Easy Bacon Wrapped Chicken

My sister-in-law and I were visiting over Thanksgiving about what we were making for dinner these days. I confess, I'm a little burned out in the dinner department. I love food, but the constant-ness of the thinking/planning/shopping leaves me feeling ....um, tired.

An easy, healthful, go-to meal at our house is like the one pictured below- some sort of protein and roasted vegetables.

 Easy Bacon Wrapped Chicken

3 chicken breast (cut in half)
wrap each piece of chicken in a strip of bacon

bake for 30 minutes on 350-375 degrees

serves 4-6


I'm trying out Plan to Eat, a system where you plug in your recipes, create a menu calendar, and then you do some dragging and clicking, and it makes your grocery lists for you. I did a free trial, and I loved it.

This cookbook, Keepers, caught my eye.

Lately, when meal planning, I give myself a pep talk....

"don't over analyze it"
"it's not rocket science"
"it doesn't have to be perfect"

or "just do it"

Sometimes I'll even jot these words at the top of my menu/grocery list.


  1. Looks good! I'll have to try it! Don't you just love roasted vegetables this time of year? I've been cutting mine (zucchini, squash, carrots, potatoes, onions) the night before and putting in tupperware with olive oil and some seasoning from the potato seasoning packets you can get at store. Then, just toss it onto pan at dinner time. I hate cooking when littles are running around under me. :)

  2. looks delish. I really rely on my supper notebook to help me with ideas when I'm in a cooking rut. It's been going since 2008 (wow!), so I've got several winters to page back through and remember the soups I relied on :)

  3. roasted vegetables for the win!!!

  4. And when all else fails, it's "BREAKFAST FOR DINNER!"
