  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp minced garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder

Ingredients:

  • 4 ( 4 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken (I use thinly sliced chicken breasts)
  • 8 slices of hormel precooked black label bacon or center cut bacon slices

Directions:

  1. In a ziplock bag combine all marinate ingredients and chicken breasts. Close bag and flip around until all ingredients are incorporated. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
  2. Preheat lightly greased cast iron grill or outdoor grill to medium heat. ( I use THIS indoor grilling pan)
  3. Place chicken breasts on grill and cook until chicken is no longer translucent in the middle.
  4. After the chicken is finished cooking, transfer the chicken breasts to baking sheet covered in parchment paper or foil. Be sure to spray foil with non stick cooking spray.
