Apricot Lemon Chicken

2 lbs of boneless breast of chicken
1 lemon, quartered
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 cup coarsely chopped dried apricots
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp thyme (or 3-4 four sprigs fresh thyme, if available)

Pull chicken breasts apart and place them in the bottom of a 4 1/2 quart (or similar) slow cooker. Squeeze the quartered lemons over the chicken meat, and drop the squeezed lemon quarters in the pot. Pour orange juice over the chicken. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed. Cook on high for 4 hours. Serves 6.
