Crock pot recipe review: Saucy Apricot Chicken

This has got to be the Easiest. Recipe. Ever.
One 6 pound package of frozen chicken
One jar of apricot, (I used peach) jam
One package of onion soup mix, Knorr or Lipton, (I actually used a Tastefully Simple package of Onion, Onion mix from my friend Denise.)

Dump the chicken in the crock pot, shake the soup mix over it all evenly, and warm up the jam and pour over the mixture.  Cook on low 4-5 hours. 

I'm turning mine on high for an hour or so and then turning it down because my chicken is frozen.

I'll announce the verdict later....

I was curious to find that the jam did not stay gelatinous.  It completely liquefied as it cooked in, under and through the chicken.
I lifted the chicken out carefully and poured the remaining sauce into a pan and thickened it with about 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch.  I poured just a bit of it over the chicken to glaze it.
The verdict:
Bear said nothing, which is typical.  Gadget boy loved it, true to form. (He won't complain about any meal. He knows better.) Miss Busy and Chels at it up and asked for seconds. Ace devoured his, as did Boo.  Robby didn't eat it, well because the snack of a PB&J still lingered in his tummy.

We served this with frozen peas, canned corn and saffron rice.
