These chicken and bacon bites were so yummy! I was looking for something VERY quick and easy to throw together for dinner, but something I thought CC might go nuts over.
We like chicken. We LOVE times a million bacon. I like mustard, CC doesn't. I figured two out of three weren't bad and went for it. On the plus side, he seems to be getting over his aversion to mustard and I give all credit to this recipe. We have growth, people!
I bought chicken tenders already cut that way (half of the dang recipe is cutting chicken breasts down to size- I deal with raw meat as little as possible, so I said forget that!) and wrapped each one with a piece of bacon.
I didn't even measure the sauce ingredients, just eyeballed it. A little too much since I ended up with a TON. You throw in some coarse mustard, some honey, a little fresh lemon juice, and some salt. That's it. Whisk that goodness together and slap it on one side of the bacon-wrapped chicken. Bake for about 13 minutes, pull them out and flip 'em over, baste the other side with the same goodness, and bake for another 10 or so minutes. Wa-la!
Fortunately I thought ahead to separate out some dipping sauce (again, since I made a vat of the stuff), so we got to have extra on our chicken. I was concerned the bacon wouldn't be done enough for me since I like really
Another bonus for you healthy folks is it's pretty low-cal! Hubby's been asking for this a lot since I made it the first time. Hopefully soon I can indulge him.
