A super quick and easy, kid friendly chicken recipe, wrapped in bacon and topped with a healthy avocado salsa!
Are you confused? “Turkey on chicken, Taylor?” you say, “are you crazy?”
You already know the answer to that, so I am not addressing that part of the question.
However, poultry A + poultry B = <3. My new favoritest chicken ever. Until next week when I make my newest favoritest ever. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
It’s like this. First, you spread on the roasted garlic. If you have never roasted garlic before you are missing.out.on.life. It is so easy and makes ALMOST any meal over the top yummmm….ESPECIALLY some Parmesan Greek Yogurt Dip! Second,You wrap the chicken in the turkey bacon (we all know that anything bacon, even if it has never oinked in it’s life, is delish) and then you sear it in oil. Oil + bacon + heat = the outside of your chicken is wrapped in a crispy, crunchy, perfectly salty hug. And the actual chicken breast? It stays so juicy and tender as it is has the bacon to protect it from direct heat. Plus, the subbing turkey bacon makes it all super healthy and stuff.
I’ve never met a chicken breast recipe that doesn’t like a) to be shielded from being scorched and b) healthiness and c) hugs.
So, basically you’ve got one happy chicken breast. And, happy food is good food.
Then, the avocado salsa arrives at the party. It has a creamy texture that perfectly balances out the crispy turkey bacon, and the tomatoes hit it with the perfect pop of freshness. Plus, it is just super duper easy.
I was originally going to puree the chutney into a sauce, but then logic actually got the better of me for once. Avocado + tomato + blender = thick, green, chunky, looks-like-chicken-just-went-swimming-with-swamp-people sauce. Not so yummy.
Moral of the whole store? Poultry on poultry = winner winner chicken dinner.
