- 8 Rashers Of Bacon
- 1 Garlic Clove
- 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice
Serves : 4

Heat oven to 200 degrees. In a bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and minced garlic.

Prick the chicken legs a few times with a sharp knife and brush or spoon over the lemon juice mix.

Wrap each leg with one rasher of bacon, and lay in a baking tray that is either non-stick or sprayed with olive oil. Drizzle the rest of the lemon juice mix over the top.

Cook for 45 minutes, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and bacon is crisping. If you like very crispy bacon, cook for an extra few minutes under a very hot grill.
