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!
