The television seems filled with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi this year. I am not a big fan of watching but I have tuned in a few times this year which is unusual for me. As I was doing the menu planning this week I came across Russian Chicken. It has been a long time since I have had Russian Chicken and since the Winter Olympics are in Russia this year I thought it would be an appropriate dish to make this week.
The dish has chopped onions in it and my family doesn’t like onions, at all. So I sliced the onions in big slices so the onions can be easily picked out for the picky eaters. If your family likes onions then chop them.
Slow Cooker Russian Chicken
4-6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 small onion, chopped (or sliced)
1/2 cup chunky apricot preserves
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used Hellmann’s mayonnaise)
1/3 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Place chicken in slow cooker. Spread chopped or sliced onion on top. Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, and red wine vinegar in a small bowl. Stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the apricot preserves to the mayonnaise mixture. Stir to combine and pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on Low for 3 or 4 hours. Serve over rice.
