Bacon and Maple Chicken Nibbles


Bacon and Maple Chicken Nibbles

Last weekend I was thinking of what to serve my daughter for dinner, as usual like my other weekends it was a time to unleash those creative juices and create something out of what I can find in the pantry. Usually when I do some impromptu cooking it will be stir fried as that’s the easiest one and sometimes pasta but this time will be different.

Three months ago I received from a friend a 2 bottles of a good quality maple syrup from Canada and since then I guess I only used up only 20 ml of it so why not use this in a savoury dish. Since maple also is good with bacon why not mix it together and use it as a flavour for some chicken nibbles that we have on the freezer.  My daughter love all of those so I guess this will be a perfect meal fof her and as a matter of fact it is.

Ingredients

800g chicken nibbles
1 cup maple syrup
2/3 cup bacon, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp soy sauce
freshly ground black pepper
salt
oil

Method

1. In a non-stick pan add a small amount of oil and cook bacon pieces until golden brown and crunchy. Remove from pan, drain then set aside.
2. Using the same pan, add some bacon oil from the fried bacon on step 1 then sauté garlic.
3. Bring the heat to high then add chicken nibbles and continously stir fry until brown on all sides.
4. Pour maple syrup and soy sauce then give it a good mix, place on medium heat then cover pan and cook for 10 minutes turning chicken occasionally.
5. Season with salt if needed and freshly ground black pepper.
6. Place in serving plate then sprinkle with bacon pieces.

  1. These look delicious! And they look easy enough to pull together on one our crazy school nights. My kids would no doubt devour this. Very creative idea!

  2. Oh my gosh – I haven’t had time to check any of my blogs for the past week and look what I missed!

    I love this idea. You can never go wrong with mixing sweet with savory. The use of bacon and maple syrup must have made the chicken amazing.

  3. Mmmmmm….sweet maple syrup glaze with salty bacon makes these chicken nibbles very tempting. My son- who eats almost nothing but chicken- would absolutely love these! :)
