Hello friends! Are you thawing out from the "deep" freeze? We were warned to expect 4-6 inches of snow here in Hotlanta...all we got was a dusting and a bit of ice in the trees. Boo!
So, since the grocery stores were open and ready for business, I decided to search Pinterest for a yummy new recipe to try for dinner.
When I stumbled upon this one..5-Ingredient Bacon Crusted Chicken...I knew we had a winner on our hands.
Suffice it to say, it did not disappoint.
5-Ingredient Bacon Crusted Chicken (Paleo, Low Carb)
4 large Chicken Breasts (we prefer organic)
1/4 Cup Mayonaise (we use Veganaise as it is dairy free)
1 1/2 Cup Bacon Bits (cooked) we used Epic Bacon Bits (gluten free)
2 cloves Garlic (minced)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees . Line a baking sheet with foil and grease lightly.
2. In a blender or food processor, pulse the bacon bits, garlic, and sea salt, until pieces are very small. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
3. Place the mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Dip each chicken breast into the mayo (coating with a thin layer only), then roll in the bacon mixture to coat all sides. Place on the baking sheet. Repeat with all the chicken.
4. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon is crispy.
We served alongside mixed veggies.
Super easy. But, everything tastes better with bacon y'all!
