Crockpot Apricot Chicken

A friend made this for all of us last summer.  I was a little unsure about it because of the apricot jam in it.  But I loved it!!  It gives the perfect balance of flavor between the apricot jam and russian salad dressing.  And it is so easy!  A miracle happened tonight at dinner.  My 4 year old ate the chicken!!  We were cheering and clapping as if we had just won the lottery.  He LOVED it!  And if he loved it I know everyone will love it!  I was also glad to know that not all of my dinners are horrible according to him!  🙂

I had to document in the history books that my picky eater actually ate!

    Do you use boneless chicken breasts or bone in?

    Sounds yummy, but think I will try with peach instead of apricot preserves. Should work as well, yes? Thank you for sharing this easy recipe.
