A taco shell made of Bacon... stuffed with shredded chicken, lettuce, avocado and tomato. Ridiculous right? Well that is what I thought, until I tried one. Oh boy...these were good. It was sort of like a re-constructed cobb salad, but better. This whole idea started as a joke because I was really missing BLAT sandwiches...but I soon knew I just had to try them. I wasn't even going to post this recipe on here, because I thought these were just too silly to post, but they were so popular on my Facebook page that I decided to throw them on here anyway. I only ate one of these with a side of extra shredded chicken, and it filled me up and allowed me to have a fun treat. And who doesn't deserve a fun treat every now and then?!? You can top these with hot sauce or your favorite paleo salad dressing if you like. I cut my bacon into circles for the tacos and used the extra bacon for breakfast the next morning, but square shapes work just fine and you have large taco shells. I have only tried this with thick-cut bacon because I think that will hold up better than regular cut.

Paleo Shredded Chicken B.L.A.Tacos

Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 30 mins Servings: 4 Tacos

Ingredients: - 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded - 1 package bacon (thick cut if you can) - 1/2 cup shredded lettuce - 1 avocado, sliced - 1/2 tomato, chopped - Paleo hot sauce or salad dressing (optional) Equipment: - Wire baking rack - Large baking pan - Muffin tin - Toothpicks - Cutting board - Chef knife - Oven mitts Directions: 1. Place a wire rack over a baking pan. Weave the bacon together on the rack (see photo below). 2. Bake at 400F until starting to crisp. This will be between 5-15 minutes depending on bacon thickness. If your bacon starts to curl you can place another baking rack (upside down) on top of the bacon to help keep it flat. 3. Remove bacon from oven and place on a cutting board. The easiest way to do this was for me to place the cutting board on top of the bacon, place one hand on top of the cutting board and one hand under the wire rack, squeeze them togeher and flip the whole thing over. And don't forget to do oven mitts when you do that!! 4. Cut bacon into desired shape and size (I suggest cutting it into 4 squares) and place in between the cups of an upside down muffin tin. Use toothpicks to hold the shape if needed (see photo below). 5. Bake for another 5-15 minutes or until crispy. 6. Carefully remove shells and place on a plate. Remove any toothpicks if you used them. Fill with shredded chicken, lettuce, avocado and tomato and serve with your favorite paleo hot sauce or salad dressing (optional).
