You know that feeling when you don’t want to cook or spend more than an hour in the kitchen? Yeah, I have those days sometimes where all I want to do is order out and call it a day but then I remember that money doesn’t grow on trees. Also, I rather cook and control the amount of anything that goes into my children’s food you know what I mean?
So, I was thinking about what I could cook that doesn’t take long in the kitchen and that my family would enjoy eating, so I had the brilliant idea of making this deliciousness of baked chicken wrapped in bacon. I mean, everyone loves bacon right? I know me and my family do, so that’s what I did for lunch and let me tell you that there was nothing left over for dinner.
The chicken was moist and juicy, wrapping the chicken in the bacon gave the chicken a crunchy and salty layer which was perfect. I love the fact that it did not taste salty at all, which was one of my hubby’s concerns. It was just the right amount of seasoning and goodness that I know you and your family will enjoy.
You do not need to add oil or butter to bake the chicken because as you may know, bacon already has fat in it and when it cooks it releases some of the fat which will act as the oil or butter. This super easy baked chicken wrapped in bacon is perfect for an easy lunch or easy family dinner.
Super easy baked chicken wrapped in bacon
4 skinless chicken breasts/
12 bacon strips (3 for each chicken breast) /
Mc Cormick’s sweet onion and herb seasoning (you can use your favorite seasoning), I’m obsessed with this seasoning and truly recommend it!
In a baking pan, place the chicken breasts and season on one side with your favorite seasoning. Do not over season, just lightly season it, remember the bacon is salty.
Now, in a different plate, place 3 strips of bacon on the plate and place one chicken breast on top, now roll the chicken with the bacon until chicken is fully wrapped with the bacon. Continue doing this step to the rest of the chicken breasts.
Place the chicken wrapped in bacon back into the baking pan, place in the oven and bake in 350 degrees heat for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
I hope this a recipe you will try and let me know how your family loved it! Again this super easy baked chicken wrapped in bacon will easily become a family favorite.
Have a great day!
