MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 26, 2014

Delicious! I browned the chicken in some butter before placing it in the crock pot, but other than that I would not change a thing.

Horrible! I'm sorry to say. Very disappointed. Ingredients sounded like a flavorful dish, but I took one taste and the sauce was not good. Lost $$ as well since the apricots and cranberries cost a lot. First dud from taste of home.

The apricots and cranberries went quite well with the chicken! The dish wasn't TOO fruity, but the unique flavors made the dish a pleasant delight.

Served it to company and they enjoyed it as much as I did...I thought it would have more of a citrus taste, but still very good...

The combination of flavors was strange. Did not taste very good. I definitely would not make it again.
