Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Applesauce Chicken is easy to make and tastes delicious. This is a real “kid-pleaser” recipe. It is Paleo and is so moist because you cook it in the slow cooker! You can serve with quinoa or brown rice. Trust me once you give this healthy slow cooker recipe a try, you will be sure to add it to your regular menu plan. I love when a recipe is kid approved because that means a less stressful time at dinner. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
