Slow Cooker Bacon-Maple Chicken
Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
This wrapped chicken is packed with flavor from the bacon and homemade sauce. If your slow cooker “runs hot” and tends to dry things out, we suggest cooking for 5 to 6 hours, or add 1 cup of water or chicken stock before adding the chicken and sauce to the slow cooker. We hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
