applesauce + barbecue sauce...does this sound like an odd combo for chicken marinade?
if so, you'll just have to trust me. this is a great simple recipe for a weeknight meal..
pair it with veggies, mashed potatoes, salad, or fruit and you're good!
you can make it in the crock pot, or bake it.

2/3 cup chunky applesauce
2/3 cup BBQ sauce 
2 T brown sugar

2. Place chicken breasts on bottom.
3. Mix all remaining ingredients together, and pour over chicken. 
4. Cook 6-8 hours on low setting. Serves 4.
for the oven:
  1. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix up all ingredients for sauce, and pour over chicken.
