Crock Pot Maple Bacon Dijon Chicken

Today was definitely a crock pot dinner type of day. I wanted something with minimal prep and was ready to go when I got home from my son's open house. Hard to believe my baby is starting pre-school next week! Sigh.....time seems to go by so much faster once you have kids. Anyway, this chicken was a hit. I love the sweet and salty combo of maple and bacon. Serve it over rice and pair it with a nice salad and dinner is served!

Crock Pot Maple Bacon Dijon Chicken
Serves 4
Cal 171, Carbs 6.7, Fat 2.7, Protein 26.5

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used tenderloins)
1/4 cup light maple syrup
6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled (bacon bits work too)
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. cornstarch (optional-but will make for a thicker sauce)
1 tbsp. water

Arrange chicken in bottom of crock pot. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk together syrup and dijon mustard. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 3.5 hours.

Mix the water and cornstarch together and about 30 minutes before serving add in the cornstarch and bacon. 

Spoon sauce over chicken and serve over rice. Enjoy!
