Quick and Easy Preparation. Low or sugar free jelly or preserves works well, too. Adapted from a recipe I received over 25 years ago, where I cut out a lot of unnecessary cholesterol and it didn't affect the flavor in the least. You can use chicken pieces of your choice, just adjust your cooking time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly salt each chicken piece and then add black pepper and garlic powder to suit your taste buds.
  2. Heat olive oil in non-stick skillet on medium heat.
  3. Brown seasoned side of chicken first and turn to brown the other side (about 3-4 mins each side). Turn off heat and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl add onion soup mix and with fingers sprinkle over chicken pieces. This method spreads more evenly than sprinkling direct from packet. (I use any leftover mix to season a vegetable).
  5. Using a spoon, drop in small dallops about 1 heaping Tablespoon of jam/jelly/preserves per chicken breast.
  6. Return skillet to a Low heat, cover with lid and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until all juices run clear.
  7. Some of the glaze will run to bottom of skillet. I recommend adding 1 T of water, stir and drizzle the sauce on ea. plate and top with chicken, makes for a nice presentation.
