How to make Keto Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast?

This recipe may seem intimidating, but it’s actually very easy. Just follow these steps and you will be enjoying tender and delicious chicken in no time!

Combine the spices in a small bowl. Rub both sides of the chicken breast well with the seasonings so they are completely covered.
Take a piece of bacon and carefully stretch it out as far as possible without breaking it. This will help the bacon cook evenly and reduce how much it will shrink as it cooks. After stretching the bacon, carefully wrap it around the chicken. If you are using large breasts this will probably take two slices, if you are using small breasts you may only need one slice.
Heat a pan over medium heat and fry the bacon-wrapped chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side. Move the chicken to the oven and cook at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes, until it reaches 165 degrees F using a meat thermometer.
Allow the chicken to rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, combine avocado salsa ingredients.

How to Reheat Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Bacon Wrapped Chicken can be reheated in the microwave or oven – this is purely optional.

For quick and easy reheating, microwave on high and check every 30 seconds until chicken is at the right temperature. Add some water to prevent the chicken from drying out during reheating.

To reheat in the oven, first preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your Bacon Wrapped Chicken in a sealed container, also with some water to prevent it from drying out. Warm up for 15-20 minutes, checking its progress every 5-10 minutes.
