BBQ Chicken

I love my crockpot! There is really nothing better than making dinner right after having breakfast and not having to worry about it for the rest of the day. Or instead of having to make a entire meal, just making a couple sides. It reduces my stress factor all day long in substantial amounts. Here is a super quick and easy recipe that leaves the chicken moist and tender. My youngest is our little carnivore and he approves wholeheartedly!
This recipe does not make a real thick BBQ sauce but infuses the chicken with the flavor. If you want a real saucy chicken, just add some more of that bottle of sauce on top after it's done cooking and give it some time to heat up. 

2 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken drumsticks, skinned if desired
1 c bottled BBQ sauce
1/3 c apricot preserves
2t yellow mustard (I use spicy mustard and it turns out fine)

Place chicken in a 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker. In a separate bowl mix together remaining ingredients. Pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
