Bacon-Swiss BBQ Chicken (Crockpot)

It’s time for another super delicious and easy recipe for summer! I have been looking at this recipe since I first got my “Super-Fast Slow Cooking” cookbook by Gooseberry Patch back in November. Whenever I go to Carl’s Jr, I always get their Charbroiled Chicken Club, which has my two favorite things ever. Bacon, and Swiss cheese. So what if it’s all going to my butt, it tastes AMAZING and I just can’t help myself. So I invited Carrie, Jeff, and my two nephews over for another Sunday dinner so I had an excuse to try this recipe out.

Now, if anyone is wondering how easy this recipe is, it’s the simplest thing I’ve ever made.



You put 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a crockpot, top with a bottle of bbq sauce, and cook on low for 8-9 hours.

At some point while it’s cooking, you fry up 6 slices of bacon and make them extra crispy (or more if you are hungry and decide that bacon is the perfect thing to snack on since you’re being taunted by the aroma of bbq chicken coming from your crockpot).

Then 15 minutes before the chicken is done, top each breast with 1 slice of bacon, split in half, and 1 slice of swiss cheese. Turn the crockpot to high and cook for 15 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted.


Easy and delicious.

Serve with a garden salad and dinner rolls. Make sure to save some of the bbq sauce from the crockpot to serve over the chicken!

What’s your favorite meal for summertime?
