Bacon Wrapped Mediterranean Chicken
Serves: 8-10
  • 3 lb. chicken breast, sliced into strips
  • Seasoning rub of choice (I used the Mediterranean Rub by the s.a.l.t. sisters)
  • 1 lb. pork bacon (I used thick slice, but thin slice would probably work too and might leave you with a crispier result)
  • Cracked pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken generously with your seasoning rub of choice. Wrap a slice of bacon around each piece of chicken (I sliced a couple of big chicken breasts into 13 pieces, which was the amount of bacon slices I had in my 1 lb. package of thick sliced bacon). Place the bacon-wrapped chicken onto a broiler pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle each piece with cracked pepper. Bake at 400 degrees F on the second rack down from the top of your oven for approximately 30 minutes or just until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear (baking time may vary according to how thick you sliced your chicken). Turn the oven onto "Broil" for a few minutes at the end of the baking time if desired to get your bacon nice and crispy. Yields 8-10 servings
This would also work with chicken tenders instead of sliced chicken breast. Adjust baking time if necessary.
A broiler pan is like a grill pan for the oven. It has slots in the bottom so the juices from the meat can run into the drip pan below. If you don't have a broiler pan, you could try to improvise using an oven-safe wire rack on top of a cookie sheet.
If you don't do pork, you could try using turkey bacon in this recipe. It might get kind of dry, though.
