BLT Chicken
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 6 cups fresh lettuce
  • 2 slices of cooked bacon per chicken breast (if you have 4 breasts, you'll need 8 slices of bacon)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard or dry mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade for serving. Pour the remaining marinade all over the chicken and marinade in the fridge for at least 1 hour up to 24 hours.
  2. Once the chicken is finished marinading, preheat the oven to 375. Salt and pepper the chicken and cook the chicken in a baking dish for 35 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, place the lettuce on a large serving plate. Cut 2 of the tomatoes in thick slices. Place the tomato slices on top of the lettuce and add a pinch of salt and pepper to the tomato slices. When the chicken is finished cooking, place the chicken on top of the sliced tomatoes. Lay 2 slices of cooked bacon over each chicken breast. Dice the remaining tomato, and put the diced tomatoes on top of the chicken. Pour the reserved 2 tablespoons of marinade all over the top of the diced tomatoes. Top with the remaining 2 tablespoons of fresh basil. Enjoy!
You can cook the bacon before you cook the chicken. Put the bacon slices on a baking pan and put the pan in a COLD oven. Turn the oven to 375. Set a timer for 15-18 minutes. The bacon should be cooked perfectly around 15-18 minutes (or longer, depending on how thick it is).
