This recipe was the final chicken recipe that we ate. The applesauce flavor had a nice mellow taste to it. Nothing was overpowering and the kids didn’t feel like they were just eating applesauce. It all blends well and kept the chicken moist. We ate ours on Egg Noodles (that I cooked on the stove, not crock) and I warmed up a bag of frozen veggies to eat with it as well.
Mix the other ingredients in a bowl and then pour over the chicken.
Cook on low for 6 hours.
Place all ingredients in ziploc bag except chicken.
Mush with your hand a bit to mix it.
Add the chicken.
Lay flat, squeeze excess air out and lay flat before placing in the freezer.
Thaw before cooking.
Carefully pull out the chicken and place in the greased Crock-Pot.
Pour the BBQ/Applesauce mix over the chicken and cook for 6 hours.
I served mine over egg noodles. You could also serve over rice, or even mashed potatoes.
Hi I'm Sarah, I live in very rural Kansas with my 3 children. We also have 3 hens, Betty Lou, Dinozzo, Jenny Jewel. Our fun involves gardening, living in an iconic area of the country where corn fields,small towns, tractors, farmers and hard work are still very important and occasionally when we need some adventure we drive on over the border to Missouri where the real shopping stores are...aka Target. I grew up in Utah so I enjoy commemorating with Heidi over everything Rocky Mountains.
