Turkey Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breast

July 19th, 2011 Comments Off

I saw a photo the other day of some grilled pork loin wrapped in bacon and thought to myself “I’d really like to try that.” I realized that I didn’t have any of the necessary proteins to complete a dish like that so I started looking for alternatives. What I found was chicken breast and turkey bacon. I’m not a huge fan of turkey bacon but I figured I’d give it a shot anyway. Needless to say, the results were very light and full of flavor. Here’s the process:

Ingredients
1 lb Chicken breast
12 Strips of Turkey Bacon
1 Onion
1 Green bell pepper
1 cup Italian dressing (of your choice)
1/4 cup Honey
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tbsp Cumin
1 tbsp Onion powder
1 tbsp Celery salt
1/8 cup Olive oil
Black pepper to taste

Directions
-Cut your chicken into 12 like-sized cubes/strips (1″ x 1/2″ x 2″)
-Marinade the chicken in the italian dressing, honey, and garlic powder for a solid 8 hours
-Cut the green bell pepper and onion into 1/2″ x 2″ strips.
-Place 1 chicken piece, 1 green pepper piece, and one onion piece on a strip of bacon and roll up. Use a toothpick to hold it together
-Brush on some olive oil (this will help keep the roll moist during cooking)
-Sprinkle the cumin, onion powder, and celery salt on the roll
-Place on grill over indirect heat. Cook for (about) 8 minutes and then turn over and cook for additional 5-8 minutes until done
-OPTIONAL: add your favorite barbecue sauce after turning rolls.
-Remove from grill and sprinkle some fresh black pepper

  • Looks really good and moreish. I’m just imagining plating up way too many of those and eating them all, nearly at once.

    I always felt that the more you learn the better you are off. That is about anything in life. Which is why I just started my blog. It is on forex markets, and is not only meant to help others learn. But also to keep a visual journal for myself in case I ever get confused. If you have the chance let me know what you think.
