This was very good. We really liked the sweetness from the preserves. Plus, 4 ingredients?! Simple enough for a tasty meal!!!

Good with thick cut boneless pork chops too. We like rice for the sauce.

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.

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.
