Game Changer

Picked up some nice boneless chicken breasts over the weekend to cook on Monday.  I'm not a big fan of white meat chicken, nor is my oldest son or my daughter.  Middle son and wife like it.  So for an experiment I decided to do make some bacon wrapped chicken.  Here's how things unfolded last night in the kitchen while I'm getting dinner ready.

middle son:  Steve (friend of middle son) and I are going out to eat.
me:  Why didn't you say something before I started making dinner?
middle son:  Dunno.  what's for dinner?
me: chicken.  Steve can stay and join us.
middle son:  Pass. we're going to walk into town.  see ya later.
Steve: is that bacon wrapped chicken that you're making?
me: yes.
Steve:  That's a game changer.  we should stay for dinner.
middle son: really?
Steve:  definitely!

So there you have it when dealing with teenage rebellion.  Bacon wrapped chicken > shame of eating with your parents.

They were pretty good.  Bacon did not overpower the chicken.  Indirect at 350* for about a half hour with some apple chunks. Used a thermopen to verify 160* in the chicken.  Also made some of the breasts with just pepper and garlic, and a nice hot Italian sausage to try since it was from a new store.

    Next time before you roll 'em up, add a piece of pepper jack cheese and a slice of jalapeno (right out of the jar).  We call 'em "Bird Bombs"

    I have jalapenos in the garden.  That would be a nice touch.
