    I love this Easy Paleo Chimichurri Bacon Chicken recipe because it is so easy make and very flavorful. You have probably had a similar sauce on beef or steak before. But this version is amazing on chicken and the bacon is a great flavor add in that is optional. Grain free, paleo, and low carb. You can use frozen chicken in this recipe as well. I used chicken thighs but you could use chicken breasts too. My kids love it even though it is green colored. If you like spicy, you can always add some extra red pepper flakes. I gave a choice of oils as I know some people do not cook with olive oil.  This recipe is baked, not fried at extreme high temperatures.  The sauce is also a great sandwich spread if you have left over sauce.

      Thank you so much! I’m such a fan of your blog, recipes and books! Low Carb eating has changed my life, and I would have had no idea how to eat this way if it was not for you and your team. :)
