wrap my thighs in bacon, please ... the best chicken recipe ever and its a breeze to make!
When you need a quick, delicious dinner (like for nights that your forgot to plan something for dinner, and you always seem to have bacon in the fridge, or is that just me?), I recommend this tasty chicken dish. Based on a recipe from Practical Paleo, I took chicken thighs and wrapped them in the luscious applewood smoked bacon that I get from Door to Door Organics.
3 pounds organic, grass fed chicken thighs
3/4 lb. pasture raised bacon, uncooked
seasoning salt, barbecue blend or whatever herbage you prefer
Preheat your oven to 400. Put foil on your baking sheet (to make clean up easy on the hubby), and top it with a wire rack. Wrap your thighs in bacon (that sounds so creepy, but so awesome) with the loose ends on the bottom, so they don't come unwrapped during baking. Or you can use toothpicks to tighten those bacon thighs. Bake at 400 for 40 minutes.
While your thighs are in the oven, you can whip up an easy, ah-freakin-mazing sauce, too!!
1 c. fresh or frozen cranberries
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 c. your favorite barbecue sauce
Add the cranberries and orange juice to a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the cranberries pop and start to thicken. Add the zest and the bbq sauce. Slather this all over your thighs (chicken).
