Ingredients

  • 4 large skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 8 slices of bacon thick or thin, both work fine
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt if using low sodium bacon, otherwise 1 tsp of kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp granulated onions
  • 3 tsp honey or corn syrup

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  • In a large bowl, rub the chicken breasts evenly with the honey, salt and the spices.
  • Somewhat tightly wrap two strips of bacon over each chicken breast. You may use wooden sticks to secure the bacon strips.
  • Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear chicken breasts on both sides for about 1 1/2 minutes per side. For crispier bacon (like on the pictures above) you can sear for 2 minutes per side.
  • Place your bacon-wrapped chicken breasts on a baking tray lined with foil or parchment paper and fitted with a cooling rack. Insert a BBQ thermometer probe if using.
  • Bake on top rack for about 35 minutes, until the internal temperature of the chicken has reached 160F.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
