Being college students, Maria and I are always looking for easy healthy meals to make at home so we aren’t always eating out. I bought a crockpot a little while ago because my friend Alex is always telling me about her delicious crockpot meals, but I hadn’t gotten around to using it until last night. I worked a double yesterday so I knew I wasn’t going to want to go home and cook and that meant I would probably end up eating dinner from Tijuana Flats. On my break Maria and I were talking about how we’d probably be home at the same time that evening and I had the brilliant idea to do a crockpot dinner! We wouldn’t have to cook after getting home late because it would just cook while we were out! Maria found a recipe from Food Network for Slow Cooker Chicken with Rosemary, Apples and Onions, we made a few modifications and boy was it good!
Here’s the recipe! *the pictures don’t do it justice, but it’s so good!!! *
Slow Cooker Chicken with Rosemary, Apples and Onions:
2 cups Onions, sliced
2 Apples, peeled and cored (we used 1 Granny Smith and 1 Red Delicious and left the skins on)
2 lbs Boneless Chicken Breast, cut into pieces
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
2 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary, chopped
1 cup Chicken Broth (I usually go for reduced sodium)
1/2 cup Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 cups Rice (we used a lentils packaged meal from Feeding Children Everywhere! It helps feed children and its delicious)
You can buy the Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) meal here!! http://www.store.feedingchildreneverywhere.com/products/808408-fce-lentil-casserole
Arrange onion and apple slices in bottom of slow cooker. Place chicken pieces on top and season all over with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle rosemary over chicken.
In a medium bowl, whisk together chicken broth and soup. Pour mixture over chicken.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
Serve chicken, sauce, apples, and onions over rice (or your FCE meal if you buy one)
