Who loves BLT’s? This BLT Chicken recipe takes those classic flavors and brings them to the dinner table.

I love a good BLT for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. That love inspired today’s recipe. Like, what if I took my favorite sandwich’s ingredients turned them into a tasty chicken recipe?

Who loves BLT's? This BLT Chicken recipe takes those classic flavors and brings them to the dinner table.

To make the this deliciously easy dinner, put chicken thighs on a rimmed baking sheet, like this. Top each with a slice of tomato and half of a piece of bacon. Then into a 425°F oven they go.

BLT Chicken in Pan
In the time that chicken cooks through, the bacon gets crispy. And you know it’s dripping bacony goodness onto the tomato and chicken underneath. How perfect is that?

BLT Chicken Cooking
OK so what about the L part of the BLT? And where’s the mayo??? You can’t have a BLT dinner without mayonnaise!

Chicken BLT
While the chicken is cooking, chop up some lettuce. Put that on plates. Scoop some mayonnaise into a zip-top bag and cut off one little corner of the bag. Drizzle the mayo over the lettuce. Top the lettuce and mayonnaise with your bacony chicken when ready and dig in.

Seriously good, right? Love it up,

Christine ;)

    We tried this a week ago and found it absolutely delicious! Found it to be a great dinner for entertaining or just
    a good “go to” main course for weeknights. Very easy to throw together but oh so yummy.
