This week's Savory Saturday recipe is actually a guest post from our friend, Amy A. This recipe sounds easy and would be so PERFECT for Sunday lunch/dinner. It can simmer in the crockpot while you're at church and you can walk in the door to it's yummy aroma! Thank you, Amy!
Bacon-Wrapped BBQ Chicken
(Amy said she got this off a blog but I don't know which one. If you happen to know the blog, feel free to give it a shout out!)
3-4 chicken breasts
½ c. BBQ sauce*****
1-2 apples, peeled and grated (Amy used applesauce – maybe ½ c.?)
1 lemon, juiced (leave it out if you use applesauce)
6 slices bacon
Mix BBQ sauce, apples and lemon together in a small bowl; set aside.Wrap chicken breasts in bacon strips and place in bottom of slow cooker.Pour sauce mixture over chicken.Set cooker to LOW and cook 8 hours.
*****Amy said she often makes her own BBQ sauce, but has lately been buying Montgomery Inn sauce. It’s from a restaurant in Cincinnati and they’ve started selling it at Super Wal-Mart. It tastes the most homemade without that heavy smoky flavor. She served this with baked rice and mashed sweet potatoes and it was a hit! AND she said, "I cut my chicken breasts in half, which requires a little more bacon. I do this for portion control. If my husband has a whole chicken breast then he usually wants a second helping. However, when I serve him 2 half portions then he feels like he’s eaten more. Don’t tell him I told you that!! " GREAT tip.
