Ingredients

FOR THE CHICKEN

  • 4 (4 ounces each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 8 to 12 slices bacon (NOTE: I use low-sodium bacon and just sprinkle a bit of salt on top of the bacon after I've wrapped the chicken breasts.)

FOR THE MAPLE SYRUP GLAZE

  • 1/4 cup sugar free low carb maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • fresh cracked pepper, for topping, optional
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish, optional

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • Rub each chicken breast with prepared seasoning mix.
  • Wrap each chicken breast with bacon slices and transfer to prepared baking dish, seam-side down.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together maple syrup and dijon mustard; whisk until well combined.
  • Brush each chicken breast with maple syrup glaze.
  • Crack fresh ground pepper over each chicken breast.
  • Bake for 22 to 25 minutes at 425˚F, or until done, and brush/baste with the juices couple of times during baking. Chicken is done when internal temperature reaches 165˚F. I suggest to start checking for doneness at around the 20-minute mark.
  • If the bacon is not fully caramelized after cooking, place the baking dish under the broiler for 2 minutes to finish it off.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Spoon juices over chicken and garnish with chopped parsley.
  • Serve.

HOW TO MAKE AHEAD
  • You can make this recipe 1 day ahead of time. Prepare the chicken with the bacon and store in an airtight container; keep refrigerated until ready to use. When ready, take chicken out of the fridge 15 minutes before cooking; whip up the maple glaze, brush the chicken breasts with the prepared glaze, and bake.
