Monterey Chicken AKA: Bacony goodness! My husband's MOST requested dish!
I mean absolutely no offense to my vegetarian and vegan friends, but I have to say, I am a firm believer that bacon makes everything better! That savory, smoky taste...The nice crispness....Whether wrapped around a water chestnut in a nice Rumaki or topping my famous Monterey Chicken, (or as the hubby calls it, "Bacon Chicken") bacon can add a whole new dimension of flavor to commonly eaten foods. I like to shake things up a bit by using bacon on steaks, in my baked potato soup, even in grilled cheese sandwiches! No, we don't eat bacon every day. I doubt our arteries would ever forgive us if we did. But I do enjoy adding bacon to several dishes. I feel it enhances the overall flavor and feel of a dish. I try and find new and interesting ways to utilize bacon while experimenting in the kitchen. I like thinking outside the box. I add bacon to my chilis, to my stews, and I have even used bacon in desserts! Trust me, bacon and chocolate DO go together! Bacon is incredibly versatile, and I thought I had used it in every way possible.
Until I discovered Skillet Bacon Jam. This is a delicious spreadable bacon condiment created by the folks at Skillet Street Foods. This company is local legend in Seattle, Washington, and they got their start creating awesome lunch menus served out of an Airstream trailer, Food Truck style, using the finest seasonal gourmet ingredients and innovative culinary techniques. This caught on like wildfire in the Seattle locale, and droves of hungry people flocked to this food truck every day to sample their innovative fare. Skillet Street Foods has evolved into a brick and mortar restaurant, and also offer consumers nationwide the opportunity to purchase one of their most loved taste sensations: Skillet Bacon Jam.
But what exactly IS Skillet Bacon Jam? Sure, it may sound funny, but the concept is truly ingenius! Skillet Street takes Niman Ranch Bacon and renders it down along with onions, balsamic vinegar and other spices . It cooks for several hours until it is a perfect blend of smoky, tangy, savory and slightly sweet….basically spreadable bacony goodness!
I was lucky enough to have sampled Skillet Bacon Jam, and I have to say, it is GOOD! We used it as a condiment for burgers stuffed with mined Jalapeno, fresh Cilantro, garlic, and Ancho chiles topped with spicy Pepper-Jack cheese. The Skillet Bacon Jam had a savory, smoky sweetness that perfectly complimented the spicy burgers.
I also used Skillet Bacon Jam while making twice baked potatoes. This was fantastic! I made my twice baked potatoes like I usually do, with a blend of different cheeses. I simply added a dab of Skillet Bacon Jam to my cheesy potato mixture before I filled my potato skins to bake them the second time. Again, the Skillet Bacon Jam was a real treat, and added a whole new and unexpected dimension to my potatoes. There is the distinct flavor of bacon, of course, but add to it the rendered down onions, balsamic vinegar, and their secret blend of spices, and you have a flavor explosion of epic proportions. The best part? This condiment is easy to use and can be used in so many ways! The possibilities are simply endless!
