Crockpot Apricot Chicken

by Yuva

This super simple four ingredient crockpot recipe is so delicious and flavorful. Serve over hot cooked rice, pasta, or couscous. In response to the 'very sweet' comments, I added a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar the last time I made this, and my family loved it!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours
Total Time: 8 hours, 15 minutes

•6 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breasts (not thawed)
•1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
•1/2 cup Russian or French salad dressing
•1 cup apricot preserves or jam
•2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
•1 tsp. dried thyme or basil leaves
•1/8 tsp. pepper

In 3-4 quart slow cooker, arrange chicken pieces. Mix remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and pour over chicken. Stir to coat. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours until chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender.

If you like, you can thicken the mixture before serving. Combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water or chicken stock and mix until smooth. Add to the crockpot; turn to high for 10-15 minutes until sauce is thickened. Serve with hot cooked rice or pasta.
