This recipe comes from Valerie Rempel, who is the sister to one of our Adrian’s Staff members, Denise Heizelman. Valerie lives in California, and it is always a treat for all of us when she comes home to visit her family. We love to go for coffee with her! Our daughter, Jenny made this last night and it was delicious! I thought you might like a nice, simple meal that is a little out of the ordinary…after all, one cannot live on Christmas Cookies alone! (We could try!)
Orange Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 slices bacon (we used double , and used the thick, peppery kind!)
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c. orange marmalade
Preheat oven to 375°. (350 if using a glass baking dish) Sprinkle each chicken breast with poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. (Be generous with the poultry seasoning!) Wrap each piece of chicken with a slice of bacon and place in baking dish with bacon ends tucked under the breasts. Melt the butter, Worcestershire sauce and marmalade in the microwave, stirring until combined. Pour evenly over the bacon-wrapped chicken breasts. Bake until chicken is done and the bacon is crisp, about 25-30 minutes. Valerie says “I found a version of this recipe on the internet where it was credited to Peggy Trowbridge Filipone at the About.com website. Il like recipes that are easy to adapt to the size of the crowd, large or small. This is especially nice served with wild rice and a green salad. “
Jenny made this on a cool winter evening…it was delicious! This recipe is featured in our “Between Friends” Cookbook…Available at Adrians.
THANK YOU for sharing the recipe Valerie!
