Bacon-wrapped Chicken Breast

Mentioned in The Tale of the White Rabbit and the Red Ox

Inspired by a recipe from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Andrew and Jess G.

  • 1-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in half
  • Seasoning rub
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2-8 slices bacon
  1. Flatten chicken breasts to about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Rub both sides of chicken breasts with seasoning rub of choice (anything from salt and pepper to Krazy Kickin’ Kajun rub).
  3. Wrap bacon around chicken breasts and secure in place with toothpick.
  4. Heat oil in skillet large enough to hold chicken breasts in single layer over medium-high heat.
  5. When oil is heated, add chicken to pan and cook for one minute on each side.
  6. Flip chicken over and turn heat to medium-low.
  7. Cook covered for 15-20 minutes until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees F as measured by a meat thermometer.
  8. If bacon is not done to desired crispiness, increase heat to medium-high and cook, turning frequently, until bacon is cooked to desired level of crispiness.
  9. Remove toothpicks and serve immediately.
