Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Rosemary Potatoes

This meal is simple, but so good. I could eat my weight in these potatoes, and the whole meal is Whole30 approved!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Bacon
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions:

  • Season chicken with salt and pepper
  • Wrap each chicken breast with one piece of bacon
  • Place on a sheet pan with a rack (so the bacon grease can drain as it cooks) and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Juices should run clear when it is done.

Green Beans (Mamaw Hall style)

Mamaw Hall always cooked her green beans with a ham bone or some ham in them to give them a really good flavor. She also cooked them to death, so there was almost not liquid left, which makes them super tender. I’m not a huge fan of ham and rarely have it on hand at my house, but we always have bacon, so I use bacon to get the same kind of flavor infused into my beans.

Ingredients:

  • One can of cut green beans
  • One slice of bacon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • Cut the uncooked bacon slice into small strips
  • On medium-high heat, cook the bacon in a medium sized pot for about one minute (it should not get crispy, but this gives it time to release the fats and become really aromatic)
  • Pour the can of beans (with the liquid) into the pot and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until most of the liquid is gone.
