Cook Time: 45 minutes
Keywords: bake entree low-carb paleo chicken bacon
Ingredients (6 chicken thighs)
  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 6 pieces of bacon
  • 1 Tbsp coconut amino's (or soya sauce if you must)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin puree (or more ketchup)
  • 2 Tbsp organic ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp organic apple cider vinegar (I used Braggs)
  • 1 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together all marinade ingredients. Wrap each chicken thigh with a slice of bacon. Secure the bacon with a toothpick. Place the chicken thighs in a glass casserole dish with a lid. Pour marinade over top of bacon wrapped chicken thighs.
Bake for 35 minutes. Remove casserole from oven.
Pour off liquid into a sauce pan. Put chicken back into oven with no lid. Broil on low for 5 minutes (or longer - until bacon just starts getting crispy).
Meanwhile, heat the sauce to medium/high heat. Add 1 Tbsp of thickener (I used arrowroot). Mix thoroughly until sauce thickens. Remove casserole from oven and pour thickened sauce over top.
