Bacon and Honey Glazed Chicken Fingers

This is super simple and has bacon!  How can you go wrong?  Making it easy and tasty on a Monday night is  the way to go.

1 pound boneless chicken breasts
Thin bacon slices
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. mustard
3 tbs. honey
Lemon juice
Kosher salt and pepper

Cut the chicken breasts in thin strips. Preheat oven to 425.

Combine brown sugar and honey with 2 tsp. of your favorite mustard. Squeeze in some lemon juice. Wrap the bacon around the chicken strips.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Place them in a roasting tray or on a cookie sheet.  You can line the tray or sheet with some foil for easy clean up. 

Roll the chicken bites in the brown sugar mixture. Bake them in a preheated oven at 425 degrees F. for 10 to 13 minutes until the bacon is crispy.

As soon as one side is done, flip them over and sprinkle with any remaining brown sugar mixture. Put them back in the oven for another 10 to 13 minutes, until the other side is crispy as well.  Keep an eye on them.

Variation – You can use as an appetizer or as your meat dish for dinner.  You may also cut them up when they are fully baked and put them on top of a fresh green salad.  Try it with a simple lettuce and grape salad.  Serve with a simple honey mustard dressing on the side.
Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing/Dipping Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup prepared mustard
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Pinch of salt and pepper

Put ingredients into a mason jar and shake.  You can store it in the refrigerator for several weeks.   This also can be used as a nice dipping sauce for the fingers.
