Wouldn’t you really like to try something a little different in your meals? Well, think no more. Want no more. There is no reason why you will ever have to worry yourself about good tasting chicken.

Here are two of my family secret recipes. Please try them and enjoy their taste.


  • 8 chicken thighs
  • 1 lg onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 5 T. soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 6oz.water chestnuts,drained and sliced
  • 1 16 oz. jar apricot preserves
  • 1 1/2 cup Kraft Barbecue sauce
  • 1 large bell pepper sliced
  • 1 pot hot cooked rice

Thinly coat chicken with the flour. In Dutch oven, brown the chicken in oil; drain; discard the oil. Return chicken to the pan. In a large bowl, combine and mix well the preserves, barbecue sauce, onion, and soy sauce. Pour over the chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook 50 minutes, turning the pieces twice, scraping the bottom of the pan. During the last 15 minutes, add the bell pepper and water chestnuts, making sure they are covered with sauce. Serve over hot rice.


  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 cup plain flour

  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can water
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed tarragon leaves

Lightly coat chicken pieces in the flour (to prevent excessive splattering). In a skillet, brown the chicken; discard the oil. In a bowl, mix well the soup, water, lemon juice, paprika, pepper, salt, and tarragon leaves. Pour over. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook 40 minutes. Stir and turn occasionally. Serve over hot cooked rice. Garnish with parsley tops and thin lemon slices.
