Sweet and Tangy Chicken

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Chef TraceyMae

This recipe is great for people who cook the semi-homemade way. I got this from my microwave cookbook and that's the only way I know how to cook it. You can even change up the preserves for a different flavor.

Oh my was this good. Extreemly easy and quick. I used thighs with bones, but less the skin. Otherwise made as is. I cooked mine 14 mins because of the smaller pieces. Tested done at that time. Served with mashed potatoes and greenbeans. DH said this is really good chicken for microwaved.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 12x8x2 inch dish, arrange chicken pieces with the thickest, meaty pieces to the outside edges of the dish.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, soup mix, dressing and preserves.
  3. Spread this mixture over the chicken, coating each piece well.
  4. Cover with wax paper.
  5. Microwave on High for 18-22 minutes. (If your microwave doesn't have a turntable, turn chicken 1/4 turn halfway through cooking time.).
  6. Let stand 5-10 minutes before you serve it so the chicken absorbs the flavor of the sauce.
  7. Serve over rice.
