Chicken Bites Bacon Wrapped
Many people would agree that the best chicken recipes are the ones that involve bacon. Here is a delicious recipe for Chicken Bites Wrapped in Bacon. Sounds pretty good right? Loaded with protein and full of B12 AND B6 vitamins, chicken breast recipes are a great way to get some of the nutrients you need to be healthy. It's recommended that people who are vegan or vegetarian take a supplement of the B12 that is usually found in meat sources, but if you eat meat chicken is a good source for it. The other great thing is that since these bacon wrapped chicken bites are small, they make for a great finger food for kids, parties and other events that you need a little appetizer for. Otherwise, you could totally throw them on a salad and use the Parsley Herb Butter as a base for a salad dressing and make a full meal out of it. Enjoy and savour the flavour.***
Makes about 24 bites
This is a printable recipe.
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 16oz. package of bacon
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
*Optional: Parsley Herb Butter for piped garnish
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
+ 1 Tablespoon finely chopped parsley, stirred into soften butter and put into a piping bag
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a baking rack onto the foil that you can put the bacon wrapped chicken onto to keep it from sitting in pan directly. Set aside.
Rinse the chicken breasts in cold water. Pat dry.
Cut the breasts into about 24 bite size pieces.
Cut the bacon strips into thirds.
Wrap each piece of chicken with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Have a shallow bowl set beside you to place each one into for now.
In a small bowl, stir together the Dijon mustard, honey, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Use a pastry brush to coat each of the bites. As you coat them, place them onto the baking rack and leave space between them.
Place into the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes
until bacon is browned and chicken is cooked through completely.
Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.
*Optional; Pipe on a little parsley herb butter.
*Note: If you like really crispy well done bacon, you can pre-cook the bacon in a frying pan until it is half way done before wrapping it around the chicken.
