This has been in my recipe book for years. Chicken bacon wrap is a quick dinner recipe, which makes it fantastic for this rainy Wednesday.  Quick, easy, and flavorful. Made with just a few ingredients that you probably already have.

Bacon and chicken combine in this simple appetizer to make a protein superpower dish! The flavors of tomato and garlic perfectly complement the bacon.

With a simple mix, wrap, and bake, these chicken thighs pull together in almost no time at all. They’re easy to pull out of the oven fresh right onto the serving plate. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!

Garlic is rich in antioxidants, boosting the immune system. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which supports heart health while the protein in the chicken helps to make you feel full longer, as well as promoting muscle growth.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 5 pieces chicken thighs, boneless & skinless
  • 6-7 slices bacon
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp olive oil, for greasing

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. If your baking sheet sticks to food while baking spread just grease with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Mince 2-3 cloves of garlic set aside. (If they’re small cloves, use 3.)
  • Mix 1 Tbsp of tomato paste with 1 Tablespoon of mayonnaise.
  • Open the chicken thighs, inside facing up.
  • Add a small pinch of salt, pepper and minced garlic on each thigh.
  • Roll the chicken thighs so that the inside stays inside.
  • Wrap with bacon each chicken thigh. Transfer the chicken thighs to a baking sheet.
  • Brush each with mayonnaise and tomato mix.
  • Cover with foil and put in oven for 30 minutes. Take off the foil and bake for another 10 minutes. I like to BROIL last two minutes both sides of the chicken bacon wrap to get the nice dark color of the bacon. Enjoy!
