Slow Cooker Bacon-Wrapped Apple Barbecue Chicken (YUM)

This recipe speaks to me on so many levels! It has your protein, your fruit and the ever important BACON! I know this will be devoured in my house. Okay, no more drooling back to the belt factory!

With only a few ingredients and even fewer steps, this just might be the easiest slow-cooker recipe ever!

Ingredients:  chick recipe for blog

  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1-2 apples, peeled and grated
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6-8 slices of bacon


1. In a small bowl, combine barbecue sauce, grated apple, and lemon juice.

2. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each chicken breast half.

3. Place wrapped chicken in a greased 4-5 quart slow cooker and top with BBQ sauce mixture.

4. Set to low and cook for 8 hours.

The show must go on!

The ABC Kids Show, that is…

Here we are a week away from the show and I feel like we still have so much to do to get our kids belts display tradeshow worthy! I am a bit of a procrastinator, I know this, but is it my fault that everything important has to be done last minute? NOOoooo, well ok, maybe it is partly my fault, but I am blaming it mostly on the dog. Mainly because she can’t argue with me and even if she could, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be a very compelling argument, I mean, really what reasoning skills does a dog have? Plus, if I didn’t have to constantly take her for walks or endlessly pull bits of soggy chewed paper from her mouth, then I would have much more time on my hands to do actual tradeshow type work.

Current to do list…

  • Finalize Booth Layout
  • Layout & Print Promo Sheets
  • Take a nap
  • Lose my mind
  • Make sure we have enough product to completed to display everything
  • Finish unpacking my house so I can finally find Bugs brush and no longer have to comb her hair with a plastic fork
  • Finish cleaning out the old house so as to ensure the return of our security deposit
  • Pack for Tradeshow
  • And on and on and on…

Aside from all of that, we are super excited about being involved in the ABC Kids show and really are working day and night to get everything perfect. We will be unveiling some exciting new patterns for our original Dapper Snappers line as well as showcasing the Big Kids Belts, the Dapper Snappers for Moms and Mitten Clips. The show is in Louisville, KY this year so we could go and visit Churchill Downs on our off time (ha ha ha). I am ready for it to be here so I can see the turn out, meet some great new people and feed off of the energy that always goes along with these types of events.

If you are planning on attending, come see us at booth #2433!

Ok, now I have to get back to work….

I Just Don’t Know What to Say

Tuesday, December 7, 2010 @ 10:12 PM

It’s been a long, frustrating day and I know I need to post every day, so I’m posting. I just don’t know what to say. And even if I did, I don’t have the energy. The kids sucked all the energy out of me in the 3 hours they were home. So…what to write about…hmmm….

Well, an interesting thing happened today. Every once in a while we spend just a little bit too much time on the phone with our Canadian distributor (whom we love!!!) and she inevitably shares an idea for a product they would love for us to make for them to sell. This is why we ended up manufacturing Mitten Clips. She said that as long as we have clips for pants that have no belt loops, would we mind making Mitten Clips. Of course we’ll do it!

So today she gave us another project idea for us to brainstorm about. It seems that our little Toddler Belt factory is just going to keep growing, manufacturing more and more products. We’ve branded ourselves well enough that our Canadian distributor will sell anything with our name on it. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty cool.

The best part is that we are just going to continue to grow. Dapper Snappers is not just Kids Belts anymore. Have you seen our website lately?

Take a look around and tell me what you think.
