It’s time for another slow cooker/crockpot recipe! I’ve been making this EASY Crockpot 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 leftovers. We use it 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.
