Chicken w/ Bacon and Crispy Capers

So I guess the theme of today is everything crispy! Sometimes I find myself in the mood for a lot of texture but not necessarily deep frying stuff. When I utilize stuff like bacon fat to crisp or fry up stuff I find it to be less guilty because it not deep fried right? Well not exactly but you get it.

This recipe is surprisingly quick and the bacon and capers with some added leek make a crazy delicious pan sauce. This dish makes for a quick weekday satisfying meal. Just at the starch trottole pasta and a veggie of your choice and enjoy!
