Slow Cooker Russian Chicken

Usually you’d expect citrus to be the featured fruit in a chicken dish, but we love a good Russian Chicken dish with apricots or peaches! This slow cooker version features fresh peaches and peach jam for a sweet, summery take on chicken and rice.

  • Servings: 4
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4 hours


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, or a combination
  • 1 cup Russian dressing
  • 1½ cups sliced peeled peaches, fresh or frozen (about 6 ounces)
  • ½ cup peach jam
  • Cooked white or brown rice, for serving
  • Parsley, for garnish


1. Coat a 6-quart slow cooker insert with cooking spray.
2. Cut the chicken into 1½-inch-wide strips and place them in the slow cooker in a single layer.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the Russian dressing, peaches, and peach jam, and toss to mix; pour over the chicken in the slow cooker. Cover and cook for 4 hours on Low.
4. Serve over the rice. Garnish with parsley.
