Bacon Glazed Chicken

We only eat chicken once in a while.  To learn why, see my previous post, Roast Chicken with Carmelized Shallots, delish, by the way.

Jan's Sushi Bar
When I came across this recipe from Jan's Sushi Bar, I couldn't resist.  We do love bacon!

  • 1 whole organic, free-range chicken, cut up or about 8 of your favorite pieces, we use Rosie Organic Chicken
  • 1/4 cup melted, high-quality bacon fat, we use Applegate Sunday Bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • Place rinsed, patted dry chicken pieces in a baking dish.  
  • Mix together syrup, cayenne, salt, and pepper.  Sprinkle over all the chicken pieces.  
  • Drizzle melted bacon fat over pieces and rub into skin.
  • Bake for about 45-50 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165˚F.
  • Allow to stand 5 minutes before serving.
