Clarks Condensed isn’t the first blog I’ve written. Right before I graduated from high school, I started “Cooking with Katie”. While looking at the blog design makes me laugh, and the quality of the pictures is quite horrible, I had quite a few yummy recipes on there. One of those was apricot chicken.
During my senior year, I pretty much made dinner every night for my family, and apricot chicken is the first meal I remember making. After that, it was probably my favorite meal, and when I left for college, I made it quite often. In fact, it was the first meal I made for Forrest. For some reason, for awhile, he thought it was the only meal I knew how to make. Such a funny boy.
I feel like it’s such a homey, delicious, and easy meal, and it’s perfect for anyone who’s busy, but still want a delicious meal. It remains one of my favorite meals.
While I usually make apricot chicken in the oven, I thought it could be easily made in the crock pot — and I was right! It’s just four ingredients, a couple of hours, and viola — perfectly cooked, apricot chicken.
I don’t usually shred my apricot chicken from the oven, but I feel like cooking it in the crock pot made it so easily shreddable, and it would be perfect over rice or as a wrap filling!
I’ve included the instructions below for both the stove version and the crock pot version. I hope that you’ll all enjoy it, too.
