This week's recipe was made up after checking out what ingredients I had left in the fridge, the night before a semi-monthly grocery shopping expedition. (Expedition makes it sound exciting, don't judge.)
Bacon-Wrapped Cheesy Chicken Bundles
1 large Chicken Breast (for 2 people)
4 slices of uncooked bacon (cut in half)
½ large White Onion
2 Slices of Provolone Cheese (cut in half)
½ cup of BBQ Sauce
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take the chicken breast and cut it into fourths (2 pieces per person). Set aside. Take 4 strips of uncooked bacon and also cut them in half. (Two half pieces of bacon is used to wrap the chicken) Set aside. Take the 2 pieces of Provolone cheese and cut them in half. Set aside.
Slice onion into thin slices.
In a shallow baking dish, place one piece of chicken and season with salt and pepper. Top chicken with cheese and then sliced onion. Wrap 2 bacon slices around each chicken bundle, one piece going over the length and the other going over the width. Repeat these steps for the 3 other pieces of chicken and assemble into bacon-wrapped bundles.
Top each bundle with a little BBQ Sauce and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
