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!"
"I could not find Apricot Preserves so I used Apricot Jelly. I would use only 1 jar next time and not cook the chicken for the required time. It was very good and will make it again"
"This is a good recipe, but makes way too much sauce for only the 24 oz (1 1/2 lbs) of chicken called for. Next time I will double the amount of chicken, which will feed us longer and make better use of the plethora of sauce.~ Theresa"
"Four to 5 hours, even on low, is way too long to cook chicken breasts, which overcook so easily. I would reduce the cooking time to 2-2 1/2 hrs. Also, the sauce did not come out looking anything like the picture. Otherwise it tasted OK, maybe you'll like it."
"Just so so."
"makes awesome leftover sweet/sour sauce i used 8 bone in thighs in my 6 qt"
"This was so simple and so good."
"Tasty, quick & easy. Whenever I serve this to new guests, someone always requests the recipe :-) Thank You, Dee!!"
"Very easy and tasty! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts and half the amount of apricot preserve and it was really good."
