Do you know how you can easily make a boring, plain old chicken breast infinitely better? Wrap it in bacon! This trick is so easy and simple that anyone can do it. The salty, smoky flavor of the bacon perfectly seasons the chicken and as a bonus, by wrapping the chicken in bacon, you won’t overcook the breast. If you want to get even fancier, try putting a layer of a meltable cheese like mozzarella in between the bacon and chicken for a delicious gooey cheese bite with the chicken and bacon. Enjoy!

Makes 6 servings
  • 1 LGCM Chicken Breast ( 2 lobs)
  • 12 slice(s) LGCM Bacon

Directions

  • 1

    Separate the two lobes of the chicken breast and pound them flat to an even thickness, about 1″ thick throughout. Season to your taste with black pepper, then wrap strips of bacon around the outside of the chicken. Use toothpicks, if necessary to keep the bacon sticking to the chicken.

    Place the bacon wrapped breasts on a baking tray lined with aluminum foil and place into an oven preheated to 400ºF and bake for about 30 minutes, until the inside of the chicken breast reaches 165ºF.

    Once the chicken is done baking, remove from the oven, let rest for five minutes and then cut into slices to serve, remembering to remove toothpicks if you used them. Enjoy!
