Crock Pot Praline Chicken

Crock-Pot-Praline-Chicken

I knew that the idea of Praline Chicken sounded good, but I had no idea just how wonderful this would turn out. I honestly think that this is one of the best meals I have ever made from scratch. Seriously! After making it I thought to myself, “This could be served at a gourmet bistro, and it came out of my crockpot!”

I served it on top of baby spinach greens, but you could put this over rice, couscous, whatever floats your boat. For an added bonus I made a batch of sweet potato fries and included the recipe too!

What shocked me was that my picky 6 year old son not only tried it, but ate every last morsel of food on his plate. I didn’t give him spinach, but he ate the chicken and the sweet potato fries. That is saying something right there.

This is a keeper at my house. It will be added to the regular rotation of meals! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

I love that it is gluten free and dairy free, no changes were necessary!

    Hi.

    Thank you for this recipe! I am Dairy Free (and gluten free), and I was excited to try this! I made it last night and it was a HIT with me and my husband, will make this again! 🙂 I served it over hot (dairy-free) buttered jasmine rice. YUM! Tip: Use REAL maple syrup (if you can, I know how expensive that stuff is, we happened to have it on hand, though). I think it makes a huge difference! I also used dark brown sugar. I didn’t have pecans, so used crushed almonds and it was still delicious 🙂 Thanks again!

  2. I didn’t find your recipe for the sweet potato fries—could you direct me to where I can find that, please? I am so excited to try this recipe—sounds SCRUMPTIOUS! Thank you!
