Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto

You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.

If you’re wondering why I used a combination of boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breasts, it’s to keep the pulled chicken as moist and flavorful as possible. Because sometimes boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be dry due to the lack of fat, I wanted to pack in as much moisture and flavor as I could.
