Bacon Roasted Chicken

This year we had a small thanksgiving.  In the past, my mom and grandmother have made a turkey fit for an army.  But this year, it was just my small family.  I’ve never made a turkey before and well, I didn’t want to break that tradition, so I pulled out a frozen chicken from the freezer.  With 2 adults and a small child, I didn’t think our appetites would allow us to enjoy turkey and 4 weeks of leftovers.

Rather than making a traditional roasted chicken, I got a little creative.  I added bacon – cause everything is better with bacon, right?

Here’s what you need to make a bacon roasted chicken:

  • Maple Leaf Bacon
  • Chicken
  • Rosemary
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Toothpicks

Here’s what you do:

Preheat the oven to 350.  Rub butter all over your chicken, sprinkle rosemary along the top, dash with salt and pepper.  Lay strips of bacon along the top of the chicken, keeping them in place with the tooth picks.

I let the chicken cook about 1.5 hours and then removed the bacon to expose the top of the chicken to roast.  I let the bacon in the pan to keep the taste in.

The verdict…. Yum yum yum-o! The bacon made the chicken nice and moist and even princess pickey eater ate two drum sticks (yes, two).

This is a very easy way to give a different and delicious taste to chicken.  I will make this again!

But the best part was yet to come… Stay tuned for the leftovers!
