Slow Cooker Spicy Apricot BBQ Chicken




Apricot chicken has to be one of my favorite slow cooker meals. I absolutely love it. My plan was to make that for dinner tonight until I realized I didn't have all of the ingredients. I then decided to make a BBQ Apricot version of it instead. I served it over rice but it would be great as a sandwich or served with potatoes. I think this is going to be one of our new favorites!
