I LOVE fair food. With a passion. Unfortunately, most fair food is not gluten free. Recently while on a girls’ trip to a fair, we discovered these tiny little yummy pieces of fair food perfection – and gluten free to boot!
**NOTE: most fair food, even if gf naturally, is fried in the same oil as gluten-loaded chicken sticks and breaded fried candy bars, and is best avoided.
I finally got the opportunity to make my own, and they were DELISH. I served them with sriracha ranch dip (recipe to follow).
2 6.5oz jars marinated artichoke hearts
1 skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
10 slices of bacon, halved
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Place a chicken piece and artichoke piece on each bacon and wrap. You can secure with toothpicks, but as long as you tuck the bacon ends underneath onto the pan, you should be golden.
Bake for 25-35 minutes, until the chicken internal temp reaches 170F. Remove and tent with foil while you make the super-complicated dip: Sriracha Ranch dip.
Take ranch dressing. Add in some sriracha hot pepper sauce to taste. Stir.
Serve and enjoy
