    Serves: 4 

    • 4 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 4 chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
    • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
    • 4 rashers bacon

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:16min  ›  Ready in:26min 

    1. Preheat a barbecue for medium-high heat then lightly oil the grate.
    2. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon garlic powder on a chicken breast then season with salt and pepper. Lay one rosemary sprig on the chicken breast. Wrap the bacon around the chicken to hold the rosemary on. Secure the bacon with a toothpick or an additional thick rosemary stem.
    3. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, 8 minutes per side. Stay near the barbecue to put out any wee fire from the bacon. Remove the toothpicks before serving.

    This is a great summer recipe - quick, fresh tasting and delicious too! I used thin chicken breasts so that the bacon and rosemary didn't get overdone. The rosemary flavor is very subtle, with the bacon flavor being stronger. It is an elegant dish that would be impressive for guests, but is simple enough to enjoy on a busy weeknight as well.  -  19 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    HOLY !!! Um.. SERIOUSLY... BEST chicken that's ever come off my grill. I dont like bacon, and I dont like rosemary, but this was FANTABULOUS!! I will be making this as often as possible. Oh, and I didnt have fresh rosemary, so I used dried rosemary and it was still perfect. The best part is all I have to keep on my grocery list is bacon and chicken. Garlic powder and rosemary are always in the cabinet. THANK YOU SKOO!!!  -  28 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We made this exactly as written and it was so very good. Don't let the amount of garlic powder scare you away! We sprinkled 1tsp on each half breast (1/2 tsp on each side). The bacon wasn't super crispy but that didn't take anything at all away from this. We even accidentally lost track of time and the probe said 190 degrees...we panicked a got it off the grill asap and it was still moist and tasted great!! VERY EASY! Might try a different bacon next time for variety.  -  19 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
