Why is it so hard to get back in the swing of work after a long weekend? This Labor Day I got to be lazy do what I want, you know go for bike rides, eat out, see movies, watch fireworks, and did I say be lazy.  Yep, I may have even taken a nap, but I won’t confirm or deny that.

I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and got to relax, eat lots of food and maybe you got to take a nap.  I won’t tell if you did.  We will keep that between us.

I have been crazy busy as of late and I have been turning to the slow cooker to help me out with my dinner.  I am always trying to come up with simple ways to make up dinner in the slow cooker, with little ingredients, but plenty of flavors.

We actually harvested some Brussels sprouts from the garden before the bugs got them all, and I wanted to shred them up and serve them with a simple protein, and sauce.

Can we pause for a moment for the cuteness below?  She always shows up when things start smelling good, so I thought a photo was in order.

WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS PALEO MAPLE GARLIC CHICKEN IN A SLOW COOKER.

This recipe couldn’t be any more easy, throw the chicken in the cooker after you lightly season it, mix up the maple garlic mix, pour it over, close the lid and let it slow cook away.  What you are left with is perfectly flavored chicken that is super moist, easy to shred and perfect with some fresh vegetables.  I served my chicken with shredded raw brussels sprouts and red bell pepper.  The extra maple garlic sauce works perfect tossed with both of these as a side dish.

Do not toss Brussels Sprouts into slow cooker until ready to serve. They should be served raw, not cooked.
