The secret to keeping these bacon wrapped chicken breasts so moist, tender, and flavorful (besides the bacon wrapping), is to bathe the chicken in a saltwater and sugar brine for 30 minutes before seasoning and wrapping the breasts in bacon. The difference the brine makes is unmistakable and is well worth the extra 30 minutes of basically hands-off time.
I had chicken breasts in the freezer, apple cider in the fridge, a half a box of gingersnaps left in the pantry, a few sweet potatoes that I needed to use before they went bad, and friends coming for dinner.
The result was this Apple Cider Braised Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Gingersnaps. This dinner FAR surpassed my expectations, and was a massive hit with our guests! Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!!
