Crocktober Link Up: Hawaiian Chicken

I am sharing one of my all time favorite recipes.  My mom made this chicken while I was growing up, and it turned into being one of my favorites and most requested.  In fact, this exact chicken dish is what I requested as my first meal home from college all the way back in November of 1999.  After weeks and weeks of nasty Henderson dining hall food mixed in with trips to Taco Bell and Chickfila, this chicken never tasted so good.

When my mom makes this, she bakes it in the oven.  However, now that I am making it. This chicken is one of my crockpot rotations.  Either way you make it- oven or crockpot- you will love it!!!

3 to 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 oz. Russian dressing
1 packet of onion soup mix
3 T. apricot preserves
1 medium onion chopped

Place crockpot liner in crockpot.  Layer your thawed chicken breasts and top with chopped onion.  In a separate bowl, mix dressing, onion soup mix, and preserves.  Pour mixture over chicken and onion.  Cook on High for 2 to 3 hours or on Low for 4 to 5 hours.

I always serve this over brown rice.  My mom always made this delicious skillet rice that had almonds and green onions in it.  Whether you do plain or fancy rice, you will love this chicken and it's sauce!!! 

As you can see, I dug into my chicken before I remembered to take a picture!!!
