Yesterday I did not post anything on my blog which is unusual for me. Something had to give and yesterday it was my blog. Everything is good but the day can only hold so many things. When I looked back over the last 11 weeks I realized I had only missed posting 6 days. Not bad. So, this was our Wednesday night dinner.
Now that I have resigned myself to the fact that it really is fall I am jumping into all the things we love about it. The apple cider, the donuts, the sweatshirts and walks where you scuff your feet in the fallen leaves. I really wanted to make a fall dinner with apples and pork. The pork was in the basement freezer. Did I REALLY want to go all the basement and dig through the freezer to find a pork roast or chops? No. So I opened the upstairs freezer and found chicken. Chicken. Pork is the “other” white meat so why not try it?
I wish I could add smell to my page. It was heavenly. The apples, cinnamon and honey were delicious with the chicken. My son loved it all. My daughter wasn’t thrilled by the apples but she loved the chicken and both asked me to make it again soon. It was so simple of course I agreed!
The chicken even had a delicious apple taste to it from the apples cooking right on top of the chicken.
I served this with fresh apple cider which really brought the meal together. I served the chicken over Amish egg noodles with corn and a green salad on the side.
My son suggested we add applesauce, apple pie and more cider to the meal next time. 🙂
Slow Cooker Apple Chicken
- 1 1/2 – 2 lbs chicken breast, pounded down to 1/2″ – 3/4″
- 4 – 5 large apples, sliced – your choice, I used Macs (You can peel them if you wish. I did not)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons honey
- egg noodles for serving, if desired
- Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker. Place apple slices over the top of the chicken. Sprinkle cinnamon over top of apples and then drizzle with honey.
- Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Longer than 6 hours and your chicken will start to shred. It is up to you but my family prefers the breast still together.
- Serve over egg noodles, if desired.
