Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ Chicken in the Crockpot!

 Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ Chicken in the Crockpot!


What You Need
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce,  either store bought or quick DIY version below pairs nicely!
  • ¼ cup coconut palm sugar
  • ⅛ cup lemon juice, fresh or from a bottle
  • 5 small apples, peeled and chopped, I love the tartness of a Granny for cooking but Gala works well too.
  • 8 slices bacon
What You Do
  1. In a small bowl, combine BBQ sauce, coconut palm sugar, lemon juice and peeled/chopped apples.
  2. Wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon and place in a greased slow cooker.
  3. Pour BBQ-apple mixture over chicken and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is done.

Maple BBQ sauce
What You Need:
  • 1 cup ketchup (homemade ketchup using Epicure Chai Ketchup blend)
  •  3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil 
  • 1.5 tablespoons molasses 
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
What You Do: 1. In a medium saucepan mix together all ingredients. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer.
2. Simmer for 20minutes (uncovered), stirring occasionally.
3. Makes 1.5 cups of sauce. Pour and unused sauce into a glass jar and refrigerate for future use with a lovely BBQ hamburger option.

Serve with a side of your choice ... I opted for a lovely spinach and cabbage salad with a  Balsamic vinaigrette ... perfect dinner specially this past weekend with the wet weather we were having making using BBQ outside less palatable! 

Have an amazing day!
