  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 6 slices sugar-free bacon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or use a cast iron skillet.
  • Mix the garlic, mustard and chili powders with the salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle the spice mixture over all sides of the chicken thighs.
  • Wrap a slice of bacon around each chicken thigh.
  • Rub remaining spice mixture on the bacon.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until a thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.


  • For crispier bacon, place under the broiler for a few minutes.
  • One slice of bacon will fit around different sizes of chicken thighs differently. Some will seem very large, others will barely wrap around. It’s fine, don’t worry about it.
  • I baked my chicken in the oven on the baking sheet, then transferred it to the skillet for the pictures. You can cook your chicken on either pan.
  • You can use bone-in chicken thighs, but your cooking time will be longer by at least 10 minutes.
