Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Check out Clean Living Revolution for more recipes like this one.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Roasted or Sautéed Veggies
As many boneless, skinless chicken thighs as your family will eat.
Slices of bacon
Smoky spice blend - 1 tbsp chipotle powder, 1 tbsp paprika, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp sea salt, 1/2 tbsp pepper
(I double the paprika and omit the chipotle powder so it’s smoky but not spicy; keep extra spice blend in an old spice jar and you can use it next time you make this recipe)

Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle the chicken liberally with spice blend. Wrap each piece in a strip of bacon. Sprinkle with more spice blend, and bake for about 40 minutes. Serve with roasted or sautéed veggies of your choice (e.g., asparagus, broccoli, squash, zucchini, onions, etc)
NOTE: I like to add chopped sweet potatoes to this recipe.  It gives them a yummy savory flavor.  Peel and cube two good-sized sweet potatoes.  Add to bottom of 9 x 13 dish and add some of the chicken broth you have made.  Maybe a cup or so.  The potatoes should be about half way submerged.  Then place bacon-wrapped chicken on top and bake.  Take out of the oven about halfway through baking time and make sure all potatoes are getting wet so they are cooking.
