F.E.D. Recipe: Sweet & Sour Chicken (or Russian Chicken)

This will be the first of many "F.E.D." Recipes: Fast, Easy, Delicious and Everyone is FED! We all know we are usually in a hurry, but that doesn't mean we want our families eating things that aren't nutritious and delicious. Here is a family favorite that's been handed down on my mother's side that everyone loves:

Sweet & Sour Chicken (Russian Chicken)
1 pkg. Lipton Onion Dry Soup Mix
8 oz. Apricot Preserves(or Apricot/Pineapple--it adds extra flavor) 
1 8 oz. Russian Dressing
4-6 Chicken Breasts (or tenders, etc.)--I put mine in frozen.  (You can use more chicken as long as the sauce covers it for cooking--and there is some left over to sweeten your rice)!

Directions: Combine Soup Mix, Preserves and Dressing and mix in a bowl. Pour over chicken in a crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through but still tender.

Pour chicken and some (or a lot) of juice/dressing over rice (we enjoy long grain or brown rice)! Viola! Delicious!
