Cinnamon Apple Pulled Chicken
December 4, 2018

This is a throwback to one of my first ever "recipe creations". It was my start to veering away from following strict recipes and instructions and coming up with my own concoctions! I originally posted the recipe on the Vitality blog in 2016. I had forgotten about the recipe until recently and decided to bring it back into rotation this week. 

Although I haven't tried it, I am thinking that you could easily replace the chicken breast with pork loin! Make a large batch to serve to a crowd or enjoy as leftovers throughout the week. 

I have been enjoying this recipe post-workout alongside some rice and cauliflower "rice" for extra veggies and volume. This carbohydrate containing meal with the rice and maple syrup is welcomed after a tough workout. 

If you make this recipe, be sure to tag me on Instagram @vitaitynutrition_ or Facebook so I can see your creations!
