How To Make BBacon Wrapped Chicken with Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce

Chicken breasts are cut in half lengthwise to maximize the bacon and bbq sauce to chicken ratio.

The chicken is brushed with bourbon bbq sauce and wrapped in bacon

Into the oven the chicken goes for 20 minutes. It’s basted again and placed back in the oven to cook 10-15 more minutes. One last baste and a few minutes under the broiler crisps up the bacon and finishes this meal off.

It’s a super tasty meal that’s a cinch to make!

Recipe Tip

USe regular-cut bacon, not thick-cut bacon. It takes too long to crisp up.

  1. What can I make this with?? Like rice or mashed potatoes etc? I’m trying to make this for Father’s Day but i don’t know what to make it with. But this recipe is literally everything my father loves especially the jack Daniels sauce!

  2. This was an awesome dish. I marinated for four hours once wrapped in bacon. For an addition I added piri piri sauce to the marinade.

  3. Hi. This looks yum. I just wanted to check that if I make it for a dinner party, how much earlier do u think I can make it , like a few hours should be OK? And how do u recommend I re heat it so that the sauce and chicken doesn’t dry out.
    Look forward to hearing from u soon
