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.

    [...] We don’t care if you call them “nibbles” or “wings,” you’re going to want a large portion of these napkin wasters. They’re both sweet and salty thanks to the maple syrup and chopped bacon, and are simple enough to put together during halftime if the first round goes quickly. We’d recommend ditching the celery and blue cheese to save room for an extra wing or two, but that’s just us. (Link) [...]
