Slow cooker Apricot Chicken is the best choice for dinner. It’s naturally gluten free too.
At least when it comes to eating out that is. Now, don’t get me wrong we eat out from time to time; however, I have a very hard time justifying spending nearly $20 on 2 meals when I can make a meal feed 4-6 for less than $5-10.
See my point?
I’m with the rest of you though and have nights where I am way too busy or tired to make dinner. I typically know in advance if there is just no way that dinner will be done. So, on those nights, I pull out my handy slow cooker!
This particular day I wanted to make this Apricot Chicken from Cooking Light. The original recipe is grilled, but I knew that this particular day there would be no time for grilling.
So, what did I do?
I tossed it all in the slow cooker and with little to no work on my part…dinner was done at 5:00!
It was, tender, juicy and falling off the bone. Then, it had the subtle hints of apricot. Delicious.
