When your husband takes one bite, sits back and lets out a sound that is half moan, half laugh and declares something is “ridiculous” – you know you have a winner.

Note: If you make this recipe with turkey (or beef) bacon to be biblically clean like I now do, you may need to add additional oil/fat as alternative bacons are very lean. See this recipe at Wholesome Skillet: How to Make Crispy Turkey Bacon

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 5 chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
  • 10 slices uncured bacon, thick-cut
  • wooden skewers

Instructions
 

  • To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small dish, combine the onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and paprika. Give them a stir.
  • Cut each thigh in half.
  • Season your chicken with the seasoning blend, sprinkling it on both sides of the chicken.
  • Wrap a slice of bacon around a piece of chicken and secure it with a wooden skewer to keep it in place. Repeat this with all of the chicken pieces, creating 10 little bundles.
  • In a large, oven-safe skillet, (I use a cast iron one) cook the bundles over medium heat, until the bacon is browned. Turn them over to brown both sides. Work in batches, about half of the bundles at a times, so that you don’t crowd them in the skillet. Set the browned ones on a plate and cover the plate with foil to keep them warm while you brown the others.
  • When all of the bundles are browned, arrange them all in your skillet.
  • Slide the skillet into the oven and bake these for 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. A meat thermometer inserted into the chicken should read 170 degrees.
  • When they are done baking, allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before you serve it. That way all of the juices don’t run out and cause your chicken to become dry.
  • Enjoy!

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork
