It's been a crazy couple of months around here. I won't go into details about it because it's mostly stuff that isn't all that interesting or appropriate for a food blog, but suffice it to say that there have been challenges... doctors, female issues, a health scare, and yes, even surgery, technically two, and probably another one coming. It's been a little stressful. And that's not even counting all the copyright violations with this new viral epidemic of out of control Facebook recipe pages, that clip and re-post content from blogger's sites, like mine. Whew!

Folks sometimes show up on my site here wondering where all of the wonderful desserts are that are often associated with the South, and that are usually found in abundance on the pages of many of the other Southern bloggers out there. I do admit, a post of sweets certainly draws a lot more attention and shares on Facebook for sure! Folks sure do love their sweets.

Sweet and Tangy Russian Chicken - My Way

Sweet and Tangy Russian Chicken, traditionally made with bone-in chicken thighs, red Russian style dressing and apricot preserves.

Sweet and Tangy Russian Chicken

This recipe is a real throw back to way back that some of you might remember. Grab an old church, community or junior league cookbook, and its bound to be in there somewhere, though often called by other names and sometimes simply called Apricot Chicken.

Traditionally made with bone-in chicken thighs, red Russian style dressing and apricot preserves, I've messed around with it over the years, finding that pretty much any red style dressing works just as well, along with a multitude of preserves, jams or jellies. Sweet and tangy, almost reminiscent of our BBQ down this way, it's really a great recipe that's as easy as it comes, though a bit messy.
