  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pint overcooked cherry jam
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  • Place all ingredients in a slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through.
