Sweet Apple BBQ Chicken

Crockpots are an easy one-step solution to dinner on a hot summer day.

Another wonderful summer dish is Chicken Salad Pie with the recipe on page 176 in Tastes & Treasures cookbook.

Sweet Apple BBQ Chicken Crockpot


1 1/2 lb. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes

3/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

3 cups chopped Fuji apples

1 1/2 cups chopped onion

1/2 cup BBQ sauce with 45 calories or less per 2-tbsp. serving

2 tsp. chopped garlic

1 tbsp. cornstarch


Season chicken with 1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper and place in a crock pot. Top with apples and onion.

 In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix garlic into BBQ sauce. Pour sauce mixture over contents of the crock pot, and lightly stir. 

Cover and cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or on low for 7 - 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.

 Turn crock pot to low (if needed).
In a small bowl, stir to dissolve cornstarch in 1 tbsp. cold water. Stir mixture into the contents of the crock pot, along with remaining 1/2 tsp. salt.

 Let sit, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
