Bacon-Wrapped Honey Mustard Chicken Strips

13 Sep

You’re going to want to bookmark, pin, print, or save this one kids.  This is by far one of the easiest recipes I’ve made and I know I will be adding this into my weekly rotation.  It’s also Paleo for all of you cavepeople out there.  Even though my attempt at Paleo ended up as a big faleo, I still found a bunch of recipes I can’t wait to try.


Bacon-Wrapped Honey Mustard Chicken Strips (original recipe from Paleo Cupboard)

Bacon-Wrapped-Chicken-Tenders-2

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut lengthwise into strips
  • 6 oz. bacon (I used regular cut hickory smoked)
  • 1/3 c. raw organic honey
  • 1/2 c. stone ground mustard
  • 3 T. apple cider vinegar
  • sea salt, ground pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper

First, preheat the oven to 400*F and prepare a pan.  I suggest lining a sheet pan with tin foil and then placing a rack on top of it.  I also suggest putting about 1/8″ of water in the sheet pan because the bacon grease will drip down and the water will prevent your house from smelling like it’s about to catch on fire.  Season the chicken with sea salt, ground pepper, and garlic powder.  Then, take pieces of bacon and wrap it around the chicken tenders like so:

Combine the honey, stone ground mustard, a dash of cayenne pepper, and the apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Brush the glaze onto the chicken and then cook them for about 13 minutes.  Then, flip the chicken and glaze the opposite side and bake for an additional 13 minutes.  Don’t be scared if the edges of the bacon are getting crispy or even burn, that’s fine!  If things get out of hand, you can always remove the extra burned pieces! It’s worth the mini panic attack, I swear…
