This is a quick-to-prepare and easy recipe my husband acquired from a friend. We've served it over rice and over fresh steamed vegetables. The sauce is unexpectedly tasty. Serve over rice.

I think the chicken breast are probably frozen in the original recipe. As an experienced slow cooker cook I know they would be over-done after 8-10 hours if they are thawed beforehand. Just use frozen chicken or decrease the time to 4-5 hours for pre-thawed chicken. Read More

This was just the change in my chicken recipes that I was looking for! I used this as a base recipe for Asian chicken dinner. I used 4 fresh chicken breast, 12oz of apricot preserves, 10oz of Russian dressing, 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce, and splash of ginger. I put it in the crock pot for 6 hours on low, stirring every 2 hours. served with rice and Asian medley vegetables. It was SO GOOD! thank you for sharing your recipe. Read More

My family loves this recipe and you can't beat how you get so much flavor complexity from so few ingredients. There were crunchy pieces from the onion soup mix so I am going to sub fresh onions and seasoning next batch. Read More

I must say this was the easiest crock pot recipe I have ever made! I did not have apricot preserves so I used peach I didn't have Russian dressing so I used French and I always use boneless skinless chicken thighs. After reading the reviews I also cooked for 3.5 hours and it came out perfect. I served over egg noodles (yum!!)). Both my husband and I enjoyed this. Read More
