What do you serve with slow cooker apricot chicken?

Plus, it is so easy once I learned how to freeze rice. I love to grab the rice from the freezer in the morning and when we come home it is all ready to reheat and serve.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

  1. You forgot to mention the soy sauce when adding ingredients. Can’t wait to make this. Looks so good!

  2. Pat – Thanks for letting us know. I corrected the post. The soy sauce is mixed in with the other ingredients to make the sauce for this recipe. Thank you again!

  3. Can you put the chicken in crockpot frozen, or does it need to be thawed?

  4. Hey there, thanks so much for this recipe! I wonder, though… I’d the 20 minutes for the pressure cooker/Instant Pot a typo? Boneless, skinless chicken usually takes no more than 5 minutes, so I’m wondering what I’m missing… thank you!

  5. I haven’t tried that yet but I think it would work great in this recipe! Let us know how it turns out!

  6. I made this for my family tonight and even the four year old ate it up! I cut the recipe on half and did it in the ninja foodi on slow cook and it was amazing. Definitely worth the extra step of the broil with sauce
