Ingredients

  • 2 lbs chicken breast
  • 16 slices bacon
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar replacement (Swerve or your favorite)
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • fresh parsley to garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Dry your chicken breasts off with a paper towel. In a bowl, combine your brown sugar Swerve, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  • Add half of your Swerve spice mix to your chicken breasts so that they’re well coated. Reserve the rest of the Swerve spice mix for topping. Wrap the chicken with the bacon slices in a single layer.
  • Secure with toothpicks if necessary. Place the chicken in a cast iron skillet or oven safe dish. Coat the top of the bacon wrapped chicken with the remaining Swerve spice mix.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF. If you like your bacon crispy, broil on high for 3-5 minutes, watching closely so nothing burns. Garnish with parsley, then serve and enjoy! Serve with these roasted green beans with garlic and lemons.
