So very quick and easy to put together. We serve this over rice. I love the comingled flavours of the apples and cranberries.
- 4 -6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 4 -6 green onions
- 1⁄2 cup dried sweetened cranberries
- 1⁄2 cup dried apple, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, very thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons butter
- Place chicken breasts in a 2-quart (or larger) slow cooker/Crock Pot.
- Add remaining ingredients in the order given, dotting evenly with the butter last. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.
This was really great and a breeze to make. I used 2 fresh apples, chopped, rather than the dried and they were wonderful. I also used a bit more lemon juice and threw in some zest. I served with canned sweet potatoes with the sauce served over both the chicken and potatoes. Delish!
UPDATE: I had to return to add this note. Though not everyone was fond of this dish, I cut up the leftover chicken and returned it to the pot. I added Hot Madras Curry Powder to it and stirred it well. A few days later I made some fresh rice and heated this up. WOW! This made an awesome curry! Since DH liked the original dish, I will definitely make this again and do the same post-meal treatment! ** (original review) This was a nice change to our standard chicken. I didn't have dried apples so used 4 fresh apples, diced. This was tasty and I made gravy out of the drippings. DS & DD were not fond of the pairing of fruit with chicken but DH and I thought it was fine. Made and reviewed for ZWT4
Oh my gosh, wonderful chicken! The cranberries and apples are so good with the chicken and seasonings. I used 6 chicken breasts, closer to 3/4 cup dried cranberries and apples, and did have to add some chicken broth towards the end. Smells great while cooking and tastes just as good. This one is a keeper! Made and reviewed for ZWT 4.
