Ingredients

Bacon Wrapped Chicken:

  • 1 lb bacon cut into thirds
  • 2 chicken breasts about 1-2 lbs of chicken, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground mustard spice
  • 1 tsp salt

Avocado Dipping Sauce:

  • 2 jumbo avocados roughly 3 cups of flesh
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, ground mustard and salt.
  • Spoon a little bit of the spice mixture onto a piece of bacon and spread until the bacon is covered.
  • Then place a piece of the chicken at the top of the bacon and roll the bacon around the chicken.
  • Place the wrapped chicken in an 8x13 inch casserole dish with the seam side down. Repeat with the remaining chicken and bacon. You'll want to leave a little bit of room in between each piece in the casserole dish to allow for even browning.
  • Once you have completed wrapped all of the chicken cubes, bake in the oven at 375F for 25-30 minutes or until bacon is browned and the chicken is cooked through, to an internal temperature of 165F.
  • In the meantime, to make the avocado dipping sauce, add the avocado, cumin, lime juice, garlic, and salt to a food processor.
  • Blend until it begins getting smoother.
  • Then, drizzle the avocado oil into the food processor until you reach your desired consistency. I used a full 2 tablespoons of the oil to reach the consistency I wanted. Serve immediately.
