Okay you guys, these bacon wrapped chicken bites taste like something they would serve at Fogo de Choã – they’re that tasty! And, you know what else? They only call for three ingredients. When I made this the other night, I served a veggie feta salad on the side. I love making this salad on a chilly day – it is served warm and all you need to do is chop up the veggies, put them on a baking sheet and pop it in the oven. Once it’s done baking, sprinkle a little feta on top! It was super easy to prep the veggies beforehand so all I needed to do was throw everything on the pan. I am all about time saving hacks! What is your go-to recipe when time isn’t on your side?

This yummy recipe is healthy and kid-friendly!

ingredients
  • 1 Chicken Breast
  • 1 Package Bacon
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • ¼ Cup Feta Cheese
  • 2 Cups Green Beans
  • 1/4 Cup Sliced Red Pepper
  • ½ Chopped Red Onion
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon Balsamic
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Honey
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Peel the skin off the sweet potatoes and roughly chop into ½ thick pieces. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Trim the ends of the green beans and chop them into smaller pieces (we did two cuts per green bean). Add the green beans to the baking sheet, along with the chopped red onion and red pepper.
  3. Sprinkle the veggies on the baking sheet with half of the garlic powder, paprika and ground parsley. Toss and sprinkle with the other half of the spices.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
  5. While the veggies are baking, halfway cook the bacon on a grill pan. The bacon should still be flabby and easy to bend.
  6. Cut the chicken into 1-inch thick bites. Cut each piece of bacon in half and wrap it around the chicken bites, securing with a toothpick.
  7. Place each bacon chicken bite on a broiler pan and sprinkle each piece with brown sugar.
  8. Remove the veggies from the oven, turn the temperature down to 400 degrees and insert the broiler pan. Allow the bites to cook for 15-20 minutes, turning each piece over halfway through.
  9. Transfer the veggies to a plate or bowl and sprinkle with feta. When ready, remove the bacon wrapped chicken bites from the oven. To make the dressing, mix the olive oil, honey, balsamic and Dijon mustard. Pour over the salad or serve on the side.
  10. Eat and enjoy!
