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: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours, 10 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!
