Baked Chicken Breast Wrapped in Bacon With Chipotle Sauce

"I love this recipe because it's very simple to prepare and cook and is a hit at the dinner table. From my experience the best kind of bacon is to use the "center cut" type, it's more meat than fat and very tasty."

    Sauce was a bit runny, but flavors were excellent. Great idea, will make again but find a way to bulk up the sauce. Thanks for posting. I didn't want to heat up the kitchen, so did the chicken and bacon in the micro, that went well, about 15 min. Also used chipotle sauce (brand-Buffalo) which is basically pureed chipotle without opening a can you never finish. You can probably find in the Latino section of the grocery and will become a favorite
