Notes & tips for this baked bacon wrapped chicken

  • In the recipe instructions, it says to use a meat tenderizer to flatten the chicken breast, but you could use any utensil that’s sturdy & heavy but isn’t breakable. For example, the recipe video in this post uses a standard rolling pin.
  • And speaking of flattening the chicken breast, make sure the surface you do this on isn’t breakable, such as a tile countertop. If you’re unsure about your surface, place a wood cutting board on top to help absorb some of the impact.
  • How can you tell when chicken is fully cooked?

    It’s always useful to know how to determine when your chicken dish has finished cooking because, while every recipe has a suggested cooking time, your particular ingredients or cooking apparatus may vary.

  • For best results, use a meat thermometer. Chicken is done when the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
  • Poke the chicken with a sharp utensil. If it’s done, the juices should run clear. If the juices are pink or red, it needs to be cooked more.
  • In ideal circumstances, cooked chicken should be pale and opaque. And while this is a helpful visual guide, it is not a hard rule. Even fully cooked chicken could have a pink tint. Other ingredients in the dish (such as the bacon in this recipe, which has nitrates, known for giving a red hue) can change the color of the meat and make it hard to do a visual test. So whenever in doubt, always use the first two rules (temperature and juice color) to help confirm your chicken is done and avoid the temptation to overcook.
