I love chicken, but I will admit, the family and I can get bored with it from time to time.  So, I love finding new ways and fun ways to cook chicken, especially in the slow cooker.  And it’s an added bonus if the kids like it 😉  This easy slow cooker recipe has bacon, apples, and BBQ sauce, how could you possibly go wrong with all that deliciousness in one meal?!

I had some delicious green tart apples from Crunch Pak and since they were sliced, juicy, and ready to go, they were the easy to use for the apples part of this recipe.  For the bacon, I did toss it on the skillet for a few minutes before I wrapped the chicken in it because I like my bacon crispy.  I don’t know about you, but whenever I wrap anything with bacon it never comes out as crispy as I would like it, so, my thought was that if I cooked it up a little first that would help…and it did.

The tart apples were the perfect balance of flavor to the BBQ sauce, and bacon…well, bacon makes everything better.

Equipment

  • Slow Cooker

Ingredients

  • lb boneless skinless chicken breasts 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups sliced tart green apples I used Crunch Pak apples
  • 1 cup your favorite BBQ sauce I used Sweet Baby Rays
  • 8 slices BACON
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Sprinkle a small amount of salt and pepper on each side of the chicken
  • Partially cook the bacon slices in a large skillet on the stove
  • Wrap each piece of chicken in 2 pieces of bacon and place in the bottom of a slow cooker
  • Mix the apple slices and BBQ sauce in a bowl
  • Pour over the BBQ sauce mixture over the chicken
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours in the crock pot or until chicken is completely cooked
  • Enjoy!

Notes

You can also cook on high for 2-3 hours.
If you think you may have it in the slow cooker longer or using less than 4 chicken breasts, I suggest adding 1/2 cup (just enough to cover the bottom of the slow cooker) of low-sodium chicken broth to ensure it doesn't dry the chicken out.
