That applesauce I made yesterday. Well, I made it because I needed applesauce for dinner. This is one of the great throw everything in a crock pot and press start. I did this at lunch time and when I was home for dinner I had a lovely chicken dish to serve. Add a few simple sides and you have a great home-cooked meal in the middle of the week.
From A Year of Slow Cooking
4 chicken breast, boneless and skinless
1 1/2 cups of applesauce*
1 yellow onion, chopped finely
1 T apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
*I used homemade cinnamon applesauce and omitted the cinnamon.
Put the chicken pieces into your crockpot. Add the onion. In a bowl, mix the applesauce, vinegar, garlic, and spices together and pour on top of the chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours, or on high for 3-4.
