Bacon Wrapped Barbecue Chicken Tenders

What you’ll need:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2C barbecue sauce
  • 5-6 slices of bacon, cut in half

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil, set aside.

Slice chicken breast into thin strips (roughly 3″x1″ and 1/4-1/2″ thick). If they’re too thick, they will take longer to cook and your bacon could burn.

Add barbecue sauce to a small bowl, coat chicken strips in sauce one at a time. After coating in sauce, wrap with a 1/2 piece of bacon as tight as you can. Use a toothpick to secure, if desired. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining chicken strips and bacon slices.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through. *Barbecue sauce may begin to burn to your foil, that’s okay… just be prepared for it to happen.

Remove from the oven and enjoy hot. Serve with additional barbecue sauce or other dipping sauces if desired.

Serves 2, more if just snacking.

Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese with Caramelized Onions and Apples

What you’ll need:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 1 apple, a tart red (Fuji apple) or a tart green (Granny Smith)
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 slices white sandwich bread (Udi’s Gluten Free White Bread)
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese (Horizon Organic White Cheddar Cheese)
  • butter, softened

How to make it:

1. Cook the Bacon: Preheat oven to 400°F. Cover a baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. Lay bacon flat on the cooling rack and place the baking sheet in the oven. Cook for 20 minutes until the bacon is crisps and cooked through.

or

Place 4 bacon slices on a microwaveable plate, cover with a paper towel, and place in the microwave. Cook on high for 4 minutes or until crisp and cooked through.

2. With a sharp knife, peel and thinly slice the onion. Slice the apple in half, remove the core, and slice into thin slices as well. In a saute pan, melt a 1/2 teaspoon butter over medium heat and add sliced onions, apples, and brown sugar. Saute for 10 minutes until browned and caramelized.

3. Next, prepare the bread by lightly spreading softened butter on one side of each slice.

4. Melt a teaspoon of butter (or use cooking spray) in a non-stick skillet over medium heat (you can use the same skillet that the onions and apples were cooked in as long as it is non-stick). Crack the eggs gently into the pan and sprinkle each egg with a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute the eggs until the whites are almost cooked through and no longer transparent, about 3 minutes. With a spatula, carefully flip the eggs, turn off heat, and remove the pan from the burner. Allow the eggs to sit for 30 seconds and then remove. This recipe is meant to have a golden runny yolk but if you are not a fan of runny yolks just cook the eggs a minute longer.

5. Heat a large skillet or griddle on medium heat. Build the sandwiches by placing a slice of cheese on a non-buttered side of bread. Next, lay the egg on top of the cheese followed by 2 strips of bacon, a spoonful of caramelized onion and apples, and finish off with another slice of cheese. Top with a slice of bread with the buttered side facing up. Place the sandwiches on the griddle for 2 minutes until the bread is golden brown and then carefully flip and cook for another minute or two until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden.
