Thrifty Recipe- Applesauce Chicken

It's been awhile, sorry about that! Between travelling and an unpleasant cold going through the family, blogging wasn't high on my list for a week.

A couple weeks ago, I mentioned an applesauce chicken crockpot dinner made during a week I avoided going to the grocery store. With a toddler, there is always some applesauce in the house. Add in a few spices and vinegar and you have a tasty dinner. Here's the recipe. Add some sweet potato fries (or a sweet potato) and peas and you have a healthy, balanced meal.

Applesauce Chicken
From Make it Fast, Cook it Slow

--4 frozen chicken breast halves or thighs
--1 1/2 cups of applesauce
--1 T dried onion flakes, or 1 yellow onion, chopped finely
--1 T apple cider vinegar
--1/4 tsp cinnamon
--1/2 tsp black pepper
--2 cloves garlic, minced (I used about 2 tsp of dried garlic flakes instead)
--1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (I'd add even more, especially if serving to adults)

1. Put the frozen chicken pieces into your crockpot. Add the onion (if you are using the dried onion, wait and add it to the applesauce).
2. In a bowl, mix the applesauce, vinegar, garlic, and spices together. Pour on top of the chicken.
3. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or on high for 3-4.
