Did you know Canada.. I hope you all watched Recipe to Riches last night! If not, be sure to catch a repeat either on the Food Network or on Global Saturday night. Remember, each week three Recipe to Riches contestants compete in one of seven food categories. To win the evening and the national stage they have to demonstrate that their recipe is the one that can best be scaled and marketed. The winners of each segment then compete in the season finale for the grand prize of $250,000 – the largest prize ever awarded on Canadian television.
Today we are featuring the winning recipe from last night's episode: John Grass' Chicken Grenades! I think at the end of the season this will still have been my favourite episode, I LOVE appetizers! I could make a whole meal out of them! And this one is to die for, trust me, this is your new go to recipe!! I know on last nights recipe they really promoted it as a guys food, well my guys LOVE it but so do I!!
First step is to make the spice mixture, I got all the spices together (I admit I had to purchase a few, there was no chipotle chili pepper powder or dried thyme leaves in my cupboard)..
Then gave it a quick mix and set aside (this made much more than I needed, able to keep the rest for next time!)..
Cut up the chicken into slices..
Sprinkled a baking sheet with the spice mixture..
Layered the bacon, chicken, cheese and jalapeno..
Rolled them up..
Got them on a cookie sheet..
While they were in the oven I got the 2 jellies out, microwave them just before you need them..
Brushed on the jelly mixture after 20 minutes of cooking..
Popped them back in for 10 and we were ready to go..
And guess what, they were so delicious, we're already making a second batch!!!!!!
I promise you, you will DIE for these! I made a few with no spice for my young boys and they inhaled them, so happy to find a recipe everyone will love!! So easy to make too, just layer, roll and cook. Will you be purchasing it this weekend or trying the recipe yourself?? Don't forget to check out the Chicken Grenades recipe on the Food network website.
