Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken

So I was standing in front of the stove and trying to figure out what to make with the chicken, I usually have a menu but for some reason I somehow skipped this day. I don't know why, I tend to do crazy stuff like that all the time, like the one time where I made the menus for two weeks or so I thought but ended up 3 days short LOL

Anyway, this was a spur of the moment, throw a bunch of things together kinda thing but my husband and children were over the moon with how good it was, I have never heard that many ooh's and aah's.

So good!

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken


Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken

4 chicken breasts cut in thirds (12 pieces)
Bacon slices
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder
chili powder
brown sugar

Cut each breast into 3 pieces, season all the chicken with the spices,

then wrap a bacon slice around each piece, roll in brown sugar and place into an oven proof dish....make sure you have some olive oil in the dish too, like 2 or 3 tablespoons is fine.

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is nice and brown and crispy.

I served mine with mashed potatoes and spooned some of the gravy from the chicken on top. Oh Lord, I am salivating just remembering.

I was out of bacon, but the other flavors sounded so good, I made it without. The chicken was fabulous!!! Now I must buy bacon and try again!!
Thanks for a delicious recipe.

Sandra, this looks delicious, and not at all hard. You're speaking my language :)

Lynn said...

I did this yesterday for my two daughters and they loved it, it's so unusual. Thank you for your blog, I'll be reading it often :)

Martha said...

I just had to stop back over to tell you - when I made this I used 5 chicken out of a big family pack of 15. I had planned on a different chicken recipe for tonight but hubby and the kids begged for more!
I made a huge batch tonight for our main dish meal. They have already been back for a late night snack and it's all gone!
Thank you for this very different and delicious recipe! I believe we have definitely found a regular family favorite :-)

I found this site from Sandra at Diary of a stay at home Mom. My wife Kat at Heart 2 Heart is showing me some new sites to visit. Some of these recipe's look absolutely amazing! We will be stopping by to try more.

Thank you for sharing and Keep the Faith!

Made these today, great! Will serve them again, not only for dinner but for company tidbits.

Thank you:)

Bronny said...

Thank you Stitchin Sue for linking me to this blog. I have so many ideas and the family are going to thank me. I so need to try this chicken recipe - tomorrow night perhaps?

Bronny said...

Just up from the dinner table and this dish got a resounding thumbs up from the family - despite me not measuring how much chilli powder went into the mix. (I might use a smidge less next time) I cut my fillets only in half, but had the thought of cutting into even smaller sections and serving this up as bite size entree's.
This recipe goes into my little black book....thank you!

Tina Leigh said...

In my opinion it is hard to make chicken breasts taste good...they dry out to easy but I tried this last night & it was off the chain!!! Thanks for the recipe.

Annie Jones said...

I made this for supper this evening. It was delicious! Thanks for posting it.

Tammy T. said...

Tried it last night and it was great!
I took the long route though. I had to cut my breast meat from the bone. Then I didn't have olive oil so I used a little vegetable oil with about 2tblsp of butter for flavor. And then I didn't have garlic powder so I cut some fresh up and sprinkled it around the pan before I placed the meat in. One key factor for me is the bacon. It has to be "Hickory Smoked". Sugar cured or any blend of curing just don't cut it.
This really was fantastic!
I'm so glad I came across your site. I've been running out of ideas for quite a few years now.
Thanks for sharing.

Mary said...

I was sent here by @TracyDeLuca on Twitter when I was looking for something to do with chicken breasts. I used whole breasts but they weren't at all large. Seasoned them a bit different, but wrapped in bacon with brown sugar and it was a delight!! Thanks for the recipe. Totally enjoyed it - you can't go wrong with this recipe.

Stephanie said...

This looks and sounds incredible! I am adding this to my menu plan for next week after I hit up the Amish market for the bacon. My husband is going to be in dinner heaven when I serve this up!. Thank you so much for sharing.

CLOUDFAIRY said...

Thank you for this recipe. I made it tonight and it was fabulous! The sauce was to die for! Only problem was the cleanup, the sauce burned and stuck to the pan a bit around the edges, so next time I will line with foil.
I served with garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli coleslaw, YUM!

Jennifer said...

Made this for tonight's dinner. Oh my word it was great! Found this site on pinterest and will be looking up others on here. My picky 2yr old even liked it and he doesn't eat much meat. I thought I was heavy handed on the chili powder and I couldn't even tell it was there. I shared this on my Facebook as well. Friends will be making it too thank you!

Sarah E. said...
