Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Onion Gravy


I found this Paleo recipe on Stalkerville and was intrigued by the ingredients. The word "gravy" at least in the typical sense does not lend itself to a Paleo lifestyle so I was really curious to see how these ingredients were going to work together to create a gravy and if it would taste anything at all like gravy.

Plus, how can you say no to anything wrapped in bacon?

    for the chicken:
    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 4 slices thick-cut bacon 
    • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
    • pinch of kosher salt 
    • pepper, to taste
    for the gravy:
    • 1/2 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 sweet apple thinly sliced, peel on
    • 1 tsp. olive oil
    • 1 tsp. dijon mustard
    • pinch of dried thyme 
    • salt and pepper 
1. Preheat the oven to 375.
2. Toss the onion and apple slices together with the olive oil, salt and pepper and then place in a glass 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
3. Meanwhile, season the chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Wrap each chicken breast with a slice of bacon, securing it with a toothpick if necessary.
4. Remove the apple and onion mixture from the oven and place the chicken breasts on top. Bake for 25 minutes then increase the oven temperature for 425 and bake for 10 more minutes.
5. Transfer the chicken to a plate and tent loosely with foil.
6. Transfer the onion and apple mixture and any juices to a food processor or blender. Add the dijon mustard and thyme. Blend until smooth. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper if necessary.
7. Spread onion gravy onto the plate and place the bacon wrapped chicken breast on top. Serve immediately.

It actually tastes like gravy. I was not expecting that at all. Of course its not your typically white gravy or beef gravy, but it's still really good. Apples and onions pair so nicely chicken and pork that it's really a no brainer for how delicious this recipe is.
