Crock-Pot Maple Dijon Chicken
Here’s a super easy dish I think you’ll really enjoy. The chicken is so tender and the sauce is extremely flavorful!  First, the chicken is cooked with the sauce in the crock-pot. Once cooked, you shred it. I love to serve this shredded chicken and sauce over steamed cabbage or broccoli slaw. Served this way, each serving has 267 calories and 3 grams of fat.
