Ingredients

    Here are the ingredients as stated in the original recipe:
    -4 frozen chicken breast halves or thighs (I used 2 of each)
    --1 1/2 cups of applesauce
    --1 T dried onion flakes, or 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 (optional, I used them, and added more to the adult servings)
    I use 3 packages of Costco boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this, and up the other ingredients accordingly.

Directions


A 6 quart crockpot. If your pot cooks fast, err on the lower end of cooking time.

I decided to up the applesauce a bit from Amiyrah's original recipe and omitted the water. I live life on the edge.

Saute the onion in a little olive oil or cooking spray until translucent. Add the garlic when the onions are nearly done.

Put the frozen chicken pieces into your crockpot. Add the onion and garlic. In a bowl, mix the applesauce, vinegar, garlic, and spices together. Pour on top of the chicken.

Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours, or on high for 3-4.

Serve with brown rice or quinoa.
