I have all of these beautiful apples and am eager to enjoy the flavor. With family weddings and weekends away I have sadly neglected the crate in my basement! I made apples and pork, cranberry- apple sauce, and rustic apple pie. Today I am putting dinner in the slow cooker and using some of my yummy apples. I am also going to make another rustic apple pie for dessert.
So Chicken & Apples in the Slow Cooker:
- 2 lbs. chicken ~ I defrosted chicken breast purchased on sale a couple of weeks ago.
- 2 white or yellow onions ~ sliced
- 3 large apples ~ peeled, cored, and sliced
- a healthy pinch of Kosher salt
- a pinch of ground pepper
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup apple cider or juice
- 1 tbsp tarragon
It is really as simple as this. Arrange slices of onion and apple in the bottom of the slow cooker, making a lovely bed for the chicken. Place the chicken on that, and season with the salt & pepper. Gently pour the broth and cider over the whole thing. Sprinkle the tarragon over the top. Slow cook for 3 – 4 hours.
Now if you prefer a different flavor, you could replace the tarragon with rosemary, or any seasoning of your choice. You could also put rice into the crock pot (2 cups cooked)! We are not big rice eaters, but how great if you are. Dinner in the slow cooker. Add a green or salad and eat up.
I will serve this with some potatoes for Barry and a green vegetable. I will make a small pot of cranberry and applesauce. And there will be apple pie for dessert for my hubby.
What are you making for dinner? If you hadn’t decided it is not too late to put this lovely meal in the slow cooker. Enjoy!
