It’s Thursday and that means Crockpot Thursday… I know, I’ve missed the last few weeks and I’m so sorry, but was just too sick to worry about dinner…:0(….
However, I’m back and ready to share another yummy, Fall recipe with you guys. This Apple Chicken dinner was a hit in the Crazy Mom’s house and I couldn’t get enough of it.
Chicken, apples and pecans are classic ingredients in chicken salad. when combined together in a hot casserole, the flavors and textures blend beautifully and you will have an amazing super easy, quick dinner!
This is what you need:
- 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1/2 cup Chicken Stock
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 Granny Smith Apples, sliced and peeled
- 1/3 cups chopped pecans ( I didn’t have any, left it out)
Sprinkle chicken with thyme, pepper and salt; place onions in bottom of 3-quart slow cooker. Top with chicken
In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except apples and pecans, mix well. Pour into slow cooker
Cover and cook on low for 5 hours; then stir in apples; cover and cook for 1-2 hours longer until chicken is thoroughly cooked and apples are tender. Sprinkle with pecans and serve over hot rice or pasta.
