rock the crock and the big game

it's been awhile since I've rocked the crock
and with the humidity and heat kickin it up a notch
I knew it was time to bring it.
and keep my kitchen as cool as I could.
what I didn't expect was the YUMMY smell in the air
as this applesauce chicken slow-ly cooked....
here's what you need
chicken (I used frozen chicken chests)
1 T minced onion flakes
2 cups applesauce
1 T cider vinegar
2 tsp minced garlic (I use jarred)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (it gives a kick!...may skip next time)
it's as easy as laying chicken in the bottom
and pouring all the goods on top
Rock the Crock
on low: 5-7 hrs
on high: 3-4 hrs
Caleb thought it was okay.
But you need to understand this boy of mine
is not really into food
So I'll take 'ok' and make it again
and serve it alongside the cheddar potatoes
(which Jon requested and was really stoked about)
---Caleb's Big Game---
He was so excited to be playing on the same field as his big bro
He was even more excited to drink his Powerade
And possibly even more excited to run the bases over and over and over again.
He loves to run.
And I love him.

happy monday, all!

grocery list:
onion flakes
cider vinegar
minced garlic
red pepper flakes


  1. Okay, this is my lunch idea! I have 3 hours on high in the crock and I'll just barely make it... you know I have a super hungry football boy coming home from practice with his daddy for lunch and then back to practice. I think he will like this one.
    Oh and tell Caleb great job on his big game! And that I really like to run too. :)
    (thanks for rockin the crock today!)

  2. I love watching my boys play ball. And that food looks so super yummy!

  3. i don't have a crock pot. i feel like i've told you this already, though. i tell everyone that posts a crock pot recipe. almost like a confession. i really need one.
