~This was originally published in September of last year, however, I am dusting it off and re-publishing it again to add to the Slow Cooker Mondays feature on the blog. I have also added a few additions to the original recipe.~
This recipe for Russian Apricot Chicken and it is so flippin yummy. Y'all are going to be shocked when you hear how many ingredients it has. It only requires...hold on to your hats....4 ingredients! Can you believe that?! To top it off, it also tastes wonderful!
It has just the right hint of tanginess mixed in with sweetness. And an added bonus, it cooks in the slow cooker!! Just mix the ingredients in a bowl, pour it over the chicken in the slow cooker, and let it cook all day. It's quick, easy, and yummy! Can't get any better then that folks :) Try it and see for yourself ;)
Slow Cooker Russian Apricot Chicken
(makes 4-6 chicken breasts)
1 (12 oz.) jar of apricot preserves
1 bottle of Russian salad dressing
1 to 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 onion, chopped
1. Place chicken breasts inside slow cooker.
2. In a bowl, mix half the jar of apricot preserves with half the bottle of Russian salad dressing. Stir in the chopped onions. Makes sure it's mixed well.
3. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
4. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes.
**Libby's Notes: You can add a little more preserves or salad dressing if you feel it won't be enough to cover the chicken. We ended up using all of ours and it came out wonderful.
