  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 12 oz bacon about 12 slices
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 large cloves garlic minced, or garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley minced - 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.
