Now I try to keep it to only one “food-blog” a month but what I am about to share with you is so good, it has earned a second one for this month. So a little while back there was that little thing called Easter. As usual at Bass Pro we had our Easter Event going, with tons of families having a great time getting free pictures with the Easter Bunny. We also had our awesome Easter Egg Hunt, which was egg-celent. Every-bunny was happy. After work though I headed to my family’s to catch the last hour or so of their get-together. What shortly made its way onto my plate and into my stomach changed my life.
My stepdad is no stranger to making delicious food. Especially on his Traeger Smoker. I mean all of those pictures from my blog about Traeger Smokers came from him! He got his hands on some pheasant meat and below will be by far the best way I have ever eaten that bird. Now it will work with any kind of poultry and below it is put out for chicken, as that is the most common kind of poultry consumed. Don’t be afraid to try it on duck, goose, quail or what-have-you! Enjoy! As a hidden bonus, this recipe gives you a great excuse to actually use that meat-hammer! And I do apologize for no pictures of the end result, but I wasn't going to waste any time "snappin' photos for Pinstagram!"
2- 4oz Chicken Breast (any kind of poultry would work)
12 pieces of thin-cut Bacon
16oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons onion powder
3 jalapenos, seeded and diced small
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ cup Reduced Balsamic Vinegar
¼ cup Olive Oil
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
Cover chicken breast with plastic wrap and pound it out into ¼ inch thin piece. Cut lengthwise into three pieces.
Place 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture in each strip and roll up. Wrap each ball with one strip of bacon and refrigerate for one hour.
Cook at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is fully cooked.
Serve hot with dipping sauce.
Uh-Oh. My flock at home heard about this recipe and tried to hide in the bushes! Poor little Mesquite, she looks so scared. Just keep layin’ and you’ll be fine…. For now…
