Chicken paysan (Poulet a la paysanne)

For 4 people - 15 min prep - 25 min cooking


  • Baking sheet
  • Wire rack
  • Small bowl


  • 4 5 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 8-12 pieces bacon medium cut (not thick)


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF and line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper (Optional, but will facilitate the cleaning). Place a wire rack on top and set it aside.
  • Combine all of the spices into a small bowl and mix.
  • Then, season each chicken breast with 1 teaspoon of chicken seasoning, making sure to get both sides. Save the remaining spices for later.
  • Next, wrap each chicken breast with 2 to 3 pieces of bacon depending on how big they are. Start at one end and move to the other. Transfer each bacon wrapped chicken breast to the wire rack.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the chicken breasts with the remaining seasoning.
  • Bake chicken breasts at 400ºF for 25 minutes. Then, turn the heat up to 450ºF and bake for 5-10 more until the bacon is crispy. The internal temperature of the chicken should be at least 165ºF and the bacon should be fully cooked.
