bringing your tribe together to enjoy a meal, even if it means preparing that
meal with one free hand and someone pulling at your leg. Not only do I hope to offer delicious, easy
to prepare recipes, but I’ll also show you how getting your kids involved in
the process can make the meal that much more rewarding for you and those eating
My annual Candy Kayne Christmas Party is fast approaching. I’ve had great success in the past with bacon inspired bites, so I decided to keep the theme alive and create the Chicken Bacon Bite.
Because my Christmas Party is the weekend after Thanksgiving, I had to get a start on the appetizers early. So I actual usually make these about 3 weeks before the party and pop them in the freezer. Then I thaw them, cook, and serve hot out of the oven.
2 large chicken breast, cubed
7 sliced of bacon cut into thirds
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup maple syrup
2 TBs fresh rosemary chopped
¼ tsp of cayenne pepper
Wrap the bacon around the chicken breast and secure it with a toothpick. Mix the remaining ingredients to make the marinade. Add all the ingredients in a gallon size freezer bag and toss. They can be cooked 1-2 hours later or placed in a freezer. If you decide to freeze make sure you thaw out 2-3 days prior to cooking.
You can make double the marinade and serve on the side as a dipping sauce. This recipe can also be made with pork tenderloin as well. Enjoy!
Makes 20-24 pieces
