Sweet Apple BBQ Chicken

by Jenny on July 26, 2012

I get daily emails from Hungry Girl and usually browse them for recipe ideas and then store them in a recipe folder in my email. Sometimes I will remember about a recipe I saw in one of the emails and search to find it again but today, a crockpot recipe caught my eye and I instantly knew I wanted to have it for dinner.

One of the things I liked best about this recipe from Hungry Girl is that there are no artificial ingredients added. A lot of her recipes are low-calorie but contain ingredients that are made from a ton of fake products and aren’t the healthiest for you. However, this recipe is basic, low-calorie, easy to make and delicious.

Quadruple Bonus! :)

Instead of cubing the chicken before putting it in the crockpot, I left the breasts whole and shredded them once they were cooked through.

The apples were perfectly cooked and almost melted in your mouth – it reminded me of a baked apple dessert in that sense. :)

Served over rice this was a sweet and savory meal that really hit the spot!


Do you ever make recipe from Hungry Girl? Do you adapt them to keep the ingredients healthier?

I saw this recipe this week, too, and it really interested me. I don’t usually make here recipes either because I don’t like the artificial sweeteners or products that she uses, which I avoid at all costs. I’m glad you tried this and gave it a good review! I will certainly try this, although I will pair it with brown rice.
