Bacon Chicken

I don't make a whole lot of chicken for dinner...the reason?  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
My hubby tolerates chicken....barely tolerates it I might add. He does have some recipes he'll actually request, like chicken and waffles or a recipe for Honey Sesame Chicken that Giz posted on Equal Opportunity Kitchen... thank you, Giz! SO...when I made this recipe, and he actually liked it, I HAD TO post it!
This was very easy to put together, which I really like. The aroma of fried bacon and onions was absolutely wonderful!
You might want to try this if you have a "picky-chicken-eater" too...they might very well be surprised!

You bacon chicken sounds easy and delicious! A perfect combination. You can't go wrong with adding bacon!

Mandy said...

I just found your site and YUM! I can't wait to browse all your recipes. The bacon chicken looks right up our alley, I'm going to try this one for my hubby tomorrow! Thanks for sharing.:)

Mary said...

You had me at bacon LOL! Of course. :) I can understand your hubs aversion to chicken. It's so hard to cook just right, and doesn't have a lot of flavor unless it's bone in breasts or dark meat.

That spumoni marshmallow is wild!!

Monica H said...

OMG! Those marshmallows look fantastic. I am so wanting those right now.

Oooh, I have an idea for you. make spumoni rice krispie treats and layer them like yo udid here.

I'll be right over!

Marie said...

Oh gosh Bunny! Everything looks amazing, especially that chicken. I have got to try that one as soon as possible!!

Sophie said...

Donna-FFW said...

LOVING LOVING that bacon chicken.. fantastic weeknight meal. I will be trying that soon.
Fabulous dessert with those marshmallows how very original!!

Casserole on my list also. Cream cheese, breadcrumbs how delicious.

This is like the BEST meal!!!

Amanda said...

Oh you guys have done it again! Bunny, my husband is like yours. Unless the chicken is grilled and slathered in barbecue sauce, he prefers not to have it. I have found a few recipes he'll eat though. Carol, I have to try this side dish. Side dishes are always so boring, and we LOVE both of these vegies, so thank you! Cyndi, all I can say is wow! One of my favorite ice creams in pistachio, and these marshmallows are just gorgeous. Great job!

aandara said...

Bacon and chicken, what's not to love?!

You've got a good looking seasonal meal there...cauliflower and broccoli are just coming into season here in Northern California. Cant wait to try the casserole.

My kids would love to make those marshmallows--great rainy day activity.

Gloria said...

I love all dear Bunny!!!!but Im really in love of your spumoni marshmallows!!!! lovely pictures, kisses, gloria

♥peachkins♥ said...

Oh I love the colors of those marshmallows

Ingrid said...

I have a picky chicken eater, too, and will be trying your recipe Bunny. I'm thinking Carol's side would be perfect with it.

She went BIG with spumoni marshmallows for her first foray into marshmallow making! Great job!

George Gaston said...

Chicken, I find, is an ingredient that needs different flavors to keep it new & different ~ your Bacon Chicken recipe does it in spades!

Also, your whole meal here is full of great combinations of flavor & ideas. Many thanks...

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

The chicken looks really delicious with that bacon! And the casserole looks like the perfect side for it - a yummy way to eat your veggies. Those are the best looking marshmallows I've ever seen!

Cheryl said...

Wow that is one delicious meal! and the marshmallows, impressive, I have been afraid to make them as well!

Eliana said...

I'm taken aback by these marshmallows. They look amazing.

Ivy said...

Everything is so impressive and delicious. I've only come to love broccoli the past year but still my family have some issues as they don't like the smell.

Katrina said...

Can't go wrong with bacon. I love broccoli and cauliflower and it's two of the few veggies my kids will eat. I was just looking at homemade marshmallows yesterday--these look really fun!

Psychgrad said...

I'm behind again....who is Cindy? The chicken looks packed with goodyness! I really should try Giz's chicken recipe too -- seems to be a hit.

Maria said...

Those marshmallows are so fun! Love them!

Claudia said...

Gorgeous fall meal - I'll try anything with bacon! The casserole is fabulous - I know (she modestly said). I do something similar. But those marshmallows - blew me away!

Kerstin said...

I can see why your hubby loved your bacon chicken, it looks SO good! And what creative and cute marshmallows!

Linda said...

Homemade marshmallows, brave girl!
They look really good though!
I like the looks of the chicken and the broc/cauli casserole!

Lisa said...

Everything looks wonderful but I love the colors of the marshmallows.

Lisa said...

Who could be picky about BACON Chicken? What a great idea. The casserole looks great too. And those marshmallows are so pretty. I have never tried making marshmallows before either but you are tempting me here!

Katy ~ said...

I would be very happy with any one of these three delicious recipes. I am a HUGE chicken fan, and with the bacon, I know it's super delicious.

Always good to see a new veggie dish (that's a weak point in my repertoire), and the broccoli/cauliflower combo sounds very good with good color for the dinner plate.

Who doesn't love marshmallows! A beautiful presentation; have not seen the spumoni ones like this before so they are extra fun!

Juliana said...

Oh! Such a treat...love them all specially the spumoni marshmallows, have to give a try :-)

Melissa said...

I love making marshmallows! It is so fun. And oh my! That chicken...anything is great when it wrapped with bacon.

Velva said...

That is one fabulous dinner! My meat, vegetables and my dessert! If I only had the guts to make the marshmallows.

As always, great blog post!

Debbie said...

All of the recipes sound great and the pics make my mouth water!!! I just LOVE the marshmallows...Wow!

The Blonde Duck said...

Looks lovely!

Lori said...

Those are SOME marshmallows! I would love to try one.

Kaitlin said...

Oh my gosh! Those have got to be the best looking marshmallows I've ever seen! They look divine!

teresa said...

oh my goodness, everything looks so good! you've got such delicious recipes here!

Ivy said...

Hi Bunny! Your blog is bumpin!
Everything looks so good and I especially love the spumoni marshmallows because I love spumoni!

Katherine Aucoin said...

I think you can get anyone to eat veggies if you put cream cheese in them! This looks fantastic. I'm so loving the chicken with the bacon and cheese...so comforting. The dessert is over the top, very creative.

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Those are some impressive marshmallows. I haven't gotten around to trying to make my own yet, but I know I will at some point. You really have a great variation on them.

It's funny. You and I have opposite husbands. Chicken is one of the only meats that both my husband and I will eat. I have to find tons of chicken recipes. The problem with me is that he won't eat bacon. I, on the other hand, am dying to make and eat your bacon chicken!

Deeba @Passionate About Baking said...

Oh Bunny...yum yum. Love the chicken, and am glad your hub did too. That casserole too in good enough to be a meal for me. Crisp brocolli & cawliflower yum again!As the the FL marshmallows, WOW!! I's love to make those one day. LOVELY!!

Proud Italian Cook said...

Ok, I want everything, but I'm sorry I'm in love with those marshmallow's!!

Sweet and Savory said...

All your recipes look delicious and attractive, especially those marshmallows and your apple cakes, found elsewhere on blog.

This is a great place to visit as long as one takes away a recipe or two.

Angie said...

I am amazed with your marshmallows, I have always wanted to try them, they look amazing, and I haven't had broccoli and cauliflower casserole in such a long time, it is the only casserole I have ever had that I actually liked!

angelinthekitchen said...

Karen said...

I *love* spumoni and those marshmallows just have to be so delicious!
