Applesauce chicken {in a crock pot}

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.

Applesauce Chicken
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.


  1. This looks so hearty and yummy... I must be the only person in existence who doesn't own a crock pot!

  2. This looks like such a great fall meal and I love that it can be prepared easily for a weeknight. Plus, my kids will love it!

  3. Love a good crock pot meal! This looks wonderful!

  4. Such a nice twist in the standard pork chops and applesauce fair!

  5. Oh, what a great idea for the crockpot! This chicken looks so good!
