Easy Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken

This slow cooker apricot chicken recipe is so easy it actually WANTS you to use frozen chicken from the freezer. Forget thawing and planning. Just make sure you have some apricot preserves, a good slow cooker and you are good to go.

I found one recipe similar to this easy slow cooker apricot chicken that called for lots of packaged stuff but I went natural and all the dirty dishes were licked clean before they went into the dishwasher – and we all know this is the more energy-efficient way to wash dishes.

I just love it when I find a recipe that my most picky 10 year old will eat. It seems all she wants to eat are waffles and eggs. Not terrible options, but not the best options for a growing gymnast, either!
