I don’t know the official name for this. My friend gave me the recipe after she served it to us in her home, but it came with no name. So, I took the liberty to name it Apricot and French Dressing Crock Pot Chicken. After reviewing the recipe, let me know what you think of the name. Do you have a better idea? Is this one just too long and makes you tongue tied? I’m open for suggestions. 🙂
You will love this chicken. It’s always nice to find a good slow cooker recipe where you can dump and forget! And, it’s only FOUR ingredients! It’s pretty versatile, too, so you can adjust the temperature and time to fit your needs. I live so close to work, that I was able to come home on my lunch break and throw this in the crockpot and cooked on high for 3 hours. My friend used six frozen chicken breasts and cooked it on high for 4 hours then low for 2 hours. The recipe below reflects my version with fresh chicken.
Either way, the chicken turns out very tender and flavorful. As you hopefully can tell from the photo, it falls right apart. Serve it over rice and maybe a side of broccoli. The sauce is delicious, so don’t skimp out on the ingredients! You’ll want to drink it right up!
- 4 fresh or frozen boneless chicken breasts
- 1 cup french dressing
- 1 cup apricot jelly/jam/preserves
- 1 package onion soup mix
- salt and pepper to taste
Dump all in the crock pot and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. If using frozen chicken, cook on high for 4 hours, then low for 2 hours. Serve over rice with the sauce.
