Wondering what to make for dinner? Check out my family’s favorite easy crock pot recipes for great dinner ideas!
I’m usually a pretty organized, on-the-ball person. So you can imagine when I went to make Pioneer Woman’s peach whiskey chicken recipe and I realized that I had purchased pork chops not chicken and apricot preserves not peach. And I also didn’t have any whiskey, although I never do so that didn’t surprise me.
I decided to create my own crock pot recipe, apricot pork chops. While I prefer my BBQ pork roast in the crock pot, my kids loved this version so it will stay on the menu. We served over rice and I thought it would taste great with a side of pineapple… but I didn’t have any.
If you make this recipe I recommend grabbing some pineapple to go with it. Fresh pineapple is great, but honestly I love the canned stuff! I grew up eating it and I think it is delicious.
