Asian Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Elizabeth Handlon


Pulled my chicken breasts out of the fridge, and saw the bacon laying there, and then I was just inspired. I had some bacon wrapped shrimp at a restaurant called Scampy's in Florida, and that's what inspired the flavors for this dish. I just started mixing stuff together, and voila, DELICIOUS! My family was RAVING over this chicken. What a great way to turn boring ol' grilled chicken into a family favorite!

Directions Step-By-Step

If you use chicken breasts make sure to cut them in about 1/2 the size, maybe even quarter, by splitting them and then cutting in half.
Wrap chicken in bacon strips and place in heated pan w/olive oil seam side down.
Fry on both sides till bacon is almost cooked. ( this step may be skipped if you prefer to just bake it, I just love fried bacon? lol )
Meanwhile...Mix bbq, mustard, soy sauce, garlic, sesame seed oil, ginger, and sugar in a small bowl. ( I don't have measurements for these, I just added them as I went and tasted till it was really can't mess this up :)
place chicken in a square pan (depending on how much you have decided to cook-the tighter space between the chicken the better for the sauce), baste w/sauce and save remaining for the end. Place the pan in a preheated 350 deg. oven and cook for approx 20-30 minutes. When chicken is done, pour remaining sauce over chicken and heat for a minute or two, or save to pour over at the chicken at the table.
