How To Make Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Wrapping bacon around chicken thighs is one of the greatest ways to use streaky bacon, two ingredients that were made for each other!

Start by laying plastic wrap on the bench. Lay the streaky bacon down and place the chicken thighs on top. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. You can also add fresh herbs like sage and red peppers in the middle of the chicken thighs.

Start wrapping the bacon around your chicken thigh starting at the bottom and rolling the bacon around the chicken. Use 2 rashes of bacon if needed. Place a toothpick at the end of the bacon to hold it in place when cooking.

What Herbs Go With Roasted Vegetables?

Some great herbs to use with roasted vegetables are rosemary, thyme, and sage. All three of these herbs complement each other and have sweet, rich, earthy flavors that pair well with roasted vegetables.

Plus, they’re all pretty easy to find at your local grocery store, or chances are you’ll have at least one growing in your garden.
