We love slow cooker freezer meals because they make meal planning so easy on those busy days we all have. But you do not have to make this recipe as a freezer meal if you don’t want to. Just mix up the applesauce sauce (is that redundant?) and pour it over your chicken in the crock!
The applesauce sauce adds a nice mildness to the BBQ sauce (use whatever brand you like…we are big fans of Sweet Baby Ray’s brand). The kids really enjoyed this one. The apple sauce also makes the sauce thicker and it really coats the chicken breasts making for a nice moist chicken.
We ate our chicken over some egg noodles (cooked on the stove-top) and I warmed up a bag of frozen summer vegetables as a nice healthy side dish.
