Bacon Wrapped BBQ Apple Chicken

After my fail with the paste stew (see below), I had to pinch hit. I was able to find a recipe that I had all the ingredients for. It smelled wonderful, was easy and delish!
Little Man-not a fan of the bacon but ate all the chicken and rice
Princess-ate everything but picked the pilaf out of the rice
The Captain-his type of Chicken "anything tastes awesome wrapped in bacon"
The Cook-I am more of a well done bacon person (read...practically burned) and I loved the chicken but the bacon was a little too bacon-ey for me...I picked it off and nuked it and it was perfect.

3-4 chicken breasts

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1-2 apples, peeled and grated

1 lemon, juiced

6-8 slices bacon

Serve with rice ( I also served with caprese salad and pretzel bread)


1. In small bowl, combine BBQ sauce with grated apple and lemon juice.

2. Place chicken breasts in base of crock pot, pour BBQ/apple mixture over the chicken. Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each chicken breast. Set to low and cook for 8 hours. If using thinner chicken breasts (like cutlets) probably 5 hours on low is enough

  1. I can't do bacon slow cooked like that either - too slimy? I don't know, just weird. I like it crisp. But otherwise sounds good :)
