Apricot Glazed Chicken

Serves 4-6 people
For the "chicken", You'll need: 1 whole chicken (thawed), 2 carrots (cut in thirds), 3 large red potatoes (halved), 1/2 white onion (thinly sliced), 2 Tbsp crushed gartlic, 3 cups organic chicken stock, 2 cups water, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper.
For the Sauce/Glaze, You'll need: 4 tsp apricot spread (100% spreadable fruit), 3 tsp brown sugar, 3 Tbsp butter (melted), 1 Tbsp sweet white wine (like a muscat canelli), 2 tsp honey, 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg.
Preparation for sauce: Place all ingredients in sauce pan and stir on med-low for 10 minutes. Preparation: Place all the "chicken" ingredients in a crockpot. Cook on med-high heat for 3 hours. This will create a very moist chicken. If desired, remove skin from chicken after cooking in crockpot (for healthier meal). Place chicken and vegetables/potatoes in large baking dish. Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 20 minutes. With glaze brush, cover the chicken and vegetables with the apricot glaze. Put chicken back in oven for additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 min. Cut chicken and place vegetables and chicken on a serving platter. If you'd like to make more glaze so people can spoon more over their meal, please do so. Enjoy! Note, for safety, internal temp of thickest piece of chicken must be at 180 degrees F.
