This is an outstanding recipe. I have made it for years. Instead of French dressing, I use Russian. Also, I use the whole amount of Russian dressing that is in a small bottle. Great with parsley potatoes. A sure keeper in your recipe box.

The flavours in this chicken dish are divine. I used 3 chicken breasts and cooked on low for 3 1/2 hours. Just the right amount of tasty sauce. Thaks for posting. =)

Also works with apricot sauce from Trader Joes! I use it with a bit of honey and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon.

REALLY good! I used FROZEN boneless/skinless breasts and chicken remained moist and sauce was perfect. My 3 year old loved it. I served with a brown/wild rice, broccoli and romaine lettuce salad. A wonderful meal!

WOW!! Lennie this recipe is wonderful. The chicken was very moist and the sauce was so delicious. I also substituted Russian dressing for the French, I thought the flavor was great. This recipe couldn't be easier to make. Everyone in my family agrees that this one's a keeper. Thanks!!!

Lenny-this was great. Very moist and yummy. I used 2 cut up chickens and doubled the sauce recipe. Served it with rice and there wasn't a drop left over. Since I work fulltime, I use my crockpot several times a week. My kids know that when they see the crock on the counter that they will be having a great dinner. This is on their request list from now on. Chava

I'm making this recipe for the 2nd time (in the oven, as I write this), and it's delicious. I followed the sauce ingredients as written. The only changes I made: I used 4 large chicken thighs, (about 1 lb) and baked it in the oven at 350, for 55 min. That's also the method I used last time, cause it's cold and rainy outside. I like extra sauce, so even though chicken weight was reduced, kept the sauce the same. Will serve over rice. Yummy.

My version from the 70's uses Wishbone Russian Dressing, jam and soup. Absolutely delicious!! Try it. I'm going to try this. I've never used French dressing.

This is a great dish. I have made it a couple of times now, and everyone loves it. I love it because my 18 month old twins and my husband all like it - a rare occurance in our house! I've even served it to company who asked for the recipe. Thanks for the great recipe.
