This meal is from Practical Paleo. My husband surprised me one night by cooking dinner and this was what he made. I was surprised at how amazing the meal was and have requested he make it since when we’ve had visitors over. Typically we serve this with a large salad or mixed roast vegetables.


  • 8 skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 4 tsp of smoky spice blend (below)

Smoky spice blend: Simply combine all ingredients. This makes a large batch so store the leftover spice blend in a container.

  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celcius
  2. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with the smoky spice blend, then wrap each in 1 slice of bacon. Sprinkle with the remaining spice blend.
  3. Bake for about 40 minutes or grill on a grill press until chicken cooked through.
