Maple Mustard Chicken (Paleo)

Maple Mustard Chicken

Remember the salad dressing that I used for THIS SALAD?  It is a doctored up version of the sauce I made for this chicken.  I just added a little vinegar and oil to it to thin it out a bit.  It’s seriously tasty, and I could use it as a dressing for every salad I eat from here on out.  Well, maybe not every salad.  I mean, it would taste funny on something like a Mexican or Italian salad.

This is a super easy recipe; however, it’s not something that can go all day in the slow cooker (though if you switch the chicken breasts to a pile of bone-in, skin-on chicken parts, you can stretch out the cooking time quite a bit).  But if you are using the boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I used this time, you don’t want to go more than four hours, max (and really, check them at three hours).  If you do, they will turn into shoe leather.  But it really can’t get easier: spray pot, chicken in, whisk liquid, pour liquid, cook chicken.  Done and done.
