  • Season the chicken thighs with freshly ground pepper. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each of the chicken thighs, tucking the ends under the thigh to hold the bacon in place. Place the wrapped chicken on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the chicken registers 165° on an instant-read thermometer.
