Bacon Jam Glazed Chicken Wings | The Housewife in Training Files

I am beyond excited to share with you all some exciting news – I was asked to be a contributor for the Chowstalker Community e-Cookbook! Chowstalker is a Paleo inspired community with blog entries, photo submission opportunities (similar to Tastespotting) along with informational articles! 

Patty, from Chowstalker, reached out to me a few months back to contribute to their first ever Chowstalker Community e-Cookbook. I was flattered and thrilled for the opportunity! So I got busy brainstorming and whipping up recipes in my kitchen to put my best Paleo foot forward!

If you follow along with the Paleo diet, or heard a bit about it, Paleo, or sometimes referred as “The Caveman Diet”, is a lifestyle rich in lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, fish oil and grass-fed meats. meats, nuts, vegetables and fruits. The Paleo diet delivers many health benefits; to name a few – balanced energy through out the diet, stable blood sugar, anti-inflammatory, improved sleep, burning off stored fat. The paleo diet is focused on food that the caveman ate – no processed foods full of refined sugars and trans fats – and focuses on natural foods full of minerals and vitamins!  If you are interested in more about the Paleo diet, check out Chowstalker along with Robb Wolf’s Paleo Diet.

Although I don’t follow the Paleo diet all the time, I love the concept and the recipe creations we have created in our kitchen that are paleo. Such as my favorite shrimp salad and my spin on grilled chicken and bacon mac and cheese!

Bacon Jam Glazed Chicken Wings | The Housewife in Training Files

For this cookbook, I was thinking along the lines of bacon…because what Paleo diet is complete without bacon? And with summer cookouts coming around the corner, I knew chicken wings would be a hit. Through them together and you have one smoky, savory, sweet and crunchy wing!

I started off with making a savory jam with bacon and onions; caramelized onions tossed with balsamic vinegar, crispy bacon, cider vinegar and a touch of maple to add a touch of sweetness. The wings are patted dry before seasoning and baking to ensure an extra crispy skin; tossed in the jam and then into the oven they go. After the wings bake for a bit, they get a second bath in the jam and then put under the broiler to heat through!
