Deb Montgomery gets a lot of attention when she arrives at a church potluck. Her reputation for absolutely deee-licious casseroles is legend. So, we asked Deb to put together one of her all-time favorites for us.
-10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
-2 cups mushrooms, sliced
-1 large onion, peeled and roughly chopped
-2 carrots, diced large
-2 teaspoons dried thyme
-1 rib celery with leaves, sliced
-1 package onion soup mix
-1 can (about 11 ounces) apricot nectar
Place chicken pieces on the bottom of a crock pot and sprinkle with the onion soup mix. Add apricot nectar and top with vegetables and herbs. Cook on low setting for 6 to 7 hours or until the chicken is very tender. Serve over couscous or rice and garnish with diced apricots.
