my-consWhen my husband is out of town (which is often) I get lazy about a lot of things. For instance, all the shoes I wear in about a 2 week period end up in the living room because I can’t possibly expend the energy to put them away. Apparently they end up in train formations. Man, I need to update my fashion; I’ve been wearing low-top Cons for about 20 years now.

raw-baconAnyhow, I also have a hard time cooking anything of interest unless I invite friends over for dinner. Which, clearly, I am too lazy to do. So Friday night I cut a chicken breast into strips and wrapped them in bacon, just because I couldn’t stand the idea of another plain baked chicken breast. I threw those puppies in a frying pan and browned them on one side, then turned them and stuck them in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. (I took these photos with my iPhone because I simply couldn’t muster the gumption to find a real camera.)

fried-bacon-chickenAnyhow, not surprisingly, they were delicious. I didn’t even salt or pepper the chicken, but let it be flavored entirely by the bacon. They were tender and juicy and I will totally make these again. I mean, it can’t be any worse for me than batter-dipping and deep-frying them, right? Served alongside a green salad, this dinner felt downright healthy! Well, okay, whatever…at least it was better than fast food.
