Easy Russian Chicken Recipe

Last week I decided to sit down, make a Meal Plan for the week as part of my “Fall into Fitness Challenge” …. and hopefully stick to it. I have to say I am impressed with myself as I managed to stick to it with only one modification.

One of the meals I made was Russian Chicken, a recipe that I got from my Aunt…sure hope it’s okay to share this and it’s not a family secret 😉

Russian Chicken Recipe Pipers Run

Ingredients:

  • 6 pieces of chicken (I used 4 and it wasn’t enough)
  • Apricot Jam (Large)
  • Russian Salad Dressing (Large)
  • Onion Soup Mix (One package)
  • Rice (White, Brown, Basmati – any rice will do).

Directions:

  1. Boil or bake chicken until cooked, let cool and cut up into cubes.
  2. Mix together apricot jam, russian salad dressing and one package of the onion soup mix; put in large pan.
  3. Cover and put in the oven at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. (You want it to just start to boil but don’t burn it).
  4. Make rice (4-6 servings depending on how many you’ll be serving).
  5. Take out of oven and let sit/cool.
  6. Dish up rice and then cover with russian chicken
  7. Enjoy!

This recipe is so simple and my toddler actually eats it – WIN WIN for MOMMY! I didn’t try to make it vegan but if I did, this is what I would do.

Vegan Russian Chicken/Sausage:

  1. Same ingredients but I would swap out the real chicken for vegan meat such as sausages or fake vegan chicken.
  2. I would make the “sauce” and divided it into 1/2 (two pans)
  3. I would put the sauce and vegan meat of choice in one pan and the other pan would have real chicken.
  4. Rice – it’s vegan…your good there 🙂

A simple recipe and easy to make it vegan.

Enjoy!
