Growing up my Mom used to make these Bacon Chicken Pinwheels for us! They’re so yummy but of course I’d love it, right? I mean bacon. BACON! If you’ve read our blog in the past you know we LOVE bacon. When you roll it in chicken it makes it healthy, right? Just kidding but seriously great.
I realized today that I’ve never made it for my kids or husband before and I don’t think my Mom has ever made it for them either. So, a little about my oldest son Hayden. He looks like a little mini me version of my husband except that he got my blonde hair instead of my husband’s red. Other than that, he is my husband, even in his personality. He did, however, inherit my
addiction love of chocolate and bacon. He would eat as much as he could if you left him alone. He also loves when I make chicken for dinner, so now you can see why I was in shock when I realized I have never made this for him.
He was so happy that I got an even bigger kiss and hug after dinner. I’m a sucker for a kiss and hug from my kids.
Give this recipe a try. It’s only 5 ingredients and pulls together so fast but looks and tastes like a special occasion dinner. Let us know if you end up with extra big kisses and hugs after you serve it.
