Good recipe. I did not use the crock pot though, just did it on the stove because I'm kind of fussy about chicken. The mix of sweet and spicy was really nice. I added some hot sauce to give it a bit more heat. Served with black beans and rice it made for a really nice meal

We loved this! Using my crock-pot, I cooked (2) right-from-the-freezer, skinless, bone-in chicken breasts on low for 6 hours. Since I used an all-fruit apricot jam, I squeezed in a bit of honey to give the sauce a cling-factor. The chicken was fall-apart tender and the salsa and taco seasoning ( I used recipe #256141 ) the perfect counterpoint to the sweetness of the sauce. This will be an oft repeated dish for this lazy cook. Thanks for posting!
