Freezer Meal Recipe – Sweet BBQ Applesauce Chicken

by myroilist

Have you ever cooked your chicken in applesauce? If not, you’re missing out! This recipe takes BBQ chicken to the next level. The applesauce doesn’t overpower the chicken or make it too sweet {as I had originally feared}. It just keeps it moist and gives it just a tiny kick of sweetness.

All you’ll have to do when you’re ready to prepare it is toss it in the crock pot and go on your merry way. You can used store bought applesauce and BBQ sauce for a quick meal, but I love the dish even more with the homemade varieties of both. I think it just gives the chicken a little extra somethin’ somethin’.

4 large boneless chicken breasts
2 cups applesauce {I use my Homemade Applesauce Recipe}
2 cups BBQ sauce {I use my Quick and Easy BBQ Sauce Recipe}
1/2 cup onion, minced


To Freeze: Mix all ingredients after chicken together in a small bowl. Place 2 chicken breasts each in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, pour sauce over chicken, zip it shut & and lay it flat in the freezer.

To Cook: When you’re ready to cook it, pull it out of the freezer and thaw in fridge for 24 hours; place in your slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours. You can also cook this from frozen if you forget to pull it out of the freezer {not that I’ve ever done that of course}. Just cook on the higher end of the cooking time suggestions.
