"The theory is you dump this in a bag and freeze to pull out later. There are many variations which I will post separately but it's amazingly easy to make these up and have a different "dump" chicken every week!"

"Loved this - made it in the crock pot also, cooked about 7 hours on low. I used Pace mild salsa. We made it for a big group of us on vacation - it was so easy because I just brought it frozen in the bag, let it defrost on the way to our destination, stuck it in the crock pot in the morning. Then we played around town all day and it was ready when we got home. I served it over rice and we had very positive reviews from the four adults on the trip (including me)!"
"I can't belive I didn't rate this one yet! I have this in my monthly rotation. It is a must have according to the hubby! I make this using breast meat and rice. Easy,Peasy, Lemon,Squeezy recipe!
I make it exactly as stated in the directions. Thanks Tish, Another winner. I also make your Chicken Packets every month as well. ;)"
"10/11/09 Amazingly delicious and so easy to make. This simple recipe exceeded my expectations. Really good over rice. Thanks for posting a recipe that's sure to be made often in our home! 11/24/09 Made this for the second time and my husband, who loved it the first time, RAVED about it even more this time. He asked where I got the recipe and when I said "Zaar" he said, "Well, I would definitely give this a really good rating!" So, here's a SIX star rating from my husband!!"
"This was really good. We made it as is with the exception of using breasts and cooking into a slow cooker. We made rice and canned low-sodium black beans to serve with dinner. We had butternut squash - diced it up, roasted it and served it with. It all went so well together... it seems like an odd combo but it really did go well. Thanks for the new addition to our rotation :)"
"what a successful dinner tonight was, all because of this winning recipe! I used chicken breasts pounded out, and found a SFapricot jam. Delicious! Hubby was happy, and even asked if there was enough for his lunch tomorrow!
Thank you Tish, this made a moist, flavorful chicken dinner!"
"Very good! I have had this one in my cookbook for a long time, just never getting around to buying the apricot jam, finally picked some up and made this. We all enjoyed it, so it will go in my regular rotation! Thanks for another great recipe!"
"This was great. I really really liked it. The flavor was wonderful and mine was a bit spicy because I used spicy salsa. The heat of the salsa matched well with the sweetness of the jam. I would definitely make again. As noted by another reviewer, this recipe makes a lot of sauce so more chicken can be added than the recipe calls for."
"This is absolutely one of my top 3 chicken recipes!!! I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! I used marmalade instead of jam, I like the pieces of fruit in it. I also felt I could've added a few more pieces of chicken in the pan..I used legs only. Thanks so much for sharing! By the way...I think it deserves 10 stars!!!!"
"Wonderful recipe. I used chicken breasts and cooked them on the stove top. It tasted a bit like sweet and sour chicken with a mexican flair. Thank you."
"So easy and quick to prepare. Everyone including chicken haters LOVED it!"
"I made this in the crockpot as suggested by other reviewers. It made a lot of yummy sauce which I served over rice. It was easy and flavorful!"
"Very tasty as written. Tried this recipe using salmon instead of chicken. Also excellant."
"Excellent! Dumped it all in the crockpot & headed to church. Came home & was disappointed that the aroma didn't meet us at the door. DUH! It helps to plug in the crockpot. I used 1 1/2 lbs chicken tenderloins, medium salsa and a homemade taco seasoning mixture. It was really spicy but I think that was due to the taco seasoning. Served over penne pasta and shredded the chicken on our plates."
"A WINNER! Because DH is a diabetic I used Smuckers Sugar Free Apricot Preserves. I also cooked the boneless skinless chicken at 300 degrees for 1 hour. When ready I topped it with Krafts Four Cheese Mexican Cheese, placed it back into the oven to melt for a few minutes. I served sour cream on the side. You could also fix a guacamole too. The next time I am going to make the corn recipe # 161110 for a side dish. THANKS TISH FOR SHARING!!"
"Wonderful. I let it all marinate in the ziploc bag overnight, then put it in the crock pot to cook on low for 6-7 hours. Served over minute rice and when we ran out of rice Al resorted to the leftover stovetop stuffing and declared it delicious as well."
"Tish, I now live in Costa Rica, formally from Texas. Lots of luck finding Apricot anything. I substitued sweet and sour sauce (home made) and fresh gound garlic the results were terffic! Thank you so much for your wonderful tip. I have bagged up 10 pounds for my Halloween party."
"I give this five stars because it tastes great and couldn't be easier to make! FOUR INGREDIENTS!! I used 16 oz. jar Pace Medium Chunky Salsa, 12. oz jar Simply Fruit Apricot Spread, Taco Seasoning, and 1.7 lbs chicken breast. This turned out great and had a lot of sauce. I used the sauce as flavoring for brown rice (pre-cooked) and made a Spanish-style rice. YUM! Highly recommend and will definitely make again."
"Hubby said this was a keeper. I too did it in a crock pot. It came out fork tender. Unlike other crock pot recipes, the chicken was not mushy tasting. I did add a water/cornstarch mixture to the salsa in the crock pot to make it thicker. I also sautéed some onions in a pan just to add even more texture. Just add some Spanish rice and you have a great dinner."
"great tasting recipe! I think it would also taste great cooked in a crockpot which is what I will do next time. Also for half of it we put some shredded cheese on top and put it in the oven till the cheese was melted. Added a really good flavor."
"We all liked this one, and the fact that it is so SIMPLE makes it even better in my book! I will say that if you use a mild salsa like we did (one of the corn and black bean salsas) that it was a little sweet so next time when we use a mild one we'll cut back on the jam just a little bit. Excellent make ahead freezer meal, but really, it's so easy it doesn't save a lot of time. It's nice knowing it's sitting in the freezer waiting to be cooked though. :)"
