Curried Apple Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

Yep, I’m in love with Clean Eating Magazine. The latest issue contains so many {yummie sounding} recipes I don’t know where to begin.

…but I finally narrowed it down, and started on page 16, with Curried Apple Chicken and Sweet Potatoes.

I’m a big fan of slow cooker (crockpot) recipes. Little effort goes into these delicious meals + they’re perfect for tenderizing tough meats. Toss the ingredients in, turn on low for 6-8 hours, and come home to a savory meal!  Many of my {crazy-busy moms} clients rely on crockpot meals to save their sanity and provide healthy, well-balanced meals for their families.

Here are some crockpot recipes courtesy of Greatist.com.
