This dish may sound odd to you, but it's really tasty. It's perfect for those who love the combination of salty and sweet. I got it from Kraft.

Sweet and Savory Baked Chicken

1¼ cups hot water
1 pkg. (6 oz.) Stove Top Stuffing Mix Reduced Sodium Chicken
6 small chicken breast cutlets
⅔ cup orange juice
¼ cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 400ยบ.

Combine water and stuffing mix; let sit until water is absorbed.

Place chicken in a 13x9” baking dish. Mix juice, sugar, and oil until blended; pour over chicken. Top with stuffing.

Bake 35 min. or until chicken is done and stuffing is crispy on top.

Makes 6 servings.

I only made a couple of changes. I reduced the amount of water you put with the stuffing, because some of it got a little bit soggy. The stuff on top was nice and crunchy, though. And I reduced the brown sugar just a tad as well. Next time I might try marinating the chicken for an hour or so to see if that makes a difference. The chicken is pretty tender as it is, though.

Jim absolutely loved this dish. And I love how easy it is to throw together. I am a big fan of chicken dishes that you can throw into the oven and forget about for half an hour.
