Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in skinless chicken thighs (or may use boneless thighs, but cooking time will vary)
  • 8 slices bacon
  • ½ cup prepared teriyaki sauce with or without sesame seeds
  • 4 pineapple rings
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sesame seeds optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lay the bacon on a baking sheet and brush both sides with the teriyaki sauce.
  • Top the bacon slices with the pineapple rings and brush with the teriyaki sauce that remains on the baking sheet.
  • Set the bacon aside for 15 minutes to marinate.
  • Place the chicken thighs on a baking sheet, with or without a rack insert.
  • Brush each thigh with the teriyaki sauce that remains on the baking sheet with the bacon. Or, add more if desired.
  • Season each thigh with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top each chicken thigh with a pineapple ring.
  • Wrap 2 slices of the marinated bacon around each pineapple topped chicken thigh, making sure to tuck the ends of the bacon under each thigh prior to cooking.
  • Top each with a sprinkling of sesame seeds (if desired)
  • Place the baking sheet into a preheated oven for approximately 45 minutes (for bone-in chicken) *Note - boneless chicken thighs will require slightly less cooking time - or until the chicken is cooked through to an internal temperature of 165 degrees, and the juices run clear.
  • Serve and enjoy!
