It turns out that all you have to say to get a guy to put together a new clothing rack for you is to say “bacon wrapped chicken.”
Let me back up. Two years ago one of my roommates decided he didn’t want the $20 clothing rack that was holding his button-ups and sweatshirts. So I took it. It was free and there was nothing really wrong with it. Sure, it swayed a little to the left, but if you put the heavy clothes on the right, it stayed up. And it worked… until the other day.
Over the weekend, I went out for the day, came back and had to hold a funeral. I don’t know if the Earth shifted or if a fly landed on it and it was too much weight, but either way it went down. And it went down hard. Nothing left to it. Gluing it together was not an option and Duct Tape wasn’t gonna do it.
So, I went to Target, got a new clothing rack and figured spending a little extra cash was totally worth it. Considering I made it two years on a free clothing rack, it was worth it. Then I got it home and realized I had to put it together. Total IKEA moment. So I pulled out the big guns and started cooking. Seemed a whole lot less effort than attempting to read the directions and put it all together. Word to all the women out there, learn to cook and you’ll never have to build anything ever again.
Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites
3 chicken breasts
9 strips of bacon
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
Preheat the oven to 375.
Slice each chicken breast into three pieces, slicing it lengthwise. Place piece of bacon on top of chicken, then roll up the chicken, creating a spiral. Lay down in a glass dish. Repeat for each piece, so you end up with 9 pieces of chicken.
Sprinkle top of chicken with black pepper and garlic powder. Place dish in oven. Back for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is crispy. Remove and let cool. Serve.
