Ingredients

  • chicken breasts  boneless and skinless
  • 12 slices  bacon  thick cut
  • 1/2  cup  brown sugar
  • tsp  garlic  minced
  • salt and pepper to taste optional
  • fresh parsley optional garnish

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken breasts on a plate and rub the mixture onto each.
  • Wrap each chicken breast all around with 2-3 bacon slices, starting and finishing on the bottom of each breast.
  • Place the wrapped chicken breasts into the crock pot in a single layer, snuggling them in as evenly as possible.
  • Sprinkle any remaining brown sugar mixture on top.
  • Cover with lid and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) is reached.
  • Optional: After cooking, place under the broiler (about 6 inches from the heating element) for 2-3 minutes to crispen up the bacon.
  • Garnish with optional parsley. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Don’t remove the lid during cooking, as this will lengthen cooking time.
  • Check doneness after 3 hours the first time around, as there can be some variations among crock pots.
