Paleo Berry Glazed Crockpot Chicken

With fall brings crockpot season! I always forget how much I love my crockpot until cool weather rolls around. I tend to be a messy cook. I try to clean while cooking and still end up with a huge mess in my kitchen. This is where the crockpot comes in. Everything goes into one pot and out comes an amazing dinner! I used Juli from PaleOMG jam recipe with fresh blackberries instead of raspberries. You can use store bought blackberry jam just check the ingredients! I ate this over a baked sweet potato, and it was the perfect meal. Serves 2-3 but easily doubles for a bigger group! Also in completely unrelated news, basketball season is here!! Well sort of. Colligate basketball programs were officially allowed to start practicing this past Saturday. I just want to warn any readers that semi-frequent basketball updates might be coming soon. Rock Chalk.

2 chicken breasts

1/4 cup + 1/2 tbls honey
1/3 cup coconut aminos
