FACT: If chicken ain’t wrapped in bacon I don’t want it 🤣 no but seriously pork is the magic ingredient for just about any savory dish right?! .
Maple Bacon Wrapped Chicken
First, rub chicken breasts with salt, pepper, sweet paprika, and garlic powder.
Then, wrap each chicken breast with about 3 to 4 slices of bacon per chicken – amount of bacon needed will depend on the size of your chicken breasts. See that you start and finish with the seam-side down to secure the bacon.
I suggest not to use thick-cut bacon; it’s harder to wrap around the chicken and it will take longer to cook. Also, I use low sodium bacon and add just a pinch of salt on top of the bacon before baking.
Take the wrapped chicken breasts and arrange in a baking dish in one single layer. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl combine (Lakanto if keto/low carb) maple syrup and dijon mustard; mix to combine and brush it over each chicken breast.
Crack fresh ground pepper over the chicken.
Bake for 22 to 25 minutes at 425˚F, or until done, and brush/baste with the juices couple of times during baking.
