Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

1. Season the Chicken:

  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.

2. Cook the Bacon:

  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Crumble the bacon into small pieces and set aside.

3. Prepare the Glaze:

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, honey, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, smoked paprika, and dried thyme until well combined.

4. Layer in the Slow Cooker:

  • Place the seasoned chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle the crumbled bacon evenly over the chicken.

5. Pour the Glaze:

  • Pour the prepared glaze mixture over the chicken and bacon, ensuring that the chicken is coated evenly.

6. Cook:

  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

7. Glaze the Chicken:

  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and transfer it to a serving platter.
  • If desired, spoon some of the glaze from the slow cooker over the chicken for extra flavor and shine.

8. Serve:

  • Garnish the glazed chicken with chopped fresh parsley, if using.
  • Serve the Slow Cooker Bacon Glazed Chicken hot, accompanied by your favorite side dishes, such as rice, mashed potatoes, or steamed vegetables.

Notes:

  • If you prefer a thicker glaze, you can transfer the liquid from the slow cooker to a saucepan and simmer it over medium heat until it reduces to your desired consistency.
  • Feel free to adjust the seasonings and sweetness of the glaze according to your taste preferences.

Enjoy the delicious combination of savory bacon and sweet glaze in this Slow Cooker Bacon Glazed Chicken for a comforting and satisfying meal!
