Ingredients

  • FOR THE MARINADE:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp steak seasoning
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary minced (can substitute 1/2 tsp dried rosemary leaves)
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 8 slices bacon chopped
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce

Instructions

  • MARINATE THE CHICKEN:
  • To a large ziploc bag, add the marinade ingredients, twist with your hand (or zip closed) and shake to combine well. Pierce chicken breasts with a fork a few times, add to bag, seal, place on a plate and refrigerate for 2 hours, or up to 2 days.
  • MAKE THE GLAZE:
  • Chop bacon into small slices and add to a large sauce pan. Cook until crisp, remove to a paper towel lined plate. Drain grease from the saucepan, but do NOT wipe it clean.
  • Add remaining glaze ingredients, whisk to combine. Heat over MED heat until it bubbles up. Add cooked bacon and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. It will thicken as it cools.
  • COOK THE CHICKEN:
  • Preheat grill or large skillet on MED-HIGH heat. Add a drizzle of olive or vegetable oil and cook chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear.
  • Top chicken with bacon glaze and enjoy!
