Apricot Chicken

This recipe also comes from the cookbook included in my fantabulously cool giveaway that is still going on through Thursday night.  Click now and enter if you haven't already!


Don't worry, you're not going blind. That's one fuzzy picture.  I was pretty hungry, and ready to dive in.  Couldn't be bothered with "proper lighting" and all that jazz.


This recipe is just about as easy as it gets, and it's done in the crockpot. But I'm sure it could be oven baked if you'd rather.

Ingredients:
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
12 oz jar apricot preserves
8 oz catalina dressing
1 package onion soup mix ( I would recommend only using 1/2 the package, I found it a little overpowering)

Directions:
Place chicken breasts in crock pot that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
Mix next three ingredients together and pour over chicken.  
Cook on high heat about 4  hours until chicken is done all the way through.

That looks really good. In the days when we were eating chicken I prepared all types of chicken, there was orange chicken, coconut chicken, mushroom chicken, curried chicken, stewed chicken, fried chicken - all types.

Visited from SITS. Have a great day!

I love that flowery platter that your chicken is sitting on, very pretty! I know that I would love this recipe, but my husband isn't a fan of "sweet meat". Do the apricot preserves make it sweet or is it more of a savory type bbq sauce? Thanks!

Perfect for a no fuss meal.

Yum! I make a glazed apricot chicken that has a bit of liquid smoke in it and it's delicious. I'm amazed that fruit glazed chicken dishes are so good.

I've been thinking about making an apricot chicken recipe for a while now and seeing this post has just pushed over the edge, I think I'm going to pull out my recipe this week and eat up!

never in a million years would i have suspected that apricot preserves would be so handy and so utterly delicious. i like 'em on pork, so i know i'd love 'em on chicken.
