Apricot Chicken

I’m back!!! I thought cooking for other people would give me more time to blog, but that has just not been the case. I couldn’t believe how many emails I got asking when new recipes were coming. I am so sorry that I kept you all waiting! I am going to definitely post a new recipe at least once per week from here on out.

Now onto food! Oh how I love this chicken dish. The taste is so flavorful. Boring chicken dishes are dead in my house and should be in yours too. I always hated chicken because every time I had it was dry and so un-flavorful. I love how chicken cooks in the slow cooker. It just falls apart and is so tender. This is a fabulous recipe and I highly recommend making this for when you have people over for dinner. They will be very impressed! I always make this with Risotto in the slow cooker. They go perfectly together!


  • 11 oz jar apricot preserves
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs

Directions: Use a 4 quart slow cooker. Place the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. In a small bowl mix all the other ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Pretty darn easy right? Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high 4-6 hours.

Little Debbie’s Tip: If you are gluten-free like me you need to be very careful about which apricot preserve to use. I read every single container that my grocery offered and decided to go with Smuckers brand which was great!
