Love this blogger's writing style and her dishes!
There's only THREE ingredients!!!! Not including salt and pepper of course, that would be like five ingredients then.
Keep in mind, this recipe is for 1 serving!!! Double, triple, fourple the recipe if necessary.
Definition: Fourple. Meaning four times the amount. Cited from Pretend Word Dictionary.
Easy Bacon Chicken Bowl
From www.paleomg.com food blog, check this paleo blog out, fantastic recipes!
Prep time: 25 mins
Cook time: 12 mins
Total time: 37 mins
Remember, this recipe serves 1, if you need to, double or triple it.
½ sweet potato or yam, cut lengthwise
1 chicken thigh, excess fat removed
2 slices of bacon
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place your halved sweet potato cut-side down on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until your sweet potato is soft to the touch.
When your sweet potato has about 6-8 minutes left to cook, place a medium skillet over medium heat.
Add your two slices of bacon.
Salt and pepper both sides of your chicken thigh.
As soon as some of the fat begins to render in your pan, push the bacon to one side and place your chicken thigh into the bacon fat.
Cook chicken and bacon on one side for about 4-5 minutes, then flip.
Your bacon will cook a bit faster, so once it is done, place your sweet potato in a bowl and top it with bacon.
To finish the chicken thigh through, add a tablespoon of water and cover for about 3-5 minutes or until cooked through. Do what I do, check before you much.
Add chicken thigh to your bowl.
Last but not least, grab a fork and knife and cut it all up. Mix it all together.
Top with a pinch of salt and pepper.
so here's the fixins for this Easy Chicken Bacon Bowl.
Not many ingredients eh?
So halve the potatoes lengthwise.
Flip them over and cook until soft...about 30 minutes.
Now start frying the bacon in the pan...
move the bacon to the side.
WHY IS THE BACON BEING DISPLACED???!!!
What did the bacon ever do other than provide kindness and goodness to gazillons of people's stomachs??????
There needs to be room for the chicken thighs?
By the way, the recipe calls for skinless, BONE-IN thighs, but I used boneless, skinless thighs.
So flip the thighs over and cook the other side.
Continue to cook the displaced bacon.
Lookin' good and lookin' done and everybody is all accounted for and nobody is homeless or displaced.
Oh hellooooooo draining bacon.
And hello thighs that are fully cooked and plattered up.
You are done too!
Well, let's get everybody chopped up and together here!
The thigh meat
on top of the bacon
on top of the sweet potato!
Except I have to admit, that I needed two chicken thighs to fill up with the bacon and sweet potato.
Grab a fork and eat up!
Relatively healthy, OH, I imagine turkey bacon might work with olive oil too...hmmm maybe I'll try that next time.
Okay, that's all I have for today girls and guys!
