I get excited about new and tasty low-carb finds at the grocery store. A few months ago, I tried a new Costco item; Guy Fieri Brazilian Bacon Wrapped Chicken and I loved it. I went back recently to pick up some more, but alas to my dismay they stopped selling it.
My only choice was to recreate the chicken in my kitchen. The end product was delish and will definitely go into my regular rotation of dinners.
This entree has almost no carbs in it.
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
3 Tablespoons of Badia Gourmet Blends Poultry Seasoning**
1 Tablespoon of Paprika
Bacon slices (I make sure mine are prepared with no sugar in the ingredients)
(1) Mix the spices together on a small plate
(2) Roll each piece of chicken in the spice mix. It should be coated generously with the spices.
(3) Wrap each piece of chicken in bacon slices. I used 2 slices per piece of chicken, but you can do as many as you like.
(4) Cook in a oven preheated to 350 degrees between 30 and 45 minutes. Cook time will depend on the size of your chicken breasts. I use the fresh and larger / thicker chicken breasts and my cook time was 45 minutes. A temperature check in the middle of the chicken reading 165 degrees will indicate it is fully cooked.
I like to let the chicken sit with the spices and bacon on it in the fridge for a few hours before cooking. I think it really lets the spices flavor the chicken.
**I found the Badia Gourmet Blends Poultry Seasoning in the Latino Section of my grocery store. The ingredients are Garlic, Onion, Salt , Spices, Paprika. If you cannot find the same spice, you could substitute with something else that has a similar flavor profile.
I have a picky little eater, for him I just cooked a plain chicken breast wrapped in bacon and he loved it. Everyone was happy!!!!
