Easy chicken and bacon recipe
Chicken. Bacon. Both delicious all by themselves, but together?!
Game Day is around the corner and we’ll be going to a potluck at a friend’s house. I was in search of a few good appetizer ideas and I stumbled on this bacon-wrapped chicken bites appetizer from Kraft Foods. Oh my. A few products from Kraft make the flavors in this recipe intense – savory OSCAR MAYER bacon, succulent chicken breast, sharp white cheddar, and a tangy GREY POUPON honey mustard dijon – I HAD to test it out!
Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites Appetizer
Makes 24 bites
- 3 Tbsp. GREY POUPON Savory Honey Mustard, divided
- 2 Tbsp. LEA & PERRINS Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 large boneless skinless chicken breast (6 oz.), cut into 24 pieces
- 8 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cut into thirds
- 4 oz. CRACKER BARREL Vermont Sharp-White Cheddar Cheese, cut into 12 slices
- 24 RITZ Crackers
- 2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
Step 1: Toss chicken in a honey mustard and Worchestershire sauce mixture
To start this chicken bacon recipe, toss your chicken breast pieces in a mixture of 2 tbsp. GREY POUPON Honey Mustard and the LEA & PERRINS Worcestershire Sauce to marinate.
Note: My local store didn’t have the GREY POUPON Honey Mustard, so I tried the Country Dijon mustard and added a little honey.
Step 2: Wrap chicken in bacon
Heat your broiler. Next, roll each piece of chicken into a slice of OSCAR MAYER bacon and secure together with toothpicks.
Step 3: Broil your chicken bacon bites
Place them about 4 inches under your broiler and cook each side for 5 minutes, 10 total. You’ll be flipping these over at the halfway mark.
Step 4: Assemble your chicken and bacon bites appetizer
Heat oven to 350°F, remove toothpicks from the chicken and bacon pieces. Cut cheese slices in half, place crackers on a baking sheet and top each one with a cheese slice. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Top each cracker with chicken, a drop of mustard, and parsley leaves.
Now, take a bite. Oh my, these are such a savory treat! I love the sweet and the salty combo of the bacon and the honey mustard, these are definitely going on my must-have list for entertaining!
