Now that school is back in session and our summer fun has been had, I am gearing up for Fall! I can feel it, a change is on the horizon!
I am dusting off some old and new recipes for autumn. Here is one I am going to try that I just found. It is for a dutch oven, but I think I may try this in the crock pot!
Autumn Chicken and Apple Stew
1 chicken, cut in parts (I am going to just use chicken breasts)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
6 whole cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 carrots, peeled, sliced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 apples, peeled, sliced
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 3/4 cups low sodium chicken broth, warm
1 cup applesauce
Spray large Dutch oven with vegetable cooking spray and heat over medium high temperature. Add chicken and cook, turning to brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Spread mustard over chicken pieces; add warm broth, vinegar, cloves and carrots; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook 15 minutes. Add apples and cook 5 minutes. Add cabbage, stirring into liquid. Cook, covered, about 10 minutes more or until fork can be inserted in chicken with ease. With slotted spoon, remove chicken and vegetables to warm serving bowl and keep warm. Into liquid, stir applesauce; boil on high temperature 5 minutes and pour over chicken and vegetables. Serve with brown rice, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
