What I Eat

Bacon Chicken

Serves: 4

Ingredients:
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 slices thick-cut bacon

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put chicken breasts in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil. Sprinkle spices on chicken breasts. Top each chicken breast with a slice of bacon, overlapping the bacon as little as possible. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is crisp. Serve with your favorite healthy side dishes, such as my Carrots with Honey Butter recipe, and a glass of water.
