Main Dish Monday: Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Heyyy there! I had been telling myself for the longest that I have to start cooking again. A couple of reasons why...1). It cuts down on me going to fast food restaurants...2). I can save a few dollars....3). I deserve a cooked meal sometimes.....4). I don't need to add any extra weight to this waist of mine. So, I said for the new year I will try and cook at least 1-2 days a week. Then I stalked Pintrest for an easy and simple recipe that's where I found a recipe for...Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken.

The original recipe called for:

                                            4 chicken breasts cut in thirds (approx 10-12 pieces)
                                            Bacon Slices
                                            Salt and Pepper
                                            Garlic Powder
                                            Chili Powder
                                            Brown Sugar

I altered the recipe just slightly. The only thing I didn't use was the chili powder or table salt because I didn't have any in my seasoning cabinet and I purchased the chicken breast already cut because I didn't need as many cutlets.

I washed and seasoned the chicken, cut the bacon in half and wrapped it around the chicken, roll it in the brown sugar and placed the chicken on a greased baking dish then baked on 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the bacon is brown and crisp.

I neglected to take a pic of me rolling the meat in the brown sugar...**sigh** but you can see the brown sugar on the chicken above.

As you see I served mine with a cheesy baked potato and green beans. This was a very delicious meal and simple to make.

Main Dish Mondays will be a new series on the blog. Shout-out to my niece LaTiesa for coming up with this idea for the blog.

How often during the week do you cook?


  1. Bobbie, this meal looks delicious and I'm not a bacon eater. I've been trying to cook more. I've been trying out Blue Apron which I saw a post for on another bloggers site and I have really been enjoying it. I'm gonna check out Pinterest for some meal inspiration. Great post. Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Kizzy! When I tell you I don't cook...I really don't. I'm trying to do better this year. I've never heard of blue apron...I gotta try it out. Thanks for stopping by. 😊

  2. Thankfully, I still live with my mom, so she currently does all the cooking. When I was in college and had my own apartment, I hated cooking and missed having my meal plan, lol. I don't eat pork bacon (or any pork at all) but your meal looks so scrumptious, especially that cheesy baked potato! Mmm. Can't wait to see what you cook up next Monday!

  3. I swear bacon wrapped food is taking over the world! It's also good on asparagus. That baked potato looks amazing. Nice blog! Xo
