Week 45: Chicken with Apple BBQ Sauce

The Recipe
(Serves 4)
4 chicken breasts
1 package of bacon (~8 slices)
1 cup BBQ sauce
2 apples, peeled and cut into pieces
2 onions, sliced
4tbsp lemon juice
Fresh herbs - e.g. thyme or oregano
Parmesan cheese

Wrap each chicken breast in 2 pieces of bacon and place them in a slow-cooker. Cover with BBQ sace, apples, onions and lemon juice. Stir to mix it all up.
Add honey, paermesan cheese and fresh herbs.

Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours.

Remove the fresh herbs and serve with baked potatoes.

The Verdict
I cooked mine for 5 hours and it was perfect. Wonderfully moist and not dry at all! Excellent!

I liked it, but didn't love it... felt like it was missing something, without being able to say exactly what. DH suggested some herbs like basil or oregano, so I might try that again next time. And perhaps some chili flakes.

Even so, it was still good - I just had the sense that it could've been better.
Edit: I made this again and tried the modifications marked with italics. It improved it a lot! So I'll definitely use that going forward.
