Raspberry Basil Chicken
2 1/2 to 3 lb broiler-fryer, cut up (I substituted chicken breasts)
1 tsp. dried basil, crushed
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tbsp. butter
pinch salt and pepper
1 c. raspberry preserves
1/2 c. water
hot cooked rice
Wash chicken and remove skin. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken in baking
dish. Sprinkle with basil. Top with sliced onions, dot with butter, and sprinkle
with salt & pepper. Bake, partially covered, for 20 minutes. Drain pan juices,
reserving 1/2 cup.
In small bowl, mix reserved juices with preserves and spoon
mixture evenly over chicken. Bake uncovered another 20 minutes, basting
occasionally. Serve over hot, cooked rice.
