  • 1.5- 2 lbs. bone skin-less chicken thighs
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 cup Catalina salad dressing
  • 1 oz. packet Lipton onion soup mix
  • tsp. black pepper
  • 2 pinches red pepper flakes optional

Slow Cooker Size:

  • 4 quart or larger


  • Place the chicken in to the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the apricot preserves, Catalina dressing, onion soup mix, pepper and pepper flakes. Stir the sauce ingredients together over the chicken.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
  • I like to de-grease the sauce before serving. I do this by taking a paper towel and laying it flat over the sauce. I pull up the paper towel after a few seconds and all the grease sticks to the paper towel. Easy peasy.
  • Serve with rice.
  • Enjoy!
