I was surprised how easy and good this dish was. The chicken was juicy and the sauce was a little sweet. I served this over white rice. I will add this to my everyday meal recipes.

This is super easy, like it stated..and I thought it was pretty good. I did change out the vegetable oil for a healthier oil, olive oil..though canola or another would have been suitable. I will most likely make this again.

I loved this recipe. To offset the sweetness I served brown rice and broccoli & cauliflower roasted with olive oil, salt & pepper. I might also add a little salt & pepper to the chicken when I plate it next time...will definitely make again and it was really easy.

Actually this recipe was very good and easy to make. The sauce at the end makes all the difference. I would defitenly serve this to company any time. It's a more mild flavor so that's why I didn't give it a 5. I served it with white rice and green beans - great crockpot dinner.

So easy! Chicken was so tender and juicy. The apricots were a little too sweet for my husband and I but overall the flavor was pretty good. Served with brown rice and salad. Definitely will use this method to cook chicken thighs again!

Great name as it was easy, quick and delicious. My co workers loved it, served greens as side. Mine did not look like the picture as I used the dried apricots that come in a bag. Should I have used the fresh ones? Are they seasonal as I looked for them.

I loved it! So good. I don't know if I would consider it fancy enough for 5 stars, but for an everyday meal it is superb. Absolutely delicious...I wouldn't change a thing.

Has anyone made this without first browning the chicken? Wondering if you can skip this step....?

Really good! I added a clove of garlic and some mushrooms I wanted to use up and substituted white wine for broth. Cooked on stove top because I didn't have time to slow cook. Excellent. My daughter ate the mushrooms which she usually avoids and my husband ate the apricots. Should be good for leftover lunch, too!

This recipe was a great alternative to a quick chicken dinner. I used 4 breasts and 4 thighs. I was expecting it to be a little bit sweeter but I will definitely make it again.

I hope that my info will answer a few reviewers questions? Yes, apricots are seasonal, summer is theirs! No, you can NOT skip browning the chicken, that's where all the flavor in it comes from! I always brown my meat (any kind) before crock potting it, it improves the flavor so much, I'd never skip this step. I know it's messy and a wee bit time consuming, but trust me, it's so worth it. Good Luck and ENJOY! We did*!* Dried apricots can be reconstituted by soaking them a short time in a bit of hot water. Easy peasy!
