Bacon Wrapped Balsamic Chicken

Author Laura Doerr with Ways to my Heart

Servings 4


4 chicken breasts skinless, boneless

8 slices thick cut bacon

3 tbsp balsamic glaze

salt and pepper

fresh grated Parmesan cheese, optional


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Preheat a large skillet to med-high heat. Par-cook bacon on both sides until it is about halfway cooked, only about 2-3 minutes per side. You still want it flimsy, not crisp. Drain on a paper towel. This will help the bacon to fully crisp up while baking in the oven with the chicken.

3. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper. Baste the chicken with 2 tbsps. of the balsamic glaze, reserving 1 tbsp. for basting after the cooking is complete.

4. Wrap each chicken breast with 2 slices of bacon. Secure with toothpicks if necessary, and place in greased baking dish. Bake chicken for 30-35 minutes, or until cooked through depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Baste with the remaining 1 tbsp. of balsamic glaze, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Recipe Notes

I highly recommend serving this chicken with my Parmesan Pesto Spaghetti Squash, the flavors really complement each other well!
