Bacon Wrapped Chipotle Chicken Thighs

The Food Network had a contest using McCormick products. I got this great idea for chicken thighs and made it using the products on the list. It was delicious! Problem was, I was supposed to make sure the product was in the photograph with the dish.  Oops. We ate it all and time ran out to make it again – So I decided to share it with you!

What you need:

  •  4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 Tablespoon French’s Yellow Mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons Grill Mates Chipotle Bacon Seasonings (also amazing on popcorn!)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 slices of smoked bacon
  • Oil for the grill

How to Do it:

Place the mustard, grill mates seasoning and olive oil in a Ziploc bag. Seal and squeeze to mix all the ingredients.

Add the chicken thighs and seal, pushing out as much air as possible. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.

Heat the grill or a grill pan to medium-high. Oil the grates and place the chicken, top side down. Cook for about 15 minutes, then turn.

Continue cooking until the outside begins to caramelize (crisp up and brown). Remove from heat and let cool enough to handle.

Wrap each thigh with a slice of bacon and secure with toothpicks.

Place back on grill and grill on all four sides until the bacon is crisp and brown.

Let rest for about 5 minutes, then cut into slices and serve hot!
