SWEET + TANGY CROCKPOT CHICKEN

This is one my mom used to make when I was younger and I always loved it, but haven't had in well over 20 years. It dawned on me the other day while perusing the isles at Publix. I was searching for a salad dressing and my eyes glanced over Russian Dressing and all those delicious memories came rushing right back. I quick called her up for the recipe. Yep, that was it, and simpler than I thought. As a matter of fact, It's THREE ingredients. Now, because my mom had more time back then than I do these days. {She'll probably beg to differ, and rightfully so. She raised 4 kids, I've got two. But who's complaining. Well, me most days. I'm a workin' momma now} She marinated and baked her chicken, which you can do too. But, who LOVES a crockpot? THIS GIRL! So I tweaked it a little and here she is. It's like if BBQ and Chinese food had a baby.  


THE RECIPE 

  1. In a bowl mix soup packet + dressing and preserves together. 
  2. Pour 1/2 the mixture in the bottom of your crockpot.
  3. Place chicken breast in crockpot. In a single layer. 
  4. Pour remaining mixture on top.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
  6. Remove lid and shred with fork. 

*serves 4-6

I served it over rice. It would even be yummy on slider buns. I thought too, what about adding sliced green peppers the last hour of cooking? Have fun with it! My crew loved it, kids too.
