Sweet and Spicy Chicken

I've made this recipe a few times, and it's one of Chris' favorites. It's easy, yummy, and only 6 Weight Watcher Points.

Sweet and Spicy Chicken
1 package taco seasoning mix
8 oz apricot jam
12 oz chunky salsa
1 1/2 lbs chicken pieces

Arrange chicken pieces in the bottom of a Crock Pot. Mix other ingredients well and pour over chicken. Cook 5-6 hours on high.

I use chicken thighs instead of chicken pieces. The sauce cooks down and is so rich and tasty!

I usually freeze a second batch when I make this. Just place all ingredients into a one gallon freezer bag, and lay flat in the freezer. Take the bag out of the freezer and refrigerate the night before. Empty the contents right into your Crock Pot and cook as above.
