#GlutenFree Chicken on a bed of Sauerkraut for #SundaySupper Inspired by Paula Deen

I love Paula Deen and I also love that every once in a while we hear from her at #Sunday Supper. So when I heard we needed a recipe that inspired us from our favorite Television Chef I immediately thought about her recipe for Pork in a Pot with Sauerkraut  Then I thought I must make it in Chicken because one I'm not a fan of pork and two I never have a lot of time in my day to cook dinner? I don’t !!! So with my busy schedule of working, raising a family and writing. I fall back on my crock pot as soon as Autumn roles around. Here is a recipe you can make either on your way to work, on low for 8 hours, or if you can stop by home at lunch cook at the high setting for 4 hours. You decide!!!

Chicken on a bed of Sauerkraut Ingredient's:

1  16-Ounce Jar Aunt Nellie's Red Cabbage
4 Chicken breast
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 tablespoons Olive oil
1 Cup dried apricots
2 Granny Smith apples
Slice 1 yellow onion
2 teaspoons of dill weed

Take a Jar of Red Cabbage Sauerkraut and place in bottom of crock Pot.

Next season with Salt and pepper
Brown chicken breast in olive oil

After browned place on top of Cabbage

Sprinkle Apricots on top of Chicken

Next peel and slice Apples and sprinkle on top.

Now place onion on top

Then season with Dill weed and put in crock pot on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours you decide.

I serve on a bed of mashed potatoes. You could also serve with rice you decide.
