Bacon Swiss Chicken

My wish for winter to hold off until December came to a halt today.  We had rain through out the morning that turned into snow.  The next few days our high will be in the 30's and low's in the teens.  To take my mind off the weather I decided to work on a new chicken dish and I think I came up with a winner.  The marinade brought a wonderful flavor to the chicken and the bacon and swiss cheese complimented nicely.

Bacon Swiss Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup white wine
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons McCormicks Molasses Bacon Seasonings
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 slices onion, about 1/4 inch 
8 slices bacon
4 slices thick swiss cheese
olive oil

For marinade mix together vegetable oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, white wine, oregano, McCormicks, salt and pepper and place them in a ziplock bag with chicken breasts.  Toss the chicken around so all the marinade is cover the chicken.  Place in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.

In a hot skillet sear chicken on both sides for about 4 minutes each side in a little olive oil I happened to fry up some bacon so I just seared the chicken in that.  Remove from skillet place a slice of onion on top of each breast and wrap with 2 slices of bacon around each breast secure with toothpick if needed. Place back in skillet and place in a 375º oven for about 25 - 30 minutes, half way through the cooking time flip chicken oven and continue cooking until done..  Place a slice of swiss cheese and each breast put back into oven just until the cheese melts.

Until Next Time,
