  • 3 Medium boneless chicken breasts
  • 9 Slices bacon
  • 1 Teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 Pinch cinnamon
  • 1 Pinch ground clove
  • 2 Cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 Cup cooking sherry
  • Ground pepper to taste


Grind the garlic cloves into a paste in a mortar and pestle, and then add the vinegar, cinnamon and clove. Mix until well blended. Rinse the chicken breasts, pat them dry and cover them with the vinegar, spice and garlic mixture. Wrap the bacon around the chicken breasts, and secure the bacon strips with a toothpick. Place the breasts in a casserole dish. Add the sherry and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes. Turn the breasts over and cook until tender, basting them with the pan juices occasionally.

Serve with red rice.
