Crock Pot Apricot Chicken

Can you tell I’m a little obsessed with my crock pot right now? I found this recipe on Crock Pot 365-a great crock pot recipe site.  I made a modified version of this recipe. It was really good-I thought better than the other Apricot Chicken that I made.  That one was more Asian influenced and this one wasn’t (despite some soy sauce).


  • 1 pound frozen skinless chicken meat-I use thigh since Shaun hates breasts (chicken breasts…)
  • 10 ounce jar of apricot preserves-no sugar
  • 1 tsp dried onion flakes (sorry Kath!)
  • 1 TBSP garlic aioli mustard
  • 1 TBSP Braggs Amino
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes


Place the chicken in the crock pot. Mix all the other ingredients in a bowl:


And then smother the chicken:


Set the crock pot on


And then:




hours (6-8 for frozen. 4-6 on high for defrosted).

I made brown rice and just chopped some brussel sprouts and carrots and sautéed them in a little vegan butter, S+P, and cider vinegar.

Look at how pretty it was:


Here’s the finished product in the pot:




Lucy didn’t have any-her appetite has disappeared 🙁 She has croup poor thing.  Shaun took his first bite and said “Wow this is AWESOME!” Later I asked him to rate it and he said 3 stars.  I asked how something could be awesome and then only get 3 stars.  His response? “It’s chicken.”  So many people comment on how Shaun will eat anything.  No one believes me when I tell them his particular. Do you believe me?
