So here’s my bacon haiku:
Bacon wrapped chicken,
So tasty. Now let’s press play.
That was deep. =D
Clearly, bacon makes everything better. Tastily marinated chicken drumsticks are no exception!
At least a half hour before you want to start cooking, place marinade ingredients and chicken drumsticks in a plastic bag. While the meat is marinating, boil water in a saucepan and boil bacon for 5 minutes (this helps it crisp up more under the broiler). Fire up the broiler on High (or you could use the grill). Wrap each chicken drumstick with a strip of bacon over the meatiest part, and secure with a toothpick. Line pan with foil for easier cleanup, arrange drumsticks on a platter, and make sure your oven rack is at least 8 inches from the heat source. Broil breasts for 15 minutes, flip them, pour remaining marinade over the meat, then broil for 15 more minutes. Watch carefully in those last 5 minutes, as broilers burn easily. Stick one with a meat thermometer to make sure it reads at least 180 degrees F.
P90x Nutrition Plan Servings
1 protein serving per drumstick.
P.S. This is a great make-ahead protein source for you folks who want to do your cooking in bulk over the weekend.
P.P.S. I understand that many of you will have trouble respecting me after that bacon haiku. I’m willing to take the risk. BACON. ;-P
