  • 24 ounces (696g) boneless skinless chicken breasts 4 average-size chicken breasts
  • 8 slices bacon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C.
  • Lightly spray a baking dish with oil.
  • Wrap each chicken breast in bacon (I used two strips per chicken breast) and secure with toothpicks if needed.
  • Place the bacon wrapped chicken on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
  • When the chicken is done the bacon should be just about to crisp and the internal temperature of the chicken should be at least 165 degrees F or 194 degrees C.
  • Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes, then remove toothpicks (if any) before serving.


  • Thoroughly dry the chicken with paper towels before wrapping it with bacon. 
  • Season the chicken with your favorite blend of herbs and spices if desired. 
  • Use toothpicks to secure the bacon, if necessary.
  • You may need to use more than one piece of bacon per chicken breast, depending on the size of chicken and bacon.
  • Slice larger chicken breasts in half then wrap each half with bacon. The cooking time will be less, so be sure to use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
  • Double this recipe for a large family, when serving guests, or for weekly meal prep.
  • Don’t overcook the chicken so it will be juicy and tender. 
  • Be sure to remove any toothpicks before serving. 
  • Cook until an instant thermometer reads 165 degrees F or 74 degrees C when inserted into the thickest part of the chicken.
  • Storage - keep leftovers in an airtight container inside the fridge for 4 days.
  • There are 7 WW Blue Plan SmartPoints in one serving of this.
