AIMEE'S BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN THIGHS AND VEGETABLES

Chicken thighs are great to keep in your freezer; not only because of their taste, but because of their price! At a "normal" price of $1.69 a pound, stock your freezer with chicken thighs for recipes like this and soups, or just to bake. The bacon adds so much flavor that you do not need to add salt; the cayenne and black pepper are optional for a "kick." 

  • 4 or 5 chicken thighs
  • 5 to 7 pieces of bacon
  • 3 baking potatoes
  • 2 onions (any color)
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Wrap each chicken thigh with a piece of bacon. Place in a casserole dish (or pan). Cut potatoes, onions and carrots into cubes, then place in between chicken thighs. Place garlic with vegetables (just drop wherever; you may also mince the garlic, if you prefer a stronger garlic taste). Drizzle olive oil over vegetables, then sprinkle entire dish with cayenne pepper and black pepper. Bake for one hour or until the bacon is crisp.
