This recipe for Crock-Pot Applesauce Chicken is included in our Crock-Pot 10 Easy Freezer Meals.  If you are coming to this page first and are interested in doing freezer meals, start here.  This recipe does NOT have to be frozen first, if you are wanting to do this recipe by itself, then stay on this page and we will go from here.


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.
