Crockpot Chicken and Bacon Directions:
Add all ingredients except cheese and bacon to crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is fully cooked. The chicken should shred easily on its own when you touch it with a fork.
About one hour before the chicken will be done, cook the bacon in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cook the bacon on tin foil to make cleanup easier.
Crumble crispy bacon into cooked chicken and add shredded cheese.
Mix together in the crockpot and simmer or keep on warm until the cheese is blended and all of the ingredients are warm.
I serve this crockpot bacon and chicken over lettuce or in lettuce wraps for a ketogenic low carb meal. If you are not on a low carb diet, you can serve this over toasted sandwich buns, rice, or base of your choice. It’s a versatile meal for sure!
