Bacon wrapped chicken seasoned with Buffalo sauce is topped with avocado slices and drizzled with tangy BBQ sauce. You can’t beat this easy chicken recipe for a quick and satisfying dinner!
Could there be any more words in the name of this recipe? Well, really yes because I didn’t say BBQ. The BBQ sauce on top is strictly optional, so it didn’t make it into the mega title. You could also add cheese to this bacon chicken, so then it could be Cheesy BBQ Bacon Chicken with Avocado. Honestly though, it’s the bacon and avocado that make the recipe.
I am attempting to write this post in an indoor play area, and it is so dang loud. Apparently inside voices don’t apply when you’re at an indoor playground. Plus, they have music on to add to the chaos. I have to remember to bring earplugs next time. Just this morning I talked to my therapist about my intolerance for noise. My kids talk, hoot, and holler almost constantly, and I find it kind of maddening. At a place like this with tons of loud voices and xylophones and kids’ music blaring, I can hardly function. We’re here for another half hour or so, and then I need to go sit in a quiet room for a few minutes to gather myself. I’m sure my kids will be supportive and accommodating of that request. (That is sarcasm.)
What would really make me feel better was sitting quietly with a piece of this chicken wrapped in bacon with a glass of wine with only whispering voices around me. Oh no. Someone else just found the xylophone. Send help. Or noise cancelling headphones.

I, too, feel your noise intolerant pain! Even if my hubs just has the TV too loud I get seriously anxious and worked up! Pretty sure I couldn’t step foot in an indoor playground let alone get any sort of writing done…more power to ya! But if you have to write in a place like that, you definitely picked the right topic…yummy bacon and avocado! :)
