Some people claim anything tastes better with bacon, but I don't happen to be one of those people. I don't hate the taste, I'm just not a fan. But....tonight's dinner tasted really great with bacon wrapped around the chicken. The garlic butter and parmesan gave the outside of the chicken a little bit of a crisp and the flavors all meshed together beautifully. This recipe doesn't require any fancy ingredients, and it should be very simple for anyone to make!
4 chicken breasts
8 slices of bacon
4 1/2 teaspoons fresh grated parmesan
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 cube softened butter
Salt/Pepper to taste
In a food processor or blender, combine the cheese, garlic, butter and some salt and pepper until smooth.
Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each chicken breast so it's almost completely covered in bacon.
Sprinkle salt and pepper.
Using your hands or a pastry brush, brush the butter mixture from the food processor onto each bacon wrapped chicken breast. Place in the refrigerator for about a half hour to chill the butter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-40 minutes depending on the size of the chicken breasts.
*Make sure you cook this on the top of a broiler pan or something that the butter and juice can drop into it while the chicken is cooking!
