Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Jalapeño Spiced Raspberry Glaze

 

If you paid attention to my New Year’s Eve posting from earlier this week, you’ll notice that there was a platter of appetizers which I served during the festivities. They were a big hit!

I always give credit where credit is due and this time, I owe big thanks to Karista from Karista’s Kitchen. From the moment I laid eyes on her Prosciutto Wrapped Scallops with a Raspberry Chipotle Glaze, I was inspired — she had me at the glaze!

Scallops can get pricey and since these were going to be appetizers for a large number of people, I decided to use chicken instead and substituted bacon for the prosciutto.

The only change I made to the glaze was my use of a jalapeño pepper instead of a chipotle chile which I couldn’t find as I was frantically shopping the day before the big event. Everyone devoured the appetizers and I can only say, thank you Karista for the great recipe idea!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Jalapeño Spiced Raspberry Glaze

Recipe Type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Author: Danny @ 1227 Foster
Ingredients
  • 4 Chicken Breasts – cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 package of Bacon – each slice cut into thirds
  • Raspberry Preserves – I suggest a “no sugar added” variety for those of you watching your sugar
  • White Wine
  • 1-2 Jalapeño Peppers – deseeded and finely chopped
  • Freshly chopped Parsley
  • Toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees convection (or 375 degrees conventional).
  2. Wrap each chicken with a piece of bacon and secure in place with a toothpick.
  3. Arrange chicken pieces on two glass 9×13 baking dishes. I lined it with foil for easier clean up.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes, then broil each side for approximately 5 minutes to brown and crisp the bacon.
  5. While chicken is baking, combine a 3:1 ratio of preserves to wine and heat in a small sauce pan.
  6. Add in the peppers and mix well as the preserves and the wine combine together.
  7. The mixture will reduce as it heats so if it gets too thick, feel free to splash in more wine.
  8. Spoon glaze onto your serving dish and top with the bacon-wrapped chicken.
  9. Sprinkle chopped parsley and enjoy!
Notes

1 pepper gives the sauce a very mild heat so if you want more of a kick, go with 2 peppers.

  1. My boys live anything wrapped in bacon. As a matter of fact teenagers think that bacon is one of the main food groups. I like the cranberry jalapeno sauce as it takes this regular dish and takes it many notches. Take care, BAM

  4. That looks beautiful & you know I could wrap bacon around anything. Now I just have to modify this one for myself sans jalapeno.

    • Yes, it’s all about the bacon :) To be honest, one jalapeño deseeded is really mild if you’re willing to live on the edge :)

  7. Bacon wrapped anything tends to be a favourite of mine. I love the combination with the chillies & fresh chicken strips and the cranberry makes it a little festive during the ‘after’ holiday season too.

    Your photography is stunning and the white works do beautifully against that deep red sauce!
