Rosemary, dijon, apples, and sweet potatoes cook with chicken in this light and healthy slow cooker meal.
This is recipe 4 out of 5 in my warm-weather slow cooker recipe series. Hamilton Beach recently featured my 5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Mac & Cheese recipe as a part of their 16 Best Spring & Summer Slow Cooker Recipes series. As a result, I created my own 5-recipe spring/summertime slow cooker series all using my Hamilton Beach Programmable 6-Quart slow cooker since they inspired this idea. I can’t believe I waited so long to make this for the blog. In particular I think of summer when I think of this. Maybe it’s the colors. It’s so colorful. And the sauce is very light. Expect an almost sweet taste. This was one of the first recipes I created myself when I got my first slow cooker 5 years ago. It came out delicious and I was so proud haha. This is still one of my favorite recipes. White sweet potatoes, yams, red onion, and red delicious apples. This is what I used this time. You can vary it up. If you like gala apples, use gala. If you want to use potatoes rather than sweet potatoes go for it. You see what I’m getting at here.
Colorful food. Mix it up.
Add the chicken. You can play around here too. I usually use chicken breasts but you can use any cut of chicken: thighs, legs, boneless, skin-on, etc.
The sauce makes this meal. Whisk it together and pour it on top.
The only thing missing with this are some greens. If you’re feeling bold – go on and throw some green beans in the slow cooker too. Another option is my raw kale avocado salad.
