This delicious Slow Cooker Maple Bacon Chicken Recipe is also a crockpot freezer meal! I made this in an afternoon when making 15 crockpot freezer meals to freeze and later cook in my crockpot. With the start of the school year activities in full swing I needed a bunch of prep ahead meals that I could make. This is the perfect recipe for back-to-school. It is a huge money and time saver in the kitchen.
So I got busy creating recipes so I could take an afternoon and have meals ready to go for my family. This chicken crockpot recipe has been my son Cole’s favorite so far out of the slow cooker meals and will be added to my regular menu meals. I served the delicious Slow Cooker Maple Bacon Chicken Freezer Meal with baked sweet potatoes and sweet peas. I also used a 6 QT slow cooker for the recipe because I did not want the chicken to touch one another.
Slow Cooker Maple Bacon Chicken Recipe is so good and it’s an easy freeze slow cooker supper that everyone will love. My boys loved this chicken so much that they had seconds and there was no leftovers at all. The chicken is so tender and will just melt in your mouth. We will be definitely adding this to our list of favorite crockpot recipes!
