Flashback & Foodie Friday



Time for Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet's Flashback Friday and Gollums Foodie Friday...love it when I have a recipe that links the two together...






Don't know where the week went..seems like it should only be Tuesday! Since I need to make an appie for a birthday party Saturday I decided to make one of my favorites that I posted earlier in the year on a now defunct blog.. Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps. They are really yummy and everyone seems to love them - they never last very long!




Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps
Ingredients
· 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
· 1 (1-pound) package sliced bacon
· 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
· 2 tablespoons chili powder

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Cut each bacon slice into thirds. Wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Stir together brown sugar and chili powder. Dredge wrapped chicken in mixture. Coat a rack and broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken wrap on rack in broiler pan. Bake 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

You can put these in a crock pot on low to keep them warm during the party!

Just to give you all a HEAD'S UP.... I will be hosting a Mothers Day Event the weekend of May 9th. I would love for all to join in and show us any photos of your mother and grandmothers with some of their favorite recipes you always remember when you think of them! I'll have Mr. Linky posted on the Friday before...maybe, if I can get it figured out!

Barb, great Foodie and Flashback Friday.

I remember when you posted the Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps on the "now defunct blog". :)

I'm really glad you re-posted your pic and recipe. I didn't copy and paste it when it was originally posted because I assumed it would always be available from the "now defunct blog".

Great recipe ... I hope your blog remains un"defunct".

Sometimes, I would rather eat a bunch of appetizers rather than a 'real' dinner! These look like something that I would enjoy eating by the plate full! Your Mother's Day post sounds delightful. I'll try to remember to post! Nancy

SusanQ said...

I'm also glad you reposted the recipe, Barb. There's nothing better than a great Flashback!

Looking forward to your Mother's Day tribute party.

Kathleen said...

LOL, Barb! You have a way with words..
I am glad you reposted it for the same reason Cynthia stated, I didn't copy it before the end...
Happy Friday!

Barb, these look really, really, REALLY good! Oh, I wish I had some right now!

WOW!! These do look wonderful!

Gollum said...

I'm having a major droll problem right now. I love bacon, and these wraps have my name on them. I will look forward to the Mother's Day party.

My apologies...The post I had on my blog was an old Foodie post. I didn't think anyone would be visiting until tomorrow. So I thought I could wait to post the new one before I went to bed. All that to say I hope you can come by sometime to see the new one. Sorry for the mix up.

I agree these would be the perfect appetizer to serve at any special event or holiday.

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

I bet people go crazy when you serve these and don't have to be kept warm long:) Oh how I wish I'd saved my post with the pictures of me, my mom and daughter for your Mother's Day event!

Debbie at Mountain Breaths said...

Barb, thanks for the flashback. I loved when you posted them before, and since I know our sons would like them, they will be on our Father's day appie menu.

I have something very special for your Mother's day tribute :-)

Amy said...

These look wonderful and addicting!

Joyce said...

Marsha said...

I remember this "super" day with this "super" appetizer. Someday I hope to try it.

Oh I bet these delicious little nibbles dissappear as fast as you can put them out. That's the kind of stuff I like to serve.
