I made this for dinner. I cooked the chicken on top of the stove with some onion, celery, garlic, seasoning salt and a little water. When the chicken was done and the water was cooked out, I added the sauce over the top. I allowed the salsa mixture to simmer with the chicken for a few minutes to infuse the flavor. I placed the chicken into a serving bowl, melted some provolone cheese on top of the chicken, and then topped the serving bowl with the salsa mixture. It was a tasty new dish!
I have made this twice. The first time I use the crockpot and followed the recipe exactly. The second time I just tried the chicken in a little oil and then drained and added the sauce (use about 1/8c more preserves)and it was better than the crock pot and quicker.
This is so good. It's now a staple at our house.
Good, unique flavor and extremely easy to make. Smelled great.
Wonderful recipe! I have made it several tiimes(tripled recipe) I use medium salsa and chicken tenders. Our company liked the recipe too. Today I used Uncle Ben's wild rice and it tasted good that way too.
