Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    4 slices bacon, cooked
    2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tbsp chopped red onion
    2-1/4 inch sliced tomato

Directions

Place bacon slices on a sheet pan and bake in a preheated 400*F oven for about 10 minutes until half cooked.
Remove and reserve.
Working on a sheet pan, coat the chicken breast with olive oil and garlic.
Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
Next, wrap 2 pieces of bacon strips criss cross around each piece of chicken forming an "X' pattern in the center. Sprinkle with the diced onion and place a thick slice of tomato and a couple sprigs of fresh thyme in the center of each breast, tucked under the bacon.
Bake until chicken is completely cooked and reaches an internal temperature of 165*F, about 30 minutes.

    Very good! If you turn the temperature of oven down to 325 and bake for 45 mins. chicken will stay jucier - 7/18/09

    Very much like my own recipe, except I brine the chicken breasts overnight in salt/sugar/wine/water to cover. This prevents the chicken from drying out. If I have some thin asparagus spears, I will wrap them up in there too! - 2/2/09

    Me and my husband enjoyed this dish. I covered it with foil half-way through cooking in order to retain some moisture in the chicken. I will be making this again! - 1/29/09

    This recipe was pretty easy & that is what I look for...tasty & easy. I replace thyme with cilantro for zest. I made a salsa mix from the tomatoe, onion & cilantro by placing in my food processor. It turned out pretty good. - 7/9/08

    Great recipe! I made it last night for dinner and left out the salt. I only had three slices of bacon I had one on mine and my husband had two - it was still delicious! Great flavor and easy to make :) - 7/22/09

    It was yum. I used chicken thigh fillets instead of breast, thighs aren't as dry. - 2/5/09

    I find chicken breast tends to be dry. But the flavors were really nice, and I'll make this again. Need to keep the chicken moist somehow. My Sweetie loved it and wants more. - 1/28/09

    made this tonight and my husband and I loved it. I didn't have any thyme, so I used oregano instead. Instead of adding olive oil, I rolled the chicken in the bacon drippings that were left after cooking the bacon for 10 minutes. Thanks for this great recipe! - 6/2/08

    Very tasty, I used a little spaghetti sauce instead of olive oil, kept it from drying out. Cooked on 350 for half an hour, it was great! Thanks for sharing =) - 5/27/08
