could i make this recipe using any form of chicken?
For this recipe, we have only tried it using boneless skinless chicken breasts. However, I am sure it would work just as well if you used any form of boneless meat.
We love using boneless chicken thighs, because the meat is so juicy and tender. It’s also a little darker. Chicken tenders would also work great with this recipe.
Chicken with the bone in, might get a little tricky and cook a little differently, so we recommend no bones.
You could also cook the chicken on high for 4 hours, but we recommend cooking it on low for longer, for a more juicy chicken.
a faster way to grate your apples:
For this recipe, we recommend you peel your apples so the skin doesn’t ruing the texture of the meal.
We don’t recommend using the core of the apple either because of the seeds and it’s a little more tough. For this recipe, you can use a cheese grater to grate the apples, but you could also use a blender or food processor.
Again we recommend peeling the skin and removing the core if you plant to give them a quick pulse in the food processor or blender, but grating them words great.
You could also use apple sauce if you don’t have any apples, but the bigger apple pieces taste amazing with this recipe.
