This is a meaty, smoky, spicy, messy and totally irresistible sort of dish. It’s for people who aren’t shy about having sauce on their face, their hands, maybe down the front of their shirt. Basically, it’s a recipe for bros. Or ladies with a little edge. Ready? Let’s get to it.
This time of year, weekends are dominated by football. College, pro and (in some parts of the country) Friday night lights. Am I right, fellow Southerners? You know what I’m talking about. Anyway, regardless of your preferred level of play, tailgating, fantasy leagues and weekends crowded around big screen TVs or bar booths wearing your team’s jersey is totally a thing. To rise to the occasion, we’ve got bacon-wrapped chicken, slathered in bourbon BBQ sauce.
These will disappear quickly, so be sure to make probably a dozen or more than you think you need. Seriously. The upside is that it’s so simple to throw these together that you won’t even mind. 1) Wrap chicken in bacon 2) Place in oven 3) Combine sauce ingredients and simmer for a few minutes. So easy it should be criminal.
Here’s the recipe we used. Don’t judge, Betty’s been around the block and she knows a thing or two.
Now go get messy. Ready? Break!
