There is absolutely no way to make slow cooked meals look good in pictures so I’m sorry for the lack of good pictures. I tried. Really, I did.
This is a wonderful fall meal. It has all the flavors of the season. It has been kid tested and approved, too. My neighbors made it the other night and I got a thumbs up from the whole family. (Thanks, Bob and Melora!)
1 C apple juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/3 C packed brown sugar
1 onion, sliced
Mix together the apple juice, cider vinegar and mustard. Pour around the chicken.
Arrange the onion and apples around the chicken. Sprinkle the rest of the brown sugar over the entire dish.
Cook on low for 6 hours.
I suggest serving over brown rice or quinoa just for a little nutty flavor. Also, a couple sprigs of thyme arranged on top of the whole mixture in the crockpot would add a hint of flavor. I didn’t do it this time but I will next time.
