Crockpot Apricot Chicken

It’s time for another slow cooker/crockpot recipe!  I’ve been making this EASY Apricot Chicken for a few years.  It’s SO simple and only takes 3 ingredients, other than the chicken. I don’t even remember who gave me this recipe, but we love it!  Making a large batch of Apricot Chicken in the crockpot  is a great way to have it on hand for salads, pasta dishes or quick left overs. We use for a quick bento bowl.  We’ll usually add a handful of veggies and make it a one bowl meal. I could eat every meal from a bowl.

Apricot Chicken

There is nothing better than having dinner ready for you with a delicious slow cooker meal! That bewitching hour when it’s time to make dinner is the worst! Thank God for my slow cooker, otherwise, I’m not sure how often my family would get a hot cooked meal.
