Bacon-wrapped apple BBQ chicken

I love this recipe and I agree that you will, too.  This fabulous crock-pot chicken recipe was found on 5dollardinners.com.  Besides its wonderful sweet and tangy taste, a great feature of this recipe is that it is so economical.  Enjoy the following recipe and check out that site for some more scrumptious five dollar dinners.  You can also find the picture to this recipe there as well--we ate ours so fast that I didn't have time to take a picture!

Bacon-wrapped apple BBQ chicken  (serves 4)

3-4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1-2 apples, peeled and grated
1 lemon, juiced
6-8 slices bacon

2-3 sweet potatoes and 1 cup chopped frozen broccoli (for side dishes)

1.  In small bowl, combine BBQ sauce with grated apple and lemon juice.
2.  Place chicken breasts in base of crock pot, pour BBQ/apple mixture over the chicken.  Wrap two pieces of bacon around each chicken breast.  Set to low and cook for 8 hours.
3.  Slit sweet potatoes with knife or vent with fork.  Bake sweet potatoes at 350 degrees for 1 hour in baking dish with 1/3 inch water.  Cover with foil.  Remove and let cool about 10 minutes.  Peel skins off of the potato and mash.  Serve with cinnamon and butter if you like.
