Creamy Bacon Chicken in the Crock Pot

My real-life dear friend – Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen  is back with a quick and comfy dinner recipe for us!

Janelle writes:  I just love using my Crock Pot. Mmm…the smell of bacon gets me every time. lol.

I typically tend to shy away from slow cooking chicken …but the fat from the bacon prevents the chicken from becoming dry. Serve “gravy” over mashed potatoes or rice and you have yourself one easy, delicious, “comfy food” meal.

Place 6 slices of center cut bacon in a pan and cook 3/4 of the way so its still pliable enough to wrap around chicken. Lay 2 paper towels on a plate and place bacon on top to cool and drain. Leave bacon renderings in pan.

Add 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and 1 cup of sour cream to bacon renderings in pan and stir. If you don’t like cream of chicken soup or are gluten free {hand raised!} use 1 1/4 cup heavy cream and 1 1/4 cup chicken broth.

Wrap chicken breasts in bacon and place in Crock Pot. I recommend buying organic chicken because it’s so much more tender…you can probably see that it’s smaller in size and not beefed up on hormones ;)

Pour gravy mixture over top of chicken. Slow cook for 6 hours.

I had to take a photo of this chicken up close….see how moist it is? And the flavor! WOWSA! Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Thank you Janelle – I love this! I make something  similiar to this in my Crock Pot only I use Cream of Mushroom soup with sour cream and I add flour to thicken it and… I skipped the step of frying the bacon… {evidence of my lazy bones – that’s why you are the recipe gal here :)  lol!}  Love it!
