Everyone loves a one pan meal because they're easy to make. But what if it includes bacon? The appeal can only increase from there, right? This Keto friendly chicken, brussel sprouts, and bacon recipe is a great addition to your one pan meal repertoire!

The key to a great one pan meal is to use a deep oven safe pan. I prefer the Calphalon brand of pans myself because these hard anodized bad boys can go right up to 450 degrees in the oven without too much trouble. Just remember not to touch the handle and use oven safe mitts when take the pan in and out of a hot oven!
