Crockpot Applesauce + Applesauce BBQ Chicken

Thanks to some homemade applesauce we are down to our last few apples from apple picking last weekend. So today I, ahem, I mean Caroline is bringing you two recipes — crockpot applesauce & applesauce bbq chicken! And awesome news…they are super easy.

Honestly, I was skeptical about the chicken recipe but daaaaaaang it was SO good. I actually doubled the recipe to make two dinners out of it and my family devoured the ENTIRE batch in one dinner.
