4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 slices of bacon
1 cup heavy cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped parsley (for garnish)
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks.
Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat.
Add the wrapped chicken and cook until the bacon is crispy, about 3-5 minutes per side.
Remove the chicken and set aside. In the same skillet, add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
Stir in heavy cream, paprika, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning the sauce over the bacon-wrapped chicken.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
