Not A Recipe Chicken

My wife is feeling chicken depraved since it has been a few days since we have had chicken. So this morning I took chicken breasts out of the freezer. Since I am not a chicken fan I usually try and think of something different to make with it, if my wife doesn’t request something. Honestly I usually spend a couple of hours a day thinking about different things I can make. We have come to wanting our meals to be interesting rather than boring. We do have recipes I make often but I try to go a little crazy with what I make two or three times a week. Luckily most things turn out but there have been some real stinkers.

Today I thought of something that I think would of been great. It involved bacon and brie cheese, but I don’t have any brie so that I will make another day. There was a time before covid that I would of just went to the store and picked up some brie. Hopefully later this year I will get back to doing that.

The reason I wanted to do something with bacon is because we had bacon and eggs for supper last night. Could of just done the simple bacon wrapped chicken breasts but I would rather play with my food. Had other cheese in the fridge but since I had the brie idea, I would of been disappointed with it. At lunch time I was thinking about making myself a BLT and came up with this. It’s not really a recipe it’s just my putting things together that normally taste good together. Bacon and tomato work together and bacon wrapped chicken is good. So all I did was put them together.

Two flattened chicken breasts, salt, pepper, tomato and bacon. Salt and pepper the chicken breasts, top with tomato, cover with bacon, and pin with toothpicks. Bake in a preheated 350 for 40 minutes. So not really a recipe just my putting things together that taste good, and it worked.

    … chicken “depraved”. Is that a typo?

    Curious why you don’t like roast chicken. I like fried chicken but the frying is a pain so it’s usually some type of baked in my house. LOVE chicken karaage which is as close to fried as I cook since my one and only attempt at frying chicken ended up as a major fail. 🙂

    • Had to much roast chicken growing up, large family so I got the over cooked dry bits. Also chicken has no taste and you need to add a ton of things to it to give it flavour. Roasting when I have done things like packing under the skin with oranges, limes, lemons, and herbs worked but my wife didn’t like it. For her it’s just salt and pepper and stick it in the oven. That leaves me with flavourless white meat. Fatty dark meat isn’t anything I want to eat, but she does.

        That’s rough. My dad used to get the chicken backs out of the whole chicken. They weren’t a big family but ‘family issues’. So he isn’t used to meaty cuts of meats. Will eat ribs but not pork chops. Chicken wings but not breasts.

        I usually separate breasts from thighs and take out the breasts when they’re done and let the legs continue cooking. Esp on turkeys. (I cook for one so I’ve had to get creative.)

    • Fried chicken is easy and the coating gives it lots of flavour, and is really good cold or room temperature. Yes frying it in oil until it’s fully cooked is hard, the way I do it is easy. Just brown it in the oil turning it often and finishing it in the oven. That way it does two things. You don’t burn it and it drains the oil off it.

        Interesting … I guess you have to be careful with the 2nd step of roasting the chicken pieces so they don’t overcook.

        TBH, I used to pick up a bucket of KFC chicken when I got a fried chicken craving. Sadly they moved out of the neighbourhood. A cannabis place took over. (SAD)
