Baked Chicken with Asparagus Bacon Bouquets




Ingredients:

2lb chicken

1 teaspoon crushed black pepper

1 teaspoon sea salt

Asparagus (1 pack)

Bacon (6 slices)


Sauce Ingredients:

1 tablespoon mustard

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

5 cloves of fresh garlic



Directions:


Preheat oven to 425 degrees


Start by seasoning both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. Place into a baking dish.


In a medium size bowl, whisk together the mustards, honey, olive oil, red pepper flakes and garlic. Brush sauce over both sides of the chicken and set aside.


Grab a bunch of asparagus to make a cute bouquet and wrap each bunch with a slice of bacon and line them in a sheet pan. Once you have them all done sprinkle with salt & pepper.


Bake both for 35/40 minutes.


The chicken should have an internal temperature of 165 F degrees and the skin should be nice and crispy.


You will need to turn your asparagus half way though the cooking process so that the bacon can crisp evenly.



Enjoy!
