Quick, easy and so delicious this bacon-wrapped chicken takes boring chicken breasts and makes them exciting with an avocado salsa.
This Oven Baked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast has an avocado salsa for a quick and easy, kid friendly dinner that’s paleo, keto and whole30 compliant! poultry + pork = <3. My new favoritest meat combo EVER ever. Until next week when I make my newest favoritest ever. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.It’s like this:First, you spread on the roasted garlic. If you have never roasted garlic before you are missing.out.on.life.It's easy and makes ALMOST any meal over the top yummmm….ESPECIALLY some Parmesan Greek Yogurt Dip! Orrrr, spreading it on avocado toast and adding an egg. Been doing that ALL THE TIME LATELY.
ALSO, if you want to make this already-so-easy-dinner (that is paleo and whole30 compliant!) even EASIER, you COULD omit the roasted garlic in the name of time saving when making chicken wrapped in bacon. ORRRR, you could DIG deep into your inner very-prepared-person SOUL and prep the roasted garlic AHEAD of time. <–make it the night BEFORE, so it’s ready to go when you wanna EAT.
Also, the sequel: if you do this when making this bacon wrapped chicken recipe, you should roasted 2 heads of garlic so that you have garlic on hand to make aforementioned avocado egg toast with it all week long. SRSLY that is going to change your life!
Secondly, you wrap the chicken ALL up in smooth, salty and ADDICTING bacon (Real talk: we all know that anything bacon is delish) and bake it a RLY RLY HIGH HEAT. Make sure you put a cookie sheet underneath so all the bacon-y drippings don’t hit your oven and EXPLODE IT.
When is probably an exaggeration, but do you really want to risk something like that, YOU KNOW?

Bacon + chicken + cooking at ULTRA HIGH heat = the outside of your chicken is wrapped in a crispy, crunchy, perfectly salty hug. None of that “limp and chewy” bacon that happens when it’s not cooked enough. Have you ever gone out for breakfast and had them serve you THAT?
SO NOT YUM.
Let’s talk about the actual chicken breast too. It stays so juicy and tender as it is has the bacon to protect it from direct heat. like a little pork-y shield…and some of that delicious bacon fat kinda coats the outside of the chicken in MORE BACON GOODNESS.
I’ve never met a chicken breast recipe that doesn’t like a) to be shielded from being scorched and b) hugs.
So, basically you’ve got one happy oven baked bacon wrapped chicken breast.
Then, the avocado salsa arrives at the party. It has a creamy texture that perfectly balances out the crispy, salty and RICH bacon, and the tomatoes hit it with the perfect pop of freshness and a LITTLE bit of acid.
Plus, it is just super duper easy and you could put it on SO MANY THINGS.
I was originally going to puree the salsa into a sauce for this oven baked bacon wrapped chicken breast, but then logic actually got the better of me for once. Avocado + tomato + blender = thick, green, chunky, looks-like-chicken-just-went-swimming-with-swamp-people sauce.
And that is a chicken wrapped in bacon recipe that is noooooot so yummy.
Moral of the whole story?
