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


  • 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).


  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.
