Red bacon, white chicken – hit the middle of the road with a Syrah-based rosé.

A dry Irish Stout will work well with the roasted vegetables and the richness of bacon.

TK Table Talk:

How can you tell someone you love them without using words?

What To Do:

1. Bacon and Chicken may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.

3. Prep the Chicken: Sprinkle the chicken with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper, ONLY 1 teaspoon paprika, and ONLY 1 teaspoon chili powder. Wrap each chicken breast tightly with 2 bacon slices (ends on the underside of the breast).

6. Bake the Chicken: Place skillet with chicken in oven. Bake 15 minutes. Remove vegetables and add pecan pieces. Cook 3 minutes longer, until chicken is done and vegetables are browned and tender. Remove chicken to a board and rest 5 minutes before slicing.

To Serve: Coarsely chop parsley and toss with vegetables. Divide between 2 plates and serve with sliced chicken.

Pro Tip:

To seal the bacon around the chicken, sear with the seam side down first.

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #terraskitchen.
