Maple Bacon Chicken

I love finding a recipe I haven’t cooked in years! Since my husband is still doing low-carb I’ve been digging deep into my recipe box to find recipes without carbs and trying to keep things interesting. This is a recipe I had found when I first moved to Charleston and was cooking for my husband pretty much for the first time. It is so easy but the flavors of the bacon, BBQ sauce, and maple syrup are so good!! I know I found this somewhere on All Recipes, but I tried going back to find the source and I can’t find it anywhere! I did come up with the quantities of the ingredients though…to my horror when I looked at my recipe card I only wrote down the ingredients, not how much of each I need. Not sure what I was thinking!

On a side note, I am so thrilled it is Friday. I am really looking forward to not having any work obligations this weekend! Hopefully I can just relax, catch up on my shows, and do some Fall cooking!

Ingredients (Serves 2)
– 1/2 cup maple syrup
– 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (I used a Hickory Brown Sugar)
– 4 strips of bacon
– 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
– 2 chicken breasts (or tenderloins)
1.  Preheat oven to 375. On a baking sheet, place the bacon strips and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes until crispy. Pat grease off and cut into small bite-size pieces.
2. Butterfly chicken breast, place bacon on chicken and roll up. Place in casserole dish.
3. In a bowl, combine the syrup, BBQ sauce, and the brown sugar.over chicken. Pour over chicken and bake at 375 for 30 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
