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.

    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
