Blackthistle Peach Chicken Bites

These were a favorite of guests at Blackthistle

Plantation back in the 1980’s. Usually served in the

antebellum winter kitchen before a roaring fire,

they were a perfect accompaniment to drinks before

a dinner of prime rib or the signature shrimp,

artichoke, and pecan casserole.

2 pounds of chicken tenderloins

½ teaspoon of tarragon

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound of bacon

¼ cup of butter

2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce

½ cup of peach preserves

Slice the tenderloins into bite-size portions and sprinkle

with tarragon, salt, and pepper. Wrap each bite with a

half strip of bacon and secure with a pick. Melt the butter

with Worcestershire sauce and peach preserves. Place

the chicken bites in a baking dish and pour the butter

sauce over all. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes and

insure that the bacon has crisped before removing the

chicken bites.
