Grilled chicken is a staple in our house because it is delicious, goes with everything and doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare. Sometimes I just season it with dry rubs or spices, other times I marinate it before throwing it on the grill. For Baconfest, I wrapped it in bacon with a rosemary spring. I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious it was!
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 10 min; Cook Time – 15 min
Ingredients for 4 servings:
4 tsp. garlic powder
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
4 springs fresh rosemary
4 thick slices bacon
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
Preparing Grilled Chicken:
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper on each chicken breast.
Lay one rosemary sprig on top of the chicken and wrap the bacon around the chicken to hold the rosemary in place. Secure with a toothpick.
Cook chicken approximately 8 minutes per side until the internal temperature reaches 165 Degrees.
Whenever you cook bacon on the grill, the grease can cause the fire to flare up. Stick close by and don’t leave the grill unattended.
