Grilled bourbon french toast with bacon wrapped chicken

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal)  It’s a fancy father’s day dish that’s best served from the grill.   Blogger Dan Whalen from showed us how to make Grilled bourbon french toast with bacon wrapped chicken.



  • 1 Loaf Italian Bread
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Bourbon
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg


  • 6 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chile flake
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 Slices Thick Cut Bacon


  • 1. Slice the loaf into 6 hearty 2 inch slices. Arrange in a baking dish. Mix all the other ingredients together and whisk well. Pour over the bread and let soak for 1 hour, flipping half way through. By the end, most of the liquid should be soaked into the bread. Grill about 6 minutes a side to brown and cook through.
  • 2. Remove the tenders from the chicken breasts if they are attached. Trim the chicken if necessary to make them all uniform size and manageable. Rub the chicken with the brown sugar, paprika, chile flake, and salt. Tightly wrap the bacon around the chicken, 2 slices per breast. Use skewers or toothpicks to secure the bacon. Grill the chicken to brown the bacon and fully cook the breasts.
  • 3. To serve, first plate the French toast, and top with the chicken. Smother with a good maple syrup.
