Crockpot Winter ChickenSubmitted by: SHARTLESVILLE
IntroductionHearty, flavorful crockpot dish. Hearty, flavorful crockpot dish.
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 C Sweet potato, raw, cubed (1" cubes)
1 C Apple, cubed
1 C Celery, chopped (not diced)
1 Small Onion, raw (sliced or diced, your preference)
1/2 C Dried Cranberries (craisins)
1 C Light Cranberry Apple Juice
1 tsp Rosemary
1 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Salt
SPECIAL NOTE: DIVIDE THE SPICES - 1/2 goes in at the beginning; 1/2 goes in 30 -60 minutes before serving. If you won't have time before serving, you can put them all in at the beginning but it will be less flavorful.
Place fruit & vegetables in the bottom of the crockpot, cover with juice. Sprinkle 1/2 the cinnamon over fruit and vegetable mix.
Add chicken breasts, sprinkle 1/2 of each of the remaining spices over everything.
Cover and cook on high heat for 4-6 hours or low heat for 6-8 hours depending on your crockpot.
Turn the chicken over and add the other half of the spices about an hour before you plan to serve it.
** I tried it with half Orange Juice half Cranberry Juice and it was still delicious but the orange flavor stood out more than I expected.
Number of Servings: 8

I'm cooking it now but I didn't have cran-apple. I had cranberry juice and orange juice so I'm doing half of each. It smells divine! I can't wait to taste it later. :-)
** Update: It was wonderful! It is even better as leftovers.
