Bakin’ With Bacon and King Teddy


Boo!   It’s Halloween month and even the King of Bacon celebrates that (early!)

Saturday means bacon recipes – hopefully easy ones but always TASTY ones! I’ve got just the trick for you today. Involving chicken strips and puff pastry and it’s beyond delicious!  I do a lot of recipes involving MEAT but this involves chicken so maybe just a little different than the usual.

What am I talking about?

Yummy Chicken Bacon Tart


  • 1/4 pound bacon strips, cut into thirds
  • 2 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 package (9 ounces) ready-to-serve roasted chicken breast strips
  • 1/4 cup jalapeno pepper jelly
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon. Saute onions and apples in drippings until tender. Stir in the chicken, jelly, thyme and salt.
  • On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Roll into a 10-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Transfer to a 15x10x1-in. parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Prick with a fork.
  • Spread chicken mixture over pastry to within 1 in. of edges. Sprinkle with cheese and pepper. Press edges with a fork, forming a decorative border.
  • Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with bacon; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until golden brown. Sprinkle with parsley.

See?   Easy and delicious…..that jalapeno pepper jelly gives it a BOOST!

See you next week for more bacon fun!

  1. That sounds good and I can leave the bacon out! I don’t have jalapeno jelly but we have a chilli farm about half an hour from us and they make dozens of different jellies, chutneys and jams from them. They vary from mild to blow your head off hot! I am sure they would have one that would work well.
    They have one with apple added and as you have apples in the recipe I think that would be good. They also have an elderflower and chilli jelly which sounds good and I might try.
    I may be brave and visit rather than order by email.

    • Oh how wonderful you have a chili farm close by…..I bet that would be a wonderfully interesting (and tasty) day trip! Yes bacon can be left out and any sort of “hot” jelly would be wonderful – it’s just that little bit of spice that makes this “different” !!

  2. Yummy and a great dish for fall. We are getting a nice gentle rain this morning, the beginnings of Delta passing over. We could see potentially a total of an inch scattered over the weekend.
    Good news since our lawn guys aerated and seeded last week
    Hugs to you 3


  3. Chef Teddy! You look adorable in your costume here for us! You have found us a great recipe. I saw some of that chili jelly a few days ago so I know where I could go get it. XXX
