Last night Ian and I went over to the Pearl's house for dinner, and our good friend Allison introduced me to this amazing chicken recipe! This was seriously the best chicken I have ever tasted, and I am definitely a chicken lover! Maple and bacon together are the most amazing pair to begin with, so basically putting it on anything will make it taste good. Not only is this dish filled with sweet and salty goodness, but it is also so easy!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
- 8 slices of bacon, cooked separately
- 4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
Place the chicken in a pan and top with cooked bacon. Whisk the maple syrup and mustard together in a small bowl, then pour on top of the chicken. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover it with foil and bake for about an hour, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees. Enjoy!
