I was shocked to find out that so many people I know have switched from pork bacon to turkey bacon. I am without a doubt a huge bacon lover so even getting myself to try it was a big ordeal. You can of course taste the difference but it’s really not bad! The boys have actually come to like it too. What I like about it most is knowing there is not all that grease in the pan when it’s done cooking. I know, I know, that’s the best part right?
I am certain this is not an original idea but it was one of those, open the fridge, look in and grab, dinner moments. Really simple and really delicious. I am a big fan of Applegate Naturals bacon for a number of reasons.
It is all natural, no antibiotics used, gluten free, casein free, not preserved, minimally processed, no artificial ingredients and a lot more. I purchase mine at Kroger so there is a very good chance you can find this at your local grocery store. Applegate isn’t just limited to bacon either. They make a wide variety of products from hot dogs to lunch meats!
5- Boneless Skinless Chicken breasts
12 – strips of Bacon (pork or turkey)
Salt and Pepper
Slice your chicken long ways in half, making them more like a tender shape.
Season each side of your chicken with a little salt and pepper. You can really use any spices that you want for this step. I just used my house seasoning mix which is just salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Wrap a piece of bacon around each tender. I made some with pork bacon and some with turkey bacon. I was just interested to see the flavoring difference. I liked them both personally. I did cook them in two smaller pans, of course, to avoid all of the grease getting onto the turkey ones.
Cover each pan and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree over for 30 minutes. At this point, you want to uncover the chicken and turn the broiler on for just a few minutes. All you are really looking to do here is make the bacon a little crispy. If you like it on the softer side, by all means, skip this step and eat!
I happened to have some Kraft Smokin Bacon Ranch dipping sauce on hand so I figured, why not! There is no such thing as too much bacon!
