  1. That looks really good, Karen. I’m making chicken with pesto tonight, but I don’t have any bacon on hand or I would try it. Would be good for a crowd as well, as you could just do one breast per person and set it all up in advance. Awesome!

  2. Oh man, I’m wishing bacon wasn’t a trigger food for nausea these days! The Husband would be thrilled with this recipe. And good job AJ for loving quinoa. Can he teach my 3 year old?

  3. Oh yum! This recipe looks so good! Bacon wrapped anything is sure to be a hit in my home and I’m always on the look out for new ways to make chicken 🙂

  4. Hi Karen,
    What a great idea! This looks so delicious. I love chicken and bacon – put the 2 together is sure to be a winning meal. Quinoa is such a healthy grain. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & twitted.

Would love to read your thoughts
