Slow Cooker Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ Chicken

OK, so the title alone is a mouthful!  I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it is available at the site The Chateauguay Citizen.  The recipe sounded intriguing and relatively simple, so I thought I'd give it a try. My husband's response was that this was an explosion of taste.  He said he meant that in a good way.  I have to agree with him.  This is a sweet and salty recipe with ingredients that don't always go together.  We still thought it tasted good, but it definitely will wake up your taste buds!


BBQ and Apples mixed together

Chicken wrapped in bacon and added to the crockpot

All ingredients ready to cook



4 boneless chicken breasts (mine were frozen and they still cooked in the time allotted)
8 slices of bacon
1 cup BBQ Sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
5 small apples, peeled and chopped

Mix the BBQ sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice and apples together.  Set aside.
Grease the inside of the crock pot.
Wrap two slices of bacon around each chicken breast and place in the bottom of the crock pot.
Pour the apple-BBQ mixture over the top of the chicken.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
