Crockpot Apricot Chicken

Crockpot Apricot Chicken

Linda Larsen
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 we loved it!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 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.

Moist, flavorful and low in fat!, Guest Renee

I read a review that said this was on the sweet side. I am trying to cut fat calories, so I used sugar free jam and it was perfect! Very easy to make!
