This sweet-mustard-bacon-chicken combo makes for a fun meal or appetizer. Whenever I serve these strips there seems to be an extra level of excitement around the table. With bacon covered in a sweet and spicy sauce, you just can’t go wrong.

Tips for Trim Healthy Mamas:

  • I use xylitol or my homemade sweetener blend to make the sweet mustard, but feel free to use your choice of on plan sweetener.
  • The turkey bacon I used had only 5 grams of fat in two slices, so 4 of these chicken strips would be an FP and anything more than that would be an S.
