Sweet Salsa Chicken

This is a great throw in the crock pot meal.  It is so easy and taste great.  My kids do not like apricot jam but love this recipe.  I always use the apricot/pineapple jam.

Sweet Salsa Chicken
1 package taco seasoning mix
18 oz. jar apricot or apricot/pineapple jam
1 pint (2 cups) salsa
2-3 lbs chicken pieces ( I use chicken breast or tenders and guesstimate the amount.)
Place chicken in the bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle with the taco seasoning.

Pour salsa over the top.

Add the jam.

Cook on low until chicken is done. (4-6 hours).  Stir once or twice during cooking.  Serve over rice. 

*This time I used 12 chicken tenders and should of used more.  There was too much sauce and not enough chicken.

*You can also bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn chicken to coat.
*This is also a good freezer meal. Dump all ingredient into a freezer bag and freeze.

  1. I cube up the chicken, saute it and then add the rest and simmer 15 minutes and it makes a wonderful quick meal served with rice. It's really yummy. I will have to try it in the crockpot next time!!

  2. This looks very intersting. I'll have to give it a try. I love the old Russian Chicken recipe that uses apricot jam...I'm sure we'll love this too. Thanks for posting :)
