makes four servings

8 bacon strips
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, 6oz each
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
4 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese

Place bacon in an ungreased baking pan. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Place chicken in an ungreased 13x9 baking pan, brush with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with tomatoes and basil. Wrap each in two bacon strips, arranging bacon in a crisscross. Bake, uncovered, at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170. Top with cheese and bake 1 minute longer or until melted.
