Bacon Wrapped Chicken


Category : , ,

The internet is full of writers. Poets, novelist, writers of short stories, and writers of conversation. And all of those writers have, at one point or another, declared their overwhelming love of bacon. It's been done. Almost everyone loves bacon. It's hard not to. It's crunchy, salty, and a bit sweet. It's perfect alone and in addition to other things people love (burgers, salads, peanut butter, etc).

Allow me to show you something simple and excellent.

This is all you need. A little olive oil, some boneless skinless chicken breasts, and bacon. I used pepper bacon, because I was feeling it. Feel free to use whatever bacon you want. It's bacon. Thought I imagine maple bacon would be quite good as well.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a baking dish. I used a Pyrex pie plate.
Rub the chicken with a little olive oil, then wrap strips of bacon around the chicken. Secure with toothpicks.

I admit, I am bad at keeping an eye on the clock. I think I let this go for about an hour. Just keep an eye on it. You want the bacon to crisp up and the chicken to cook through.

When you pull it out, it'll look something like this:
That's all there is to it. The chicken will be tender and flavorful, and you get bacon. I served a little fettuccine with goat cheese on the side, and I was soooo full.

I still have pepper bacon, so be prepared for it to make another appearance.


This looks really good. I'm going to have to try it and I still LOVE your yellow plates. Food is always more fun on a pretty plate.
