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!

Slow Cooker Spicy Apricot BBQ Chicken
Serves 4
Cal 170, Carbs 10.5, Fat 3.5, Protein 24.2

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup apricot preserves (I used low sugar)
1 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. spicy Dijon mustard
1 tsp. brown sugar (I used Splenda Brown Sugar)
1 tsp. siracha sauce
2 tbsp. liquid smoke (optional but I love the flavor)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Place chicken in slow cooker. Sprinkle with garlic powder and liquid smoke. 

Meanwhile whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour over chicken. 

Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Serve over rice or potatoes. Enjoy!
