This is super speedy and very delicious, not to mention plain simple. The bacon smells amazing while it cooks, so you’ll be guaranteed to be really hungry by the time it’s ready to eat.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 rasher bacon, smoked or unsmoked
1 chicken breast
1 tablespoon olive oil

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Simply wrap the bacon rasher around the chicken breast and tuck the ends underneath.
  2. Lay the bacon-wrapped chicken breast on a small roasting tray. Spoon the olive oil over the chicken.
  3. Put in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven after 20 minutes and serve hot.

Optional extras:

  • I have left this very simple to prove how easy it can be. However, you could use garlic and crush it then rub it onto the chicken breast skin before you wrap it in the bacon. You might also want to take a sprig of rosemary or thyme and tuck it under the bacon for added flavour. Another delicious thing to do is take a slice of cheese (Cheddar would be fine, but another great option would be a little bit of blue cheese) just place a small slice of it under the bacon before you put it all in the oven.

Serving suggestions:

  • Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and some pasta, rice or a juicy tomato salad.

Leftovers:

  • You can keep the cooked chicken in your fridge for 2 days. To reheat it, put it in an ovenproof dish, cover it with foil and warm it in an oven set to 110°C. It should take about 15 minutes to become piping hot. Served cold, it would be delicious sliced in a salad or with some couscous. You could even take it into uni for lunch.
