I love it when this happens!

Tonight when we were eating dinner, Zteen looked up and said, "Mom, this is delicious. This is my favorite thing you cook!"

Yee haw!

AND it is easy. AND it is relatively low in WW points. AND if you cook it for company they think it is special. All that in one easy package. And if teenagers love it, anyone should love it. I know, I know, some of you wouldn't be caught dead using Lipton Onion Soup Mix, but I'm no purist, and getting a meal on the table on a weeknight FAST is a big deal around here.

Peerless Poultry

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 6oz can of orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 pkg of dry onion soup mix

Mix oj and onion soup mix together, making sure there are no lumps from the soup mix. Spray a glass baking dish with PAM. Pour 1/2 the oj/onion mix on the bottom of the pan. Lay the chicken breasts on top. Pour the other 1/2 of the oj/onion mix on top of the chicken. Cover with foil.

Bake at 400 degrees for one hour.

I serve this over brown rice. Tonight we had steamed cauliflower for the side dish, but I think it would be prettier to have something green or yellow, like broccoli or squash.



That does sound really good, Terry. I'd ask you to send me some, but I don't think it would fit in my P.O. Box and I don't know how well it would travel by mail. But I've heard tupperware can do wonderful things.

That does sound good but you know it is Friday and you are making me crazy with the meat talk. I really struggle to not eat meat. lol

I bet this would be good with rice and spinach. Have to try in the next few weeks.

Recipe corner!

You could throw in a few slivered almonds and a can of drained mandarin oranges and the resulting sauce would go even more colorfully over white rice. I'll try it either way. Thanks.

There's a very similar recipe called "Forgotten Chicken" that even contains the raw rice. It all cooks together and people just love it, even though it's unsophisticated.

Getting them to eat it is the ultimate sophistication.
