Chicken Apple BBQ Stew

I really like the pairing of meat with fruit. I wanted to try and make a chicken stew with BBQ sauce, and figured I would throw some apples and onions in as well. Instead of serving it over some cauliflower rice, I just added the riced cauliflower to the dish and let it cook, making this dish incredibly simple and basically less than 5 minutes of prep time! No need to dice the chicken before hand, it'll shred right up after it's cooked. Easy!

You can use any BBQ sauce you like. I just happened to have a jar of PaleoChef's Peach BBQ sauce which was delicious in this dish, but use whatever kind you have on hand, or whip up your own!

1) 2 pounds of raw chicken thighs (or breasts, I just buy the cheaper cut usually)
2) 2 apples, cored and diced
3) 2 onions, diced
4) 1 head of cauliflower (or a 2 pound bag of florets, like I used)
5) 12oz of BBQ sauce

**Servings: 4-6

1) Add your raw chicken to the crockpot.
2) Chop up your apples and onions, and add them as well.
3) Add your BBQ sauce, and stir to incorporate.
4) Using the shredding attachment on your food processor or a box grater, grate your cauliflower into "rice". Then, add this to your crockpot and stir to fully mix.
5) Cook on low for 8-10 hours (however long you're gone from home, perhaps). When it's done cooking, take two forks and shred the chicken into the mixture. Now, eat up!
