Paleo Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs

This is a really easy – and really tasty entree … inspired by a recipe found on
  • 2 T Organic Coconut Oil (<$1 from Costco)
  • 2 T Balsamic Vinegar (<$1 from Costco)
  • 6 Organic Chicken Thighs (@ $6 from Costco)
  • 1/2 Organic Onion – chopped (@$1 from Meijer)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic – crushed
  • 4 Baby Bella Mushrooms – diced (@$1 from Meijer)
  • 6 Slices of Coleman Natural – Uncured Hickory Smoked Bacon (@ $3 from Costco)
  • 1 t Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 2 T Organic Coconut Oil (<$1 from Costco)
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Prepare 9 x 13 baking dish with 1 T coconut oil.  Combine remaining oil with vinegar, onion, garlic, mushrooms and spices in a large mixing bowl.  Add chicken thighs and mix well, massaging the mixture into the chicken pieces.  Remove each chicken piece from the bowl and wrap with a slice of bacon so that bacon covers the chicken completely.  Place in baking dish in a single layer with loose ends on the bottom of the dish.  Pour remaining marinade over the chicken and bake for 45 to 60 minutes until juices run clear and bacon is cooked.  You may want to pop them in the broiler for a couple of minutes if you prefer crispy bacon 🙂
Serves 4 people at approx $3 per serving.
