Why I Love This Recipe

Brining the chicken really moist, making for a flavorful and textural explosion in your mouth!

Ingredients You'll Need

- 4 chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded thin
- 1/2 cup salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Water for brining
- 8 slices bacon
- 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder or minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1/3 cup fresh or pickled jalapenos
- 4 slices of provolone cheese, 1 for each chicken breast


1. Place chicken in a large bowl and cover with 2 cups water. Add 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup sugar. Brine for 4 to 12 hours in the refrigerator

2. Heat grill to 350 degrees

3. Remove chicken from brine and wash to remove some of the salt

4. Butterfly chicken then pound thin. Wrap bacon around chicken and secure with a toothpick. Season chicken and bacon with pepper, garlic, and paprika.
