Sheet pan dinners are all the rage right now, but I have never really jumped on the wagon. Maybe in the back of my mind I thought it was too simple to actually post on a blog.
But then again, my readers often tell me that they want simple, easy dinner ideas! I suppose that by the end of the day most people don’t want to deal with a complicated recipe. Give them something easy! So I’m here today with a super easy (and fast) supper idea!
This Bacon Wrapped Chicken Sheet Pan Dinner is certainly easy! And as a bonus, it is a good way to clean out the refrigerator!
I am not going to list any particular vegetables to use for this recipe. You can use whatever you have available.
I used radishes, onions, zucchini, mushrooms and red peppers because that was what I had on hand. I think broccoli and cauliflower would be a great addition.
A word to the wise about this recipe . . . you really want to crowd your pan because everything shrinks as it cooks.
I thought my pan looked great (I was actually afraid it was going to be too crowded if I added any more). But when I pulled it out of the oven it looked pretty sparse.
So don’t be afraid to add lots of vegetables!
The chicken is so tender and juicy because of the bacon wrapped around it, sealing in the moisture. Plus bacon adds FLAVOR! Plus bacon is just delicious!
The vegetables themselves are amazing. They caramelize a bit from the juices on the pan, which just takes them to a whole new level!
I may have sat at the table after dinner scraping all the little bits off the pan! (Is that too much information? Ha!)
The cook time for this recipe will vary based on the thickness of your chicken. The cooking times below are just a guideline. You want to make sure your chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Preheat oven to 350.
Slice the chicken breasts in half lengthwise (cut the thickness in half), then cut those pieces in half, so you should have 4 pieces from each breast.
Wrap each piece of chicken in a slice of bacon.
Spray a cookie sheet with coconut oil cooking spray.
Place bacon wrapped chicken on pan.
Fill in the empty spaces with low carb vegetables.
Drizzle the refined coconut oil over the vegetables.
Sprinkle everything with the parmesan cheese and garlic salt.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until chicken is an internal temperature of 160.
The bake time will vary greatly depending on the thickness of your chicken, so please keep a close eye on it.
