  • Super easy chicken dinner made with apricot fruit spread and your slow cooker! In junior high, I took home economics. We put out a cookbook to make money for the class. This recipe (oven version) was in that cookbook, and it was the first meal I ever cooked for my parents. I thought it'd be fun to turn my first official cooked meal into Slow-Cooker Apricot-Glazed Chicken. If you want to make the full meal I made for my parents it included root beer floats and grasshopper pie. A great combo! I really haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love this recipe. And what is even better is it’s just 4 ingredients: chicken, Russian dressing, Cascadian Farm Apricot Spread, and dry onion soup mix. We make this at least twice a month in our family dinner rotation. We serve it over couscous (you can do rice as well) and some Green Giant Steamers green beans. If you don't have a slow cooker, no worries -- you can bake the chicken in a 9x13-inch baking dish instead at 350ºF for 35-40 minutes. Pour extra sauce over the chicken and rice or couscous, and get ready to feast!
