Crock Pot Apricot Chicken


I found a recipe over at A Year of CrockPotting, and since I needed a crock pot meal for tonight I thought I’d give it a try. I added more of the minced onion, soy sauce, and ginger than the original recipe called for, because when I tasted the sauce with the original amounts, I felt the sauce needed more of a punch…and boy am I glad I did, because it was delicious!  Both kiddos actually ate all of their dinner and our oldest had seconds! I’d serve this dish to company…that’s saying something…especially coming from the crock pot! It’s a keeper!

  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 11 oz. jar of apricot preserves
  • 2 tsp. dried minced onion
  • 1 TBSP Dijon mustard
  • 2TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (may use less, more, or omit)
  • Cooking spray


  1. Spray the crock pot with cooking spray; then add the chicken.
  2. Combine the preserves through the crushed red pepper in a bowl, and mix to incorporate. Pour sauce over chicken.
  3. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours.
