5 stars from 1 rating of Chicken Wrapped in Bacon with Lemon Sauce

I love experimenting in the kitchen, and I think I saw this concept while watching TV. I forgot what they called it but I did remember them wrapping chicken in bacon. While I was racking my brains for a quick lunch dish, I decided to do my own version of it. And by "my own version," I mean cooking with whatever I have in my kitchen.

Ingredients

Chicken stock, lemon, cornstarch, salt & pepper, rosemary, bacon, and chicken breasts

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Serves 4 people

Ingredients

  • 4-pc Chicken breast, boneless/ skinless
  • 1 pack Bacon
  • 1/2 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock
  • Lemon jucie, From half a lemon
  • Rosemary, Or any herbs you have.
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Substitute

  • No chicken stock? No probem, just dissolve a chicken bullion in a cup of warm water.

Instructions

  1. Pat dry chicken breast with paper towel then sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Wrapped the breast with a strip of bacon. It took me 2 bacon strips to wrap a chicken breast.
  3. Drench the chicken breast in cornstarch then place it back in the fridge for about 10-15 min so the cornstarch would stick to the chicken.
  4. Heat a pan and put enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan.
  5. Pan-fry the chicken. No need to cook the chicken through, we just want a golden brown crust to form around the chicken. Remove from oil and transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
  6. After frying all the chicken, remove excess oil from the pan then add chicken stock, lemon juice, and rosemary. I used dried rosemary but you can opt to use any fresh herbs you have in your kitchen. Bring to a simmer.
  7. 6. Put the chicken back in the pan and continue cooking for 20-25 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken. When cooking the chicken in the broth, no need to turn the chicken so the other side remains crispy.
  8. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy!
