Apple Cinnamon Chicken

Okay, I know that sounds weird, but trust me when I say, it's delicious!

I was really worried about this meal because it's my own creation. I'm ALWAYS worried when I create something. I don't want it to turn out bad. 

While feeding LW a couple weeks ago the Hubs saw I was feeding him Apple Chicken and he started thinking about it out loud, wondering how that would taste. Due to his ramblings I decided to undergo a journey of coming up with a recipe. I looked around trying to find one that I could make, but after failing to find one that pleased me, I decided I would make my own. 

Now, I will warn you...

I'm not the best picture taker. Spunky is the professional photographer, not me. I took one picture while everything was in the crock-pot and another of the piece of chicken I was about to eat. I should have taken a picture with the chicken on the plate with the YUMMY stir-fry I made too, but I didn't.

Hey, it's a learning process. 

So!!! Without further delay, here is the recipe!

Apple Cinnamon Chicken
Serves 3

3 Chicken Breasts
1 Cup Water
3 Apples (peeled, cored, and cubed) I used Two Granny Smiths and One Gala
1/4 Cup Sugar
Spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Thyme, Garlic Powder, Minced Onion, Pepper, Salt (I'm sorry, I didn't measure on the spices...)

Cover the bottom of the crock-pot with apple chunks. Pour in water. Place Chicken Breasts on top of apple layer before covering with the remaining amount of apple cubes. Add Sugar and Spices. 

I pretty much did a quick once over with all the spices except Cinnamon, I went over the crock pot twice with Cinnamon.

Cover and let it cook for a while. Come back every so often and push things around so the spices get spread around evenly, coating the chicken. Flip chicken over halfway through cooking. 
Serve Hot with your choice of side and enjoy!!!

Oh! And another reason I know it was good, not just because my taste buds told me so, but because the Hubs rated it a 5 STAR dinner on a scale of 1-5. It is extremely rare that he gives anything a 5 stars! Woot!
