•Can it get better than chicken wrapped in bacon? Why yes, it’s also glazed with a honey, coarse mustard, and lemon sauce! I made this as a main dish, but you can cut chicken smaller and wrap with a half a piece of bacon to make appetizers. As a main course I would serve it with an arugula salad with a lemon vinaigrette. Or try rocket and pomegranate salad for something a little fancier. Love things wrapped in bacon, I have a couple of those under my sleeve too! Bacon wrapped scallops with chili lime butter or asparagus bundles.2 large chicken breasts 8 slices of thin bacon kosher salt and cracked black pepper to season 3 tbls honey 2 tbls whole grain mustard juice of 1/2 lemon foil serves 2-3 prep and baking time 40 min 425°
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with a little cooking spray, set aside. Don’t use parchment paper like I tried 1st (will burn at the ovens hot temp). Preheat oven to 425°
Slice chicken breasts into 4 pieces, trying to keep them even in thickness.
Season with salt and pepper.
Starting on one end, wrap bacon fairly tightly, around the chicken. Place finished chicken on prepared sheet pan.
In a small bowl, mix together the mustard
and squeeze in lemon juice.
Brush only half of the marinade over the top of the chicken. At this point, you can cover with plastic and keep in the fridge and bake later.
Pop into the oven and bake 13-15 min until the bacon starts to brown.
Brush with the other half of the marinade and bake for another 13-15 min. Keep an eye on things, I flipped them once more because the second side was getting too crispy.
Serve with a lemon wedge and another drizzle of honey♥Enjoy
