Nice and juicy, sweet and savory, with just the right amount of kick.
boneless skinless chicken breast
brown sugar, packed
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Spray roasting pan and its rack with cooking spray.
Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt, paprika, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
Wrap uncooked bacon slices around seasoned breasts, overlapping until completely covered -- I had 1.75 lbs of chicken here, and 12 oz of bacon worked well to cover both pieces.
Season just the tops of the bacon wrapped breasts with chili powder, press brown sugar into the top of each, and add black pepper to taste.
Bake on rack in roasting pan at 425 degrees for 50 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Slice and serve hot. (Use an electric knife if you have one; it's easier to make nice even slices through the bacon.)
The Zaycon chicken breasts I used here were large and took a while to cook through; reduce the cooking time accordingly if your chicken is thinner.
