Asian Glazed Bacon Wrapped Chicken Legs
There are so many new and exciting flavors to enjoy in your day to day cooking. Combining them is half the fun of cooking, I hope you’re enjoying your time in the kitchen!
Oh sweet bacon, how do I love thee, let me count the ways….
I’ve been a chef for most of adult life and friends are always asking me for party snacks and more filling appetizers. Finger Foods is the phrase I hear time and time again. And it’s funny how bacon seems to work its way into so many of my delicious ideas! Coincidence? I think not. More than likely, part of the grander plan of deliciousness for everyone….sigh
So as I rattled my brain for a new way to use bacon in a recipe and I came up the idea for my glazed chicken legs.
The best thing about this dish is how quick it comes together. Start off by wrapping the chicken legs with a slice of Bacon.
I love sweet chili sauce and this was the perfect way to add a spicy-sweet layer of flavor to my chicken legs. Simply brush the chicken legs with the sweet chili sauce.
Then pop them into a 425-degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until they’re crispy. I took the legs out after 15 minutes and brushed them again with the sweet chili sauce.
I made a fresh Pineapple-Mango Salsa to go along with my spicy-sweet chicken legs…. can you say Deliciousness?
