Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken Recipe:
1 1/2 cups apricot preserves
1 cup Russian dressing
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
6 chicken breasts
Mix together the preserves, dressing and soup mix.
Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker; pour mixture over chicken.
Cover; cook on High for 1 hour.
Reduce heat to Low and continue cooking for 3-4 hours.
Before serving, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. I served the chicken and the sauce over rice, and added a salad for a complete meal.
How was it?
I must disclose up front that I feed some picky eaters! Getting them to try something new is like pulling teeth. Everyone did at least give it a try. It was good, but a little on the sweet side for our taste. There were enough leftovers for my lunch the next day. So I added some red pepper flakes to it (just a few shakes) as it reheated. That seemed to temper down the sweetness a bit.
