Does the sound of Caramelized Chicken Mignons have your mouth watering? Then, by all means, you won’t be disappointed by this Bronner’s Flavorful Favorites! Given that I had no idea of what to expect from this recipe when Lori first suggested we add it to our bake day roster, I have to say I was nothing short of deliciously enraptured by these glorified chicken tenders … At first sight. And then, consequently, confirmed at first bite! It’s chicken tenders … for adults!
I’ll share moment of transparency … I, at times, can be a picky or an adventurous eater. And while they say you should never judge a book by its cover — I do, often times, judge a recipe by its ingredients. So I was a bit wary as Lori excitedly read off the recipe to me. (Mustard … maple syrup … sugar?!) And to ward off any doubts, Lori reminded me that “everything is better wrapped in bacon!”
Fast forward to a house smelling of pure deliciousness. This caramelized chicken mignons recipe even had my husband raving. And can I tell you that those 5 words are all you need to know that this recipe is, in fact, a “Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner“?!
To lay a foundation for you, my husband is an honest man. He doesn’t rave about every dish I make. So, when he says something without my asking — and more than once — I know it’s GOOD! I lost track of how many times he mentioned it to me that night.
Secondly, let’s gush about how this Caramelized Chicken Mignon recipe balances the sweet with savory. The result? Glorified chicken tenders, wrapped in gloriously golden, caramelized bacon, full of umami flavor and protein-packed!
