Reviews for Saucy Apricot Chicken
"Had this for the first time tonight for dinner. It is so easy to make, and my husband and I really enjoyed the fruity flavor. White wine went really well with it. Will be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"have been making this for a long time, Yummy, and easy."
"We really enjoyed this dish. As there are only 2 at home to cook for, I did make a few adjustments but this recipe always turns out beautifully if you don't overcook. Thank you for a great recipe!"
"I also added russian dressing and only 1 jar of apricot. I cooked on low for 6-7 hrs and then served over whole grain brown rice. MMmmmmm!"
"I actually used one jar of apricot jelly, then, 1 bottle of Russian dressing, and the onion soup mix and chicken-- I cooked it for 6 hours in the slow cooker, because I used very large boneless skinless chicken breasts, and served it over jasmine rice-- it was great!"
