4 pounds chicken thighs, diced
1/2 pound Applewood-smoked bacon
1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic, granulated
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
Salt and pepper

Dice chicken thighs and bacon into 1/2-inch pieces. Place on a baking sheet and put in the freezer for 20–30 minutes. Place diced chicken thighs and bacon from the freezer, olive oil and onion in food processor; pulse until very finely chopped, but bits of bacon and chicken remain. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until incorporated. Taste for seasoning by rolling a little of the mixture into a ball and placing in the microwave for 20 seconds to cook. Add more salt and pepper if necessary, then form into patties and place onto a baking sheet until ready to cook.

Cook to 165 degrees internal temperature and serve with your favorite bread and toppings.
