Apricot Glazed Chicken


  • 1 cup good-quality chunky apricot preserves
  • 3/4 cup bottled Russian dressing
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 12 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, trimmed of fat (about 3 1/2 to 4 pounds)


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the apricot preserves, dressing, and dry soup mix until well blended.
  2. Arrange 3 of the chicken breast halves in the bottom of a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker.
  3. Spoon a fourth of the apricot mixture on top.
  4. Add 3 more layers of chicken with the apricot mixture in between and on top.
  5. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.
  6. Reduce the heat setting to LOW and continue cooking, covered, 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the chicken is tender and white throughout; do not overcook or the chicken will toughen.
  7. Serve the sauce over the chicken.
