  • Transfer chicken to a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Add lentils and onion to slow cooker. Pour chicken broth and the water over all.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting after 7 to 8 hours. Add squash and apricots to slow cooker. Cover and cook about 15 minutes more or just until squash is tender. If desired, garnish individual servings with sliced green onion.

Tips

Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
