BACON WRAPPED HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN

•Can it get better than chicken wrapped in bacon?  Why yes, it’s also glazed with a honey, coarse mustard, and lemon sauce!  I made this as a main dish, but you can cut chicken smaller and wrap with a half a piece of bacon to make appetizers.  As a main course I would serve it with an arugula salad with a lemon vinaigrette.  Or try rocket and pomegranate salad for something a little fancier.  Love things wrapped in bacon, I have a couple of those under my sleeve too!  Bacon wrapped scallops with chili lime butter or asparagus bundles.

Brush only half of the marinade over the top of the chicken. At this point, you can cover with plastic and keep in the fridge and bake later.

Brush with the other half of the marinade and bake for another 13-15 min.  Keep an eye on things, I flipped them once more because the second side was getting too crispy.
