Recipes similar to this one have been posted, but none just like this. This one is made in the crockpot which makes it a cinch. And only four ingredients! This recipe is a gem! It comes from ""101 More Things to Do with a Slow Cooker," by Stephanie Ashcraft.

This is a classic 1970s recipe from Kraft -Catalina. They use 1/2 c apricot preserves and 1/2 c dressing and 3T soup mix at 350 for 30-45 minutes. 1-1/2 lb chicken. It's DELISH. I just made this crockpot version with 2 lbs chicken. I use bone in thighs.
