Are you looking for THE appetizer to take to your next party or potluck? These Crock Pot Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites will be perfect for just that!
Author: Aunt Lou
Cut your bacon slices in half, set aside
Cut your chicken breasts into bite size pieces (I cut my chicken into 24 pieces because my pkg of bacon had 12 slices, which I cut in half, giving me 24 pieces of bacon to use)
Wrap one half piece of bacon around a piece of chicken and place in the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker (I used Cera, my 6 Quart Crock Pot with Ceramic Coated Pot). Repeat with all of your chicken and bacon pieces
Sprinkle your brown sugar evenly across the top of your bacon wrapped chicken bites
Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours (use a meat thermometer to ensure that your chicken is cooked to the proper temperature without overcooking it)
Place your bacon wrapped chicken on a foil lined baking pan, drizzle juices from crock pot over top of all of them and broil on high for 2-3 minutes, watching continually, to crisp up the bacon a bit
You will want to line your baking sheet with foil for easy clean up when you are crisping up your bacon. Also, when you are using your broiler, I always recommend the “Pull up a chair and stare” method. If you take your eyes off of something in your broiler, it is very easy to go from oh yum to oh no. So just watch it closely.
As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
