Crockpot Chicken with Apple and Sweet Potato is the perfect easy dinner for Autumn. This delicious clean eating meal has such a great savory taste with a little bit of sweetness. The spices used in this recipe really bring the dish to life and will make your taste buds explode with delight! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the amazing taste and how hearty this meal was. I call it a ‘creation’ because its not stir fry, its not stew and a steamy hot bowl of Autumn inspired mush is not a very appetizing title.
