Bacon-wrapped chicken

I have always said “EVERYTHING TASTES BETTER WITH BACON”.  

 Random disgusting vegetable like asparagus?  Wrap it in bacon.

 Cauliflower mashed “potatoes?  Chop up some bacon and mix it in.

 Maple-flavored cupcake?  Put some bacon on it. (Seriously, these are delicious if done correctly).

 Needless to say, I love bacon.  My boyfriend loves bacon.  My kids love bacon.  I’m not sure I could trust someone that doesn’t love bacon.  (Codename: vegetarian RN, I’m looking at you.)

 So tonight I made bacon-wrapped chicken.  It’s a low-carb, 30 minute easy peasy meal idea.  And now I’m sharing it with you.  You’re welcome.

 Ingredients

2 chicken breasts, cut into strips (I cut mine into 8 strips)

Uncooked bacon, as many pieces as you have chicken strips (obviously)

Salt and pepper

 Method

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place aluminum foil on a baking sheet.

  1. Wrap each piece of chicken tightly in bacon.  Make sure to not overlap the bacon, because it may not cook properly.  I stretched mine out so the entire piece of chicken is covered.
  2. Place bacon-wrapped chicken on baking sheet.  I placed each piece so the ends were down, just because I didn’t want it to unwrap while the bacon cooked/shrunk.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes until bacon is crispy and chicken is cooked through.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste and devour.

 

And that is it folks.  4 ingredients, 30 minutes.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  Let me know if you try it and how you feel about it.

Happy Cooking!
