Yes, this is turkey bacon, but it crisped up and caramelized in the oven and was absolutely delicious.
I was looking for a good recipe for bacon wrapped chicken, and a lot of them included brown sugar and chili powder. I didn't have any brown sugar, so I substituted honey. I wound up using way less sweetener than other recipes called for, and this still came out delicious!
Turkey Bacon Wrapped Chicken
3/4 lbs chicken breast, cut into 4 tenders (my tenders were 3 ounces each)
4 slices turkey bacon
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon chili powder
pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
2. Mix the honey, water, chili powder, and salt in a small bowl (until honey has dissolved).
3. Wrap each chicken tender with a piece of bacon. Dip them in the honey mixture (get it all in there!) then place on the baking pan.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through.
