Baked Apricot Chicken and Rice

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by TishT

This is good both hot and cold. Served cold in the summer months, you can garnish the dish with fresh fruit.

This did not have a good flavor at all. I felt that the salad dressing overpowered the Apricot flavor. Will not be making again.
