This came about when I combined my cravings.


  1. Turn oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a glass baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl combine oil, bacon, garlic, rosemary, and pepper, stirring until well blended.
  4. Spoon bacon mixture over chicken.
  5. Bake at 350º for 45-55 minutes or until chicken is done.
  6. Sprinkle with cheese 5-10 minutes before removing chicken from the oven.
  7. Serve right away.

This was okay, but it was missing something. Four cloves of garlic was too strong for the rest of the ingredients. The chicken turned out a little chewy, which I didn't expect with all the bacon drippings. I won't be making this one again, but it didn't ruin dinner either. It used up the items I had on hand. Handy recipe.

This was tasty. I would have given five stars, but the cooking time was too long. Against my judgment, I followed the time listed. The chicken turned out dry. I subbed turkey bacon with good results. I also subbed parsley for the rosemary. I will make again, but after I adjust the cooking time. Thanks for posting!

This recipe was wonderful. I've made it twice now. Like the other users, I didn't cook it quite as long. The first batch was WAY too garlic-y! However, I halved the amount of garlic, upped the bacon, cut back the cooking time and this is now one of our regular chicken recipes. Perfect for a low-carb diet. If you cut down on the bacon, it's not even that fatty!
