Slow Cooker Bacon-Wrapped Apple Chicken
This was a very interesting and tasty meal we enjoyed recently! I highly recommend using Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce - it has been a favorite in our household for years and works great in this recipe. I also suggest using thick cut bacon if you have it. We used the full 5 small apples called for and ended up with a lot of "extra" apple pieces that seemed like too much to eat with just 4 pieces of chicken, so I would suggest using only 3 apples unless you know you like a LOT of topping with your chicken.
We served this up with some green beans and macaroni and cheese for a delicious dinner! The leftover reheated well too the next day for my lunch!
