DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In an oven-safe skillet (NOT cast iron), cook bacon over medium heat or until crispy and fat-rendered. Set bacon slices aside on a paper towel to drain. Once cooled, crumble and set aside. Do not drain bacon fat from skillet.
  • While bacon is cooking, season chicken breasts on both sides with thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Then dust both wides of each breast with 1 tbs. flour each.
  • Bring skillet to medium-high heat. Lightly brown both sides of chicken breasts for approximately five minutes each side. Don't worry if they don't cook through. Remove breasts to a clean plate, cover and set aside.
  • Remove skillet from heat and deglaze with white wine. Remove from heat.
  • Return breasts to skillet, arrange crumbled bacon evenly over both and arrange gouda slices atop bacon layer.
  • Roast in oven for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, and cheese has melted and begun to brown.
