12ozbaconabout 12 slices
3large clovesgarlicminced, or garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsleyminced - optional for serving
Preheat oven to 375°F. Set aside a 13x9 inch baking pan with a trivet or rack to hold the chicken.
In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper together.
Lay the chicken breasts on a work surface, and rub 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar onto each.
Wrap each chicken breast with 2-3 bacon slices with slight overlap, starting and finishing on the bottom of the breast to secure if possible.
Place into prepared pan and sprinkle any remaining brown sugar mixture on top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, brushing or spooning juices from the pan every 10 minutes for extra flavor.
Optional: after baking, place under the broiler (about 6 inches) for 2-3 minutes to crispen. Serve and enjoy!
• Bacon can start to smoke above 375°F, so turn the temperature down slightly if your oven runs hot.
