  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, paprika, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
  3. Rub the spice mixture evenly over all sides of the chicken breasts.
  4. Wrap each chicken breast with 2 slices of bacon, ensuring the bacon ends are tucked underneath to secure them.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Add the bacon-wrapped chicken breasts to the skillet and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until the bacon is crispy.
  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  8. Remove the skillet from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired, and serve hot.
