Krazy in the Kitchen: Wishbone Dressing $0.09

These first two recipes are tried and true classics that are a regular part of my cooking repertoire- the rest are some great recipes that I'm anxious to try. I love stockpiling salad dressing, especially Russian and Italian! And with Wishbone dressing only $0.09 each at Albertsons, how can you go wrong?

GLAZED CHICKEN

Combine:
1 bottle Russian salad dressing
1 10-12 oz jar Apricot preserves
2 pkgs dry onion soup mix

Place chicken, cut up, on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush generously with sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour 15 min.

Sauce will keep one month stored in fridge.

Thanks to my Great Aunt Margaret Ann!

PASTA SALAD

1 large pkg. multicolored sprial pasta
Diced Red Pepper, green pepper, tomato, cucumber, red onion, mild yellow chili pepper, cheese, cauliflower, sun dried tomatoes, etc.
2 cans sliced olives
2 bottles Italian salad dressing
1/2 cup cubed or grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese

Cook Pasta. Rinse thouroughly. Add all ingredients and toss.

Thanks Heather's Mom, Joan Swensen!
