This easy, yet delectable crockpot chicken recipe is the brainchild of my 12 year old who always requests my Sweet-n-Spicy BBQ Chicken anytime I ask, “what should be on next week’s meal plan?” When I told him I was getting ready to post some of our favorite crockpot recipes, he asked if I would create a new one by finding a way to make his favorite chicken in the crockpot. Brilliant idea! Yet again, proving that kids belong in the kitchen!
What’s equally brilliant is this recipe allows you to prep the ingredients ahead of time and place them into the freezer. Then when you know you’re going to have one of those days where there’s just no time to cook, you can simply toss the frozen ingredients right into the crockpot and enjoy a super-easy and delicious home-cooked healthy meal! (See note in recipe below for details.)
P.S. Whenever I make this, my boys can hardly stop themselves from shoveling it in – LOL! I have to admit this recipe is a new favorite of mine too and I’m not usually one for dinners on the sweet side. But this dish has a nice spicy flavor that balances out the sweetness of the apricot. And the flavorful sauce is especially delicious over rice and steamed veggies. Enjoy!
