This Is The Best Thing You Can Do With Chicken Breasts
Chicken doesn't have to dried out. What's great about chicken is that the chicken skin is usually enough to keep whatever recipe you're using to cook the chicken moist and prevents it from being overcooked, even for a minute.
However, if flavor is what you're going after and you purchased chicken breast fillets without the skins on, it's hard to make it flavorful on its own. If you do not have the time to marinate or brine the chicken breasts so it stays juicy and delicious, you can do something else.
The best thing you can do to this kind of chicken breast is wrap it in bacon.
One of the best things about bacon, apart from it tasting delicious, is its ability to render its fat. This fat is what will keep your chicken moist as well as flavorful. As the bacon cooks and becomes crispy, the chicken benefits from the natural basting from the bacon drippings.
