BBQ Chicken Bacon Bombs

BBQ Chicken Bacon Cheddar Bombs

Have you ever heard of the movie, Where the Red Fern Grows? I can’t really remember anything other than a dog and I cried my eyes out at the end, but that movie has popped into my head all night tonight so now I’m on the hunt. Is there anywhere to watch it? I am pretty sure it was for kids, right? So our girls could watch it? Anyway, this post has nothing to do with dogs, but bbq chicken bacon bombs will definitely be one of those recipes that keeps popping into your mind.

BBQ Chicken Bacon Cheddar Bombs

The other night we were shooting off old favorite tv shows with our good friends while I convinced them to take more and more of the recipes I’d been testing all day. These cheesy little bacon bombs were one of our favorites and perfect for serving up at a fun Halloween party. And why not bust out a little tv trivia with your friends while you’re at it?

I mean, who wouldn’t want to remember classics like, Gummy Bears, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, Macgyver, and Touched By An Angel? Oh yeah buddy, nothing like fried bread stuffed with BBQ chicken, bacon and cheese then drizzle with a little extra BBQ sauce. It was so much fun and I’m so full I’m pretty sure my pants are about to bust the button clean off.

How Long Can You Keep Cooked Chicken?

Cooked chicken is safe refrigerated for 3-4 days.

Cooked chicken should be covered or placed in a plastic bag for best storage.

Can BBQ Chicken Be Frozen?

BBQ chicken can be frozen once it is cool.

Place the chicken in a heavy duty freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 4 months.

What Is The Best Way To Cook Bacon?

Bacon can be fried, microwaved or cooked in the oven.

The best way to cook bacon is in the oven.

Heat your oven to 400 degrees, and place bacon in a foil-lined cookie sheet.

For extra crispy bacon, place the bacon on a rack in a foil-lined cookie sheet.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes, depending on your desired crispness.

  • We’ve checked out Where the Red Fern Grows from our local library several times and it still makes me cry… I don’t know how old your daughters are or how sensitive they are when it comes to dogs and death, but maybe have them read the book(or read it to them) and see how they do? Love these little snacks and the name you chose for them; pinned for a game day treat!
