From our paleo slow cooker recipes collection, this delicious chicken casserole recipe is another perfect winter warmer, and super tasty gluten free food!
This dish takes the classic cinnamon and apple combination and turns it into a savoury delight that will pleasure your olfactory senses and warm your very soul!
My husband and one of my daughters do not like cinnamon - I know! Sacrilege or what? (To be fair, it could have something to do with them having over egged the pudding by doing the cinnamon challenge the other year! Anyway, they both really enjoyed this casserole, even though they could definitely taste the cinnamon. So if you're thinking *eugh, gross* just give it a chance, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
We use chicken thighs in many of our paleo slow cooker recipes as these are both tasty and economical, and are apparently more nutrient rich than chicken breasts.
Chicken thighs are a great source of niacin and an excellent source of selenium, as well as being a great protein provider.
This dish is loaded with sweet potatoes which are rich in Vitamins A (beta carotene (which gives them their orange colour) & C which are both powerful antioxidants - antioxidants are reputed to help in the prevention of a number of significant diseases, not least cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Broccoli, which also features in this dish, is another amazing superfood; providing protein, thiamin, iron, calcium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, as well as vitamins A, C, K E, B6 along with folate, riboflavin, potassium and manganese.
