chipotle, bacon-wrapped chicken

Like I’ve said before, I’m no chef –  but I do love preparing a good meal for my husband, something healthy and delicious! Often I find myself scrounging Pinterest and cookbooks for a good recipe, but it can’t just sound/look good, it has to be easy to prepare too. After working an 8 to 5 day, neither one of us wants to spend all evening in the kitchen. So whenever I stumbled on to this Chipotle, Bacon-wrapped Chicken recipe, I couldn’t resist trying it. I found this recipe in a magazine, years ago actually – and just happened to find it the other dayI’m so glad I did too. It’s going in the books as a favorite.

Chipotle, Bacon-wrapped Chicken
What do you need?
  • 8 tender size pieces of chicken
  • 1 can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 8 strips of bacon (I used turkey bacon)
What do you do?
  • Marinate the chicken tenders in the chipotle peppers and adobo sauce (for about 30 minutes, at least)
  • Wrap 1 strip of bacon around each tender
  • Bake at 400° for 30 minutes*

*The original recipe called for frying the chicken tenders, but I opted for a healthier option.


Avocado and Corn Salsa
What do you need?
  • 1 can of Mexican corn (11 oz.)
  • 1 chopped, chipotle pepper (from the recipe above)
  • 1 diced avocado
  • 1 lime
  • salt (to taste, I like garlic salt)
What do you do?
  • Drain the can of Mexican corn
  • Combine the corn, pepper, and avocado into a bowl
  • Drizzle the salsa with the lime juice (of 1 lime)
  • Serve with the Chipotle, Bacon-wrapped Chicken and enjoy!

We had this duo for dinner last night and it’s definitely a new favorite in the Heape home. Not only was it delicious, but super easy to prepare and easy on a budget. I should warn anyone who attempts this recipe, that it is a bit spicy –  but we’re fans of spice.

In case you missed it, yesterday’s post included a James IV update and a recap from our week/weekend.

hope you enjoy!
