My family liked this recipe. I might substitute a different spice for the rosemary. This is just a family preference.

Very easy and tasty. Just be sure to not overcook the chicken. I served it with rice pilaf, and a salad and it was a quick, easy and tasty meal!

This recipe is so simple to make, but looks and tastes very impressive. I made it the first time as written with good results. The second time I made it, I cooked the bacon for about 1 minute in the microwave, and dabbed with paper towels to get rid of some of the excess fat. I let it cool off, and then wrapped the chicken. This helped crisp the bacon during the baking process. I also drizzled each chicken breast with about 1 tsp. of maple syrup for a litte something extra.

Simple recipe and so good! I followed the suggestions of one user to precook the bacon for a minute and drizzle some maple syrup

This recipe is fantastic! I used chicken thighs (boneless skinless) so meat was extra flavorful and moist! I would suggest using fresh rosemary twigs if you like rosemary. Also, I followed others advice and used smaller pieces of chicken so they cooked faster. I roasted carrots, dutch baby potatoes, and broccoli with olive oil and rosemary and drizzled a little of the bacon-chicken runoff over them right before serving. Delish!

Very good - I brushed on some BBQ sauce the last 10-15 minutes as well as adding some oregano and basil along with the rosemary. Served with a delightful spinach/blueberry/grapefruit salad with a cumin dressing and leftover cheese grits fried as a cake. DH thought it could be a restaurant meal! Thanks!

This recipe just seemed to be missing something. I LOVED the moistness of the chicken after roasting in the bacon. However, the overall product just seemed a little lack luster to me. It has everything I love, bacon, rosemary, chicken, but for some reason just didn't provide that wow factor. It was good, just not great IMHO. I may try this again with different seasonings, perhaps oregeno, cayenne?

Definitely easy to make! I pounded my chicken breasts and broiled the bacon for 2-3 minutes in the toaster oven first. Mine was actually just a bit overcooked at 425 for 15 then 375 for 15 so watch it carefully! I'll use a meat thermometer next time. Delicious flavor. Served with green beans & bread.
