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.



Serving Size: 4-6


  • 1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 16 oz bottle of Wish-Bone Russian Salad Dressing
  • 1 cup Smucker’s Apricot preserves
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast


  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.
  7. 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.

This was great!! So easy. I did have to sub 1000 Island dressing as Target didn’t have Russian. Husband agreed would be good on buns. He didn’t even know you had said that. Thanks for always sharing recipes.

It’s in the crockpot now!! Can’t wait to try!


MADE IT LAST NIGHT! Everybody loved it and there was so much that when unexpected guests popped in, I could actually feed them a home-cooked meal instead of ordering pizza! Win!

Made this last night. So good! I served it as sliders on Hawaiian Rolls. Today for lunch, I had it over rice. Past the recipe along to co-workers in the office. Eating the leftovers tonight. 😋 Thanks for sharing Landyn!
