Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    6 strips bacon (possibly more if larger thighs)
    6 chipotle chilis in adobo sauce
    1 T smoky spice blend

    Smoky spice blend-
    1 T chipotle powder
    1 T smoked paprika
    1T onion powder
    1/2 T cinnamon
    1/2 T black pepper
    salt to taste (1 t)

Tips

For those who don't want as much heat, simply leave out the chipotle chili pepper, the smoky spice blend is delicious on its own and not overpowering.


Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees (or would work great on a charcoal grill)

Combine all the spices and store in a small container, or just scale down to amounts used for this recipe. Convert tablespoons to teaspoons and you should be good

trim visible fat of thighs and remove bone and skin if not already

pat chicken dry and then sprinkle both sides of chicken with the spice blend

Now, roll the thigh up around a chipotle pepper, and then wrap 1 (or 2 if you want) strips of bacon around the thigh

Place seam side down on a grate so that heat gets to all the sides and a little bacon fat can drip off.

sprinkle tops with a little more spice blend and cook in oven 30-45 minutes- until bacon is beginning to crisp and chicken is fully cooked.

Possibly finish in broiler for extra crispy bacon

Goes excellent with spicy sweet potato fries, or just a salad to keep this low carb.

Serving Size: Makes 3 servings, 2 thighs a piece. Easily scalable recipe
