Honey Mustard Chicken & Bacon Skewers – Chicken marinated in a wonderful honey mustard dressing, skewered with delicious Hormel Black Label Bacon, and grilled to perfection makes a perfect outdoor entertaining meal!
Howdy folks! Today I have some awesomeness to share with you! I’m happy to say everyone loved this little meal so much. We’ve been grilling a lot lately…a lot! I just love this time of year. Right now we are trying to soak up every bit of this mild weather. Before we know it, it will be sweltering hot, and my kids will only want to play outside for like a minute. But for now, we are really enjoying being outside!
In fact, I had the perfect Mother’s Day doing just that. My husband cranked up the grill, we got out the slip and slide and little pool, and the kids played for hours. I even got to sit outside and look at a cookbook and read some of my other book. Y’all that never happens!! It was absolutely blissful!
So I am definitely looking forward to more days like that one for sure! Another thing I am looking forward to is having some friends over. Our good friends moved to a neighboring town last year, and we don’t get to see them as often anymore. I can’t wait to have them over to do some more outdoor grilling while the kiddos run wild and play.
One thing I can’t wait to make for them are these Honey Mustard Chicken and Bacon Skewers! They are so good, and BONUS, my kids loved them. Winner winner, chicken dinner! Plus Bacon! For this recipe we used, Hormel BLACK LABEL® Bacon -Thick Cut. It was perfect for this recipe.
There is nothing like that bacon cooking as one with the chicken…nothing!
We just skewered the bacon and chicken together in an accordion style pattern after marinating the chicken for a little while. It really made the perfect grilling recipe when you are tired of just plain grilled chicken.
I’m pretty much obsessed with Hormel bacon! Their BLACK LABEL® Bacon features exceptional varieties that never compromise on quality or taste. This includes traditional bacon varieties, fully cooked bacon, thick cut bacon & Canadian bacon. I got my hands on some of their Brown Sugar BLACK LABEL® Bacon, and I cannot wait to try it too! You must check out the Hormel Foods site to see all the varieties, get more Easy Recipe Ideas, get coupons and savings. You can even sign up for their Hormel Newsletter.
On the Hormel site, you’ll get a look at all the varieties like Cherrywood, Pecanwood, and Jalapeno. Be sure to print the coupon while you’re there too!

These are totally making my mouth water, Jaren! I can’t wait to try these out on the grill soon. I’m glad you were able to have a little break while the kids played! Gotta soak those moments up when you can get them. 🙂

I am also loving this weather! And also, these skewers! They look awesome – that bacon is just incredible!!
If using wooden skewers be sure to soak them in water for a. few minutes before threading the meats to prevent them from burning.
Can you cube the chicken instead of threading?
Hi Carrie! Yes, you sure sure can!
Just curious if I can marinate overnight or would the marinade be overwhelming then. Thanks
Hi Lacy! Yes, you can do that! Thanks for visiting!
