Prepare the Chicken:

  • Can do as much bacon as you want, may need two pieces of bacon for the chicken if it is a large piece

  • Frozen chicken thighs: 14-16 minutes per side
  • Fresh chicken breasts: 10 minutes per side
  • Frozen chicken breasts: 13 minutes per side

Caution: Will be very hot and crispy! Be careful when flipping the chicken over as it will be very hot, I recommend using tongs.

Important notes for you:

If the chicken breasts are large, cut them in half and wrap each one individually

When cooking chicken, cook until the meat is no longer pink – need to get to 165 F

Sprinkle cilantro, salt, pepper and squeeze some lime juice over the chicken
