Gimmie Five (or less) - Recipes with 5 or less ingredients

Here are a couple of my stand-by recipes that need only five ingredients (or less!). I am a very, very simple cook and like recipes that have few ingredients and ones that are easy to find.

Apricot Chicken

1 package dry onion soup mix

1 cup apricot jam

1 cup french dressing

6-8 pieces skinless chicken breasts or thighs

Combine first 3 ingredients. Place chicken in crockpot. Pour sauce over top, making sure each piece has sauce on it. Cook on low 7-9 hours. Serve with rice. Makes great sauce! Yum!

Mock Caesar Salad

3 Tablespoons cider vinegar

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/3 cup olive oil

7 cups torn romaine lettuce

Mix first 4 ingredients in blender (I use my magic bullet). Pour over greens and mix to cover greens. Serve immediately. YUMMY!

If you'd like some more great recipes with five ingredients or less, head over to Rocks in My Dryer.

I'm a big apricot fan, so we'll have to give the chicken a try! Thanks much!

I have a magic bullet too really just got into using it . Used mostly for smoothies. Do you have the one with the juicer? Have you tried it?

The Apricot Chicken looks really interesting. I'm always eager to try yummy-looking crockpot recipes -- They're essential for piano lesson days. Thanks for posting this!
