Tonight I tried a recipe that my gluten-free friend Lisa sent me. It’s actually a Paula Dean Recipe 😉
It’s called Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps. It’s supposed to be an appetizer but I called it dinner.
Broiling pan and rack
Nonstick spray (I used coconut)
You need 4 chicken breasts (cut into 1 inch cubes)
1 pound package of bacon (cut into 3rds). I used Turkey Bacon
2/3 cup of Brown Sugar (although I think 1/3 cup would be okay. I had plenty of the mixture left over. If you change it to 1/3 also change the amount of Chili powder you use.)
2 tablespoons of Chili Powder
Mixture: Combine brown sugar and chili powder in bowl and stir
Wrap bacon around the cubed chicken and stick with a toothpick
Dredge (run the picked chicken and bacon through mixture. I also sprinkled the rest on top.) through mixture.
Preheat oven to 350 F
Spray pan and rack with nonstick spray
Put chicken wraps on pan (optional sprinkle mixture on top)
Put in oven for 30-35 min or whenever bacon is crisp. I checked after 20 minutes.
Amazing goodness! They were so good! They had just enough sweetness with the smallest bit of kick. I think that even my spicy intolerant sister could handle these.
Go ahead and give them a try for yourself. I bet you are gonna love them 😉
