Bacon Wrapped Chicken

## Season 1, Episode 6 ##

Hello everyone. Welcome to Norah’s Cooking Diary.

In this video I am going to share with you a Bacon Wrapped Chicken recipe. This chicken recipe is extremely easy to prepare and is perfect for a quick meal.

The combination of herbed spreadable cheese and basil leaves elevate the flavor of this simple chicken recipe to another level. The rashers of bacon wrapped around the chicken also helps to conceal the moisture of the chicken. As the chicken breast is being cooked, the bacon will turn crispy and adds a nice smoky flavor to it. Simply delicious.

Several notes here to share with you:

  • I used basil and dried tomatoes spreadable cheese. You could use any other types of herbed spreadable cheese that you prefer.
  • If you wish to omit the bacon, you could make a slit through the center of the chicken breast to form a pocket and then stuff the basil leaves and spreadable cheese into it instead.
  • Bake the bacon wrapped chicken for 30 to 35 minutes or until the bacon looks crisp/golden and the chicken cooked through. The chicken breast is usually cooked if the juices from the chicken run clear when the meat is pierced with the tip of a knife. Cooking time will vary depending on the quantity and thickness of the chicken breast.
  • I used a fan-forced oven set to 180 degree Celsius to bake the bacon wrapped chicken. If you have a conventional oven, the temperature would be 200 degree Celsius.

Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:

Ingredients for Bacon Wrapped Chicken

  • 3 Pcs Chicken Breast
  • 6 Rashers Smoked Bacon
  • 120 Gm Herbed Spreadable Cheese, sliced into 3 portions
  • 9 Pcs Fresh Basil Leaves
  • ¼ Tsp Salt (I use Himalayan Pink Salt)
  • ¼ Tsp Black Pepper Coarse

Method of Preparation

  1. Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper on both sides. Arrange the herbed spreadable cheese and basil leaves on top of each chicken breast. Wrap 2 rashers of bacon around each chicken fillet to enclose the cheese and basil leaves.

  2. Arrange the chicken wrapped with seam-side down in a shallow baking dish.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Bake the bacon wrapped chicken for 30 minutes or until the bacon turns crisp/golden and the chicken cooked through.

  4. Remove the cooked bacon wrapped chicken from the oven and serve warm/hot with the sides of your choice.

Happy cooking ;-)
