How to make Bacon Wrapped Chicken Strips

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees.

Step 2: Over medium heat on the stovetop, preheat a seasoned iron cast skillet and rub a bit more oil on it.

Step 3: In the meantime, place the maple syrup, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper in a small mixing bowl. Whisk well, then add the strips of chicken and mix until the strips are completely coated.

Step 4: Around each chicken strip, wrap the bacon slice. Place in the skillet, loose end-down. If desired, sprinkle with a bit more salt. Cook until it begins to turn golden on one side.

Step 5: Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake the bacon-wrapped chicken strips for about 15 to 17 minutes until the bacon is golden brown.

Note:

If you do not have a cast-iron skillet, you can simply make this on the stove-top or in another oven-safe pan.
