Serve with rice, brown rice or quinoa – made in your rice cooker.  For extra points, cook some fresh or frozen green beans or broccoli in the steamer basket of your rice cooker … creating a complete and easy meal!


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs

2/3 cup healthy apricot jam (or apricot/pineapple)

1 Tbsp. soy sauce (low sodium)

1 Tbsp. fresh minced garlic


Lightly spray your crock pot with cooking spray, then place your chicken in the crock pot.  Stir together the jam, soy sauce and garlic, and pour over chicken.

Set your crock pot to LOW cook for 6-8 hours.  (If you don’t start the recipe until 12 or 1:00 PM, then cook it on HIGH.)
