Apple Bacon Wrapped Chicken

If the title of this post isn’t clear enough let me explain:

Wanting to do something other then throw a chicken in the cooker with water,

I decided it only made sense to wrap that chicken in bacon and apple slices……

Apple Bacon Chicken

You’re welcome 😉

The result was a VERY moist and flavorful chicken!

No doubt you could use this same recipe for an oven roasted chicken, just know

that it will likely have a different end result…I’d be curious to know though!

It’s a rather simple method with few ingredients, so let’s go!

You Will Need:

1 Whole Chicken (3-5lb)

3-4 Cups Carrots, Chopped

1/2 White Onion, Diced

1-2 Cups Water (I used 2 for this, though 1 would have sufficed)

2 Strips Bacon*, Halved

1 Apple**, Sliced

Method:

~ Prepare your carrots and onion and add to slow cooker.

~ Place chicken on top of  vegetables and add water.

~ Set apple slices on chicken (I tucked some under the wings and on top)

~ Lay bacon slices over apples.

~ Cover and cook for 8 hours

I served mine with sweet potato chips and the result was de.lic.ious.

* I used turkey bacon, though any kind would do. It would be interesting to try a maple bacon and see how that affects the taste!

** My apple of choice was Honey Crisp, again, use any kind and see how that changes things!
