Slow Cooker Bacon & Chicken

Slow Cooker Bacon & Chicken

I had a bunch of uncooked bacon left over from when I made the avocado bacon explosion , and I wanted to use it in a dish that didn’t involve frying more bacon! And so I turned to the slow cooker. But what would it go well with in the slow cooker, I pondered…chicken!

I always find chicken breast rather dry (I wasn’t even all that impressed with the white meat of Thomas Keller’s Poulet Roti!), and so I thought the fat from the bacon would help moisten the chicken. I was not wrong. The bacon (and the olive oil) kept the chicken moist and flavorful!

Ingredients

  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 10 slices of bacon
  • 2 tablespoons thyme (dried)
  • 1 tablespoon oregano (dried)
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary (dried)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil (2 tablespoons for the slow cooker and 3 tablespoons after cooking)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
