Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs
With the grilling season here, and able to enjoy being outside into the evening you will need some ideas to cook up. Try this one, it is very easy to prep but does take a while to grill as you use a low temperature. It is worth the wait as these are so moist.
Bacon – you will need 1-2 pieces for each thigh
salt and fresh ground pepper
Make sure chicken is at room temperature. Preheat grill to about 300 degrees.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and chili powder. Carefully wrap one to 2 pieces of bacon around the chicken. Secure deeply with toothpick.
Sprinkle with some more freshly cracked black pepper.
Using indirect heat, (flame only one side of grill) lay all chicken pieces on the grill and cook slowly, turn down temperature if bacon flares up. By using indirect heat and keeping the temperature low you should not have very many flare-ups.
Cook until 165 degrees, take off grill, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes.
The chicken will be very juicy. The amount of time varies as to the thickness of the meat, take temperature every so often as not to overcook. Serve with a simple fruit salad and some fresh carrots cooked flavored with maple syrup.
