Ingredients

  • 16 oz mild bulk breakfast sausage
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbs minced onion
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tbs honey

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or foil.
  • In a large bowl, mix the sausage, parsley and minced onion. Divide into 8 equal portions and shape each into a log no longer than the length of the chicken where the bone was.
  • Place chicken skinned side down and open them out. Place a log in the center of each thigh where the bone was and fold the chicken around it.
  • Wrap each thigh in one strip of bacon, seam side under the chicken.
  • Place the chicken on the prepared pan and brush each thigh with the honey.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until cooked through and the bacon is golden brown and crispy. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.
