why they called it the Russian dressing 🙂
Gail mitz says
Sometimes Russian dressing hard to find regular orange French dressing good substitute
Works just fine
Excellent recipe . Only had a quarter of a jar of apricot preserves. Will use more next batch . This is a keeper .
Thank you Ronaldo!

I’ve been making Russian chicken for 13-14 years and the only difference in my recipe is I add pineapple chunks to the sauce after it’s poured on the chicken.
The lady who showed me this dish also use to use pineapple apricot jam in hers as she could buy them where she lived. Sadly I can hardly ever find Pineapple jam anymore.
Thanks for sharing!
Max Ott says
I make this often, but I add 1 cup of mayonnaise. If you use homemade Russian dressing, you won’t need this (or not as much). This is a sure crowd-pleaser!
I am so glad you like it!! Thanks Max!
Made tonight for dinner used orange marmalade couldn’t find apricot jelly really good I’ll definitely make it again
