I Made: Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken

My next recipe I tried out was the Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken. This took some work but was worth it. I really like my bacon crisp and I cooked it too long which made the chicken dry. Next time I will cook in the microwave for abit.

My Prep

The Done....

Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken

4 chicken breasts cut in thirds (12 pieces)

Bacon slices

salt and pepper to taste

garlic powder

chili powder

brown sugar

Cut each breast into 3 pieces, season all the chicken with the spices, then wrap a bacon slice around each piece, roll in brown sugar and place into an oven proof dish....make sure you have some olive oil in the dish too, like 2 or 3 tablespoons is fine {I skipped this since I grilled them. I honestly think you could coat your dish with nonstick cooking spray instead to save a few calories}.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is nice and brown and crispy. Delicious served with mashed potatoes with some of the gravy from the chicken drizzled on top.

**Also great on the grill! No juices to drizzle on anything, but still delicious!

I made: Chili Spaghetti

I have gotten into making recepies on Pintrest. One I just made was the Chili Spaghetti from Joyfull Home Making.  Easy to make and even my husband liked this one.

If you can believe it only has hamburger, spaghetti sauce, kidney beans and chili powder. The hamburger is cooked with garlic & onions. Yummy.
