Didn’t I just say I am not a big chicken person? And here I am posting two chicken recipes in a row. What a hypocrite. I apologize. But I guess I could call this a bacon recipe right? I do like bacon much more than chicken. But if I call it a bacon recipe, it will be much harder to convince you it’s a healthy recipe. Dilemmas, Dilemmas. How about I just call it a tasty recipe? Because it really is. And a quick and easy recipe too. And healthy – really – don’t let the bacon lead you astray. Yes, you can be healthy and eat bacon. I don’t lie. Then again, I’m not a nutritionist, but I do have an above average I.Q. so you really should just trust me. You won’t be sorry, I promise.


  • 2 chicken breasts, cut in half (4 pieces total)
