Not for the Vegans

I only have a minute, because Kurt is off at a baseball game and so I am going to watch movies with some of the other Wives. But I wanted to tell you guys about this amazing dinner I made yesterday. You are probably rolling your eyes, and thinking, "Do I really have to listen to her bragging about her cooking??" First of all, you won't be listening- you will be reading. And second of all, I have only made 6 meals for my husband since we have been married. And three of them have been the same thing. And one of them was sandwitches. I'm VERY inexperienced when it comes to cooking, and so to keep me motivated, I am telling you about my successes. Then you can fawn all over me, and encourage me, and stop rolling you eyes already! (That was to you Amber. And you too, McCall)

So here it is. I made Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps. And it was amazing. Go make this right now.

Annie made this for us when we lived with her for a month before The Big Move. It was so good- but then most of her meals are, you know? But here's the thing- it was just as good when I made it! Which means it will be great when you make it too. It's a Paula Dean recipe.

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

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 are welcome!!

1. I'm a little jealous that you went to the girls night to watch Audrey Hepburn movies. (We went camping with our ward). How was it?

2. This looks amazing. I will continue to roll my eyes at you until you stop pretending to not be crafy and to not be able to cook. :) You are amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'm sure Tannon will thank you for it as well. Love Paula Dean.

Helena, this sounds delicious except for the disgusting CHICKEN part. YUCKORAMA. Birds are gross. Now if this was Pork or something, now YU-U-U-U-M-Y!
