#FrannyCooks : Pampanga's Best Bacon wrapped Cheezy Chicken

Hi guys! It's been a while since I've shared a recipe here.

My apologies.

My entire family's (except for Little L, please spare her) down with the weirdest viruses since last week so we've been pretty much resting and getting drunks with meds. Anyway, J and I are recovering much quickly and we hope Paul's virus will go away pretty soon too as it's hard to watch the twins without Daddy. *waahh*

Anyway, let me share with you one of the most recent kid-friendly dishes that Paul and I made for our twins. It's really not easy to have a picky eater but we somehow now have a better idea of what she likes and so we try to bank on that. For instance, L loves chicken. So, we try to be creative with this apart from the usual chicken soup, stir-fry chicken noodles, roast chicken and chicken nuggets, we try to introduce different dishes to them and while there's really no telling if the twins will like it or not, we will just keep on trying.

We recently got a lot of Brickle Bacon from Pampanga's Best and I was so excited that I asked our helper to fry up one pack immediately the same day that I got the package. A few days after, we tried this easy dish not only for our twins but for the entire family too. One thing that I love about Pampanga's Best's Brickle Bacon is how it's not super fatty and salty. Two reasons why I personally am not a huge fan of bacon. This is also why I was brave enough to introduce this to my twins knowing it is safe for them to eat.

Anyway, I'll stop talking now and here's our latest recipe:

Bacon-wrapped Cheezy Chicken

What you'll need:
1) 1/2 kilo of chicken breast (approx 7-9 pieces)
2) 1/2 box of Quickmelt cheese
3) 1 pack of Pampanga's Best Brickle Bacon
4) salt, pepper and herbs


Follow these easy steps:
1) Thoroughly thaw your chicken meat and bacon
2) Once thawed, marinate your chicken meat with salt, pepper and your chosen herbs (I used rosemary, thyme and basil). Marinate for 3 hours.
3) Lay out a piece of bacon on a board and put a piece of chicken at one end.
4) Top this with a slice of cheese and roll this tightly with the bacon. Repeat until you've wrapped all chicken and cheese with the bacon.

5) Arrange this in a baking dish and drizzle with some olive oil and more herbs.
6) Pre-heat your oven at 220 degrees Celsius (420 Fahrenheit).
7) Bake for 30-40 minutes.
8) ENJOY!

Normally, we shy away from chicken breast as it's normally not the juiciest or most flavorful part of the chicken but if marinated well, we enjoyed our juicy chicken and how the herbs as really helped the flavor. In addition to this, we love the smokey flavor of the bacon too! So yummy.

The verdict: our twins happily ate one roll EACH so that's definitely something worth celebrating for!
