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! 🙂
