Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce makes a super easy weeknight meal and only requires 4 ingredients, plus salt and pepper.
Bourbon, Bacon, BBQ Sauce. You can’t go wrong with the 3 B’s.
Bourbon BBQ Sauce
The bourbon gets mixed into your favorite BBQ sauce. I used Jack Daniels Honey, but you can use any bourbon.
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!
USe regular-cut bacon, not thick-cut bacon. It takes too long to crisp up.
