Maple Praline Chicken

Another WINNER from our Gooseberry Patch Slow Cooker Recipes! I thought that the Cajun seasoning might make it a little too spicy for the kids but they loved it, probably because it's a touch sweet, too. For more excellent slow cooker recipes, check out Sandra's Slow Cookin' Thursday!


Maple Praline Chicken

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 c. maple syrup
2 Tbsp. brown sugar, packed
1 cup chopped pecans

Sprinkle chicken with Cajun seasoning. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook chicken in butter until golden. Arrange chicken in a slow cooker. Mix together syrup, brown sugar and pecans; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours. Yummy with wild rice!

We tried it the other day! It was so yummy! I was worried about it being spicy, but the syrup really helped. I didn't do the nuts. We're not a nut lovin' family! Thanks for the recipe!
