    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You can use a whole cut-up chicken or 10 chicken thighs if desired and increase baking time. if you are in a hurry you can omit the browning, but the chicken will not be as good, you can double this recipe but you will need a large baking dish, or just double the sauce amounts. Serve with cooked rice. Do not season the chicken with any salt, the dry soup mix already has enough in it.

      Yum!! I don't know what else to say. I had to sub Thousand Island for the French salad dressing (too lazy to go back to the store!) and my breasts were large bone-in so I increased the cooking time. Even picky DS1 said he really liked the sauce, and that's something special. This is definitely gonna be a repeat recipe around here.

      Awesome recipe--loved it. Normally wouldn't have tried this one but I just happened to have homemade Russian salad dressing on hand (recipe no. 34564) which I had made for Reuben sandwiches right after St. Patrick's Day. Well, I gotta tell ya, when I see a recipe by Kittencal, I just know it's gonna be real, real good!! Thanks for sharing.

      ***FANTASTIC*** The sauce on this chicken was just so good! I made exactly as stated except I seasoned the chicken breasts with garlic powder and pepper while browning. I really love how quick this recipe comes together and I served the sauce over baby carrots. I definitely plan on making this again.
