Slow Cooker Chicken & Sweet Pots

Everywhere I look I see delicious fall recipes.  I would love to crank out an elaborate seasonal feast every night, but with my funky work schedule I like to have dinner ready when I get home.  My last client usually ends around or after dinner time so it can be a pain to come home and prepare food.  The crock pot is truly the answer to this dilemma.  This recipe is gluten free, delicious and only takes 10 minutes of prep.

Sweet Potato Crock

Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 pound of organic skinless chicken breasts
  • Half of an onion
  • 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced

Directions:

  1. Peel and chop sweet potatoes
  2. Slice chicken into one inch cubes
  3. Place chicken and sweet potatoes in crock pot and season with salt and pepper
  4. Mix onion, apple sauce, apple cider vinegar, cumin and garlic in a small bowl
  5. Place mixture on top of chicken and sweet potatoes, cover and cook for 6 hours on low

I have eaten this dish a few ways.  On the first night I ate the dish alone.  On the second day I mixed with red quinoa and on the third day I served alongside sauteed kale and brussel sprouts.  It’s tasty, filling and delicious as a leftover.  I found the original recipe via Stock Pilling Moms and look forward to trying more of their slow cooker recipes!
