Chicken Thighs Wrapped in Bacon & Cheese

I've got some leftover chicken, bacon, salad, leftover potatoes, tomatoes, and cheese so I'm going to try to make chicken wrapped in cheese and bacon. Will this be too salty? Probably. I started with cooking the bacon and then I used my expert knife skills to cut thin slices of cheese. I'm just cooking the bacon for a little bit since I'm still going to bake it with the chicken. So when I made the chicken thighs, I wasn't a hundred percent happy with the un-crispiness of the skin so I'm going to cook it for a little bit in the bacon fat. Then I placed the cheese on top and tried my best to wrap the chicken and bacon. This was a bit of a struggle but I think I got it to work. I put them back in the bacon grease with a few pats of encouragement and then I popped them in an oven for 10 minutes at 400° Fahrenheit.

I knew this would be unhealthy so to make myself feel better I made a little side salad with cherry tomatoes and a vinaigrette. I reheated the potatoes and plated those as well and because I felt fancy, I cut some chives over the top. This was a bit tricky to cut so I used a big knife and I'm being totally honest when I say this, it actually tasted pretty good. I thought it would be too salty and savory but the cheese helped mellow everything out. I had the juiciness of the chicken with the crispiness of the bacon and the cheesiness of the cheese. And I created the ultimate bite by combining everything.
