Ingredients

2
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/2 c
dijon mustard
4 Tbsp
dijon mustard
2 Tbsp
mayonnaise (miracle whip would be good too)
just a pinch
garlic salt and pepper
8 slice
bacon
4
toothpicks

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375*. Have ready a baking dish.
2
Slice chicken breasts in half, lengthwise, to halve the thickness. Place in bowl or ziplock bag with 1/2 cup of dijon. Marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours, or (if less) as long as you can. **I've done this without marinating and it's good, just not quite as flavorful.
3
In a bowl mix together the mayonnaise, the garlic salt, the pepper, and the 4 tablespoons dijon. Dip each chicken breast half in mixture.
4
On a plate place two strips of bacon in an X. Roll up the chicken breast half starting with the small end (like a backwards crescent roll). Wrap the bacon around the roll, make sure it is snug, secure in the center with toothpick. Repeat with remaining 3 pieces of chicken.
5
Place each chicken bundle in baking dish. Spoon any remaining mayo/dijon mixture over the top.
6
Bake for 45 minutes, or until juices run clear, or internal chicken temp is 165*. Broil briefly to crisp bacon.
