                                       Jalapeno Coated Fried Chicken Fingers

This one goes out to my granddaughter and her boyfriend who both like it hot and I mean this in more ways than one as we have another great grand-baby on the way!
I had bought some crispy jalapeno strips from Winn Dixie that had gotten a little stale as both Kenny and I found them a little too hot to eat just more than one or two at a time which lead them to go a little on the way side and  the oops side, hence this idea. I am not going to write this out in recipe form like I usually do as it is a no brainer and just another different coating for fried chicken.
I took the jalapeno strips, put them in my food chopper, and chopped them up as fine as I could. Cut my chicken breasts into strips, dipped them into an egg wash, and then coated them with the chopped jalapeno strips. Then we go into either a deep fryer or cast iron frying pan on the stove and cook until golden brown and done. For this one, I used my cast iron and they came out wonderful.

Goes great with BBQ or Ranch Dressing!

Kenny was not too fond of this idea because they did not suit us that well straight out of the bag and I did promise to make some of the chicken plain, but after all was said and done, he was a happy camper again even with the jalapeno coating! Will he ever learn to trust me, ha ha? Served them up with some country corn bread and bacon wrapped tater tots, guess that’s why he was so happy!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Stuffed With Apples

The combination of sweet and salty have always been one of my downfalls, Planter’s Peanut Bars! My sister told me she had just tried some frozen chicken breast stuffed with apples and then coated with bread crumbs and it got my brain going, for a change! I love bacon wrapped chicken stuffed with cheese and peppers and this was just another great way to have a change of pace especially with apples in season right now, oh yeah, more yummy for our tummies! The one regret to how I prepared them was this, I should have had added a little apple sauce to the cooked apples for the stuffing for more moistness, my bad, but next time! And then I complimented it with a baked sweet potato, another thing in season right now.

I have a superb recipe coming up, probably next week, for our son-in-law’s special sweet potatoes and it sounds so tasty that I can’t wait to try it, but I need more sweets to accomplish this feat! I think it would be outstanding with Turkey Day coming soon. Now on with the show……

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Stuffed With Apples
 
Ingredients
  • For 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts:
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups of peeled and diced Granny Smith apples
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • Water
  • Bacon for wrapping
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, add prepared apples and saute until almost tender.
  2. Reduce heat and sprinkle with the brown sugar, add a little water and simmer just until sugar melts into the apples, stirring constantly. Next time I will add a little applesauce!
  3. Filet chicken breast, leaving in one piece and pound flat with a meat tenderizing hammer (yes, I call it a hammer).
  4. Place half the apples onto one breast, fold over the ends and secure with toothpicks; repeat with other breast.
  5. Wrap each breast with desired amount of bacon, hey don't be too stingy here, oh God, I'm starting to sound like Kenny, ha ha!
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru.

 

What a delicious recipe for the fall season and cooler weather…………Enjoy!
