BBQ chicken with bacon

BBQ chicken with bacon

This chicken roasted with Cajun Spices is great with our Classic BBQ blend or even Staff BBQ. Use organic bacon if you can find it- it’s usually much less fatty and higher quality.


  • 1 whole chicken, between 2½ à 3 lbs
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun Spice, ground
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, ground
  • 1 tsp black pepper, ground
  • allspice berries, ground
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter, melted


  1. 1

    Wash chicken in running water. Dry thoroughly with a paper towel.

  2. 2

    Chop 4 slices of bacon. Place the bacon pieces and remaining ingredients into a food processor and reduce to a paste. Put chicken in a bowl and rub thoroughly with the marinade, inside and out. Place remaining two slices of bacon on top of the chicken. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 12-24 hours before moving to the next step.

  3. 3

    Remove chicken from the fridge 1 hour before cooking. Preheat oven to 325°F.

  4. 4

    Place chicken on a roasting dish and roast for 2 hours. The leg meat should be 175°F.

  5. 5

    Let rest for 20 minutes before cutting.
