6 hrs 5 mins
1kg of chicken drumsticks (you can substitute for any cut of chicken - on bone or fillets - reduce time for fillets)
1 x 40g pkt dry french onion soup mix
1 diced onion
1 x 425ml tin of apricot nectar
1-2 tsp curry powder
1Lay chicken and diced onion in slow cooker bowl.
3Combine soup mix, curry powder and apricot nectar.
5Pour over chicken and cook on low for 6hrs approx.
8This recipe can be changed to mango curry chicken simply by swapping the apricot nectar for mango nectar

I like to add a handful of dried apricots to increase the apricot flavour.

This is a firm favourite in our household. I do like to coat the chicken in seasoned flour and sear first before putting in slow cooker. We had it on Tuesday this week, then with the leftovers, for the following night, after reheating, I shredded the chicken and added cooked pasta.

I didn’t really love this 😳 BUT I will say, to my shock, my 2 little ones ate it all up without a complaint which pretty much never happens so it was a win in that regard!

I made this recipe s couple of days ago and loved it. Even the fussy eaters in the house thought it was great. I add cooked rice for the last 30 mins which soaked up some of the liquid and was a great side. Yum!!!

Yep sure will “)

Will 4 hours on low be enough for 1.5kg of roughly chopped breast?

I made it with pineapple juice as that was what I had in the house. I’ve had it with the apricot nector before as well and both were delicious! Such an easy dinner

For breast fillet they would be done in around 3hrs 🙂
May 13, 2020
how long would you cook in the slow cooker if you use chicken breast fillets…..4hrs?

This was the first time making this with the curry powder, such a simple recipe and so yummy, it was a big hit in this house hold and will certainly be making it again.

If you want a thicker sauce. Combine the French onion and nectar and heat up first like you are making soup, either in a sauce pan or slow cooker if it can do the temp. Once it thickens throw everything in. I find if you don’t it doesn’t thicken up. I also double both nectar and soup as we love sauce.

We like mashed potato and assorted side veg like peas, carrot and corn cobs

What would you have as a side dish.

Just wondering what kind of curry powder was used?
November 11, 2018
Have not long finished this for dinner tonight. The chicken was so tender juicy and succelent. I used to cook this in the oven but never again.
July 27, 2018
I added Carrots and Peas and was delish.
February 21, 2018
I used beef sausage was just as nice

Giving the mango version a stab tonight…… Used chicken lovely legs, and had to sub spring veg soup as had no french onion, so added a diced carrot and some celery, plus some garlic and onion powder. Fingers crossed!! I’ll keep you posted 🙂
January 4, 2017
I’d give it a go 🙂
January 3, 2017
Would this work for a whole chicken to?
November 7, 2016
Depending on how many/how thick etc if they are whole I would reduce down to closer to 4hrs or a bit less 🙂
How long would you cook for, using chicken breast pleases?

I love this recipe, have been cooking it for years when I had family at home loved by all (even the cat loved it, minus the onion ) only other thing I added was a tin of apricot halves.
March 9, 2016
I have never used curry powder in apricot chicken before and found the flavour so much nicer 🙂
