Our prehistoric kin probably never ate anything like this, but there is a reason they gave up hunting and gathering—pigs and chickens are delish! This in-the-pot recipe will leave you licking the bottom for scraps. I throw this together a few hours before dinner.


  • 2 lb chicken breast
  • 4 oz, chopped bacon
  • 1 sliced white onion
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp ground chipotle powder
  • 1 salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place uncooked bacon pieces in the Crock-Pot. Stir bacon in among cubed chicken, onion, and seasonings.
  2. If you like, give it a light olive oil glaze. It will taste good and help keep your chicken from sticking to the pot.
  3. Cook your bird on high for 3-4 hours.
  4. Top with your chipotle sauce upon serving.
