Recipe Tips

  • Make sure chickens are cut into even sized pieces and are at room temperature for even cooking.
  • Baking the bacon-wrapped chicken on a wired rack helps hot air circulation and bacon crisps up evenly. Also, the extra fat from bacon drips and gets collected on the baking tray.
  • Line the baking tray with an aluminum foil, for easy clean-up.
  • If you can, after tossing chicken with the seasoning, let it sit for 30 minutes – 1 hour in the refrigerator for the flavors to develop.
