Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breast

INGREDIENTS

  • Olive oil spray
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey or a low carb alternative
  • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (6-7 oz each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 strips bacon

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a roasting pan with foil and fit it with a roasting rack. Spray the roasting rack with olive oil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the mustard and honey. Divide into two portions. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Wrap each chicken breast with 2 strips of bacon.
  • Place the wrapped chicken breasts on the prepared roasting rack. Brush them with half the mustard-honey sauce. Wash the basting brush with warm soapy water and keep the other half of the sauce for brushing the chicken breasts when they finish cooking.
  • Bake the chicken breasts for 15-20 minutes, until they reach an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees F and the bacon is browned and crispy.
  • Allow the chicken breasts to rest, loosely covered with foil, about 10 minutes, then brush the tops with the remaining sauce and serve.
