- Heat a cast iron skillet (or other oven safe pan) over medium heat.
- Cook the diced bacon until it starts to brown and is just beginning to get crispy on the sides.
- While the bacon is cooking, chop your brussels sprouts into slices or thin rounds, slice your lemon into rounds. Chop up your garlic and rosemary also.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Sprinkle the chicken with salt & pepper on either side. When the bacon is ready, add your garlic and chicken to the skillet to brown. It should just take about 5 minutes each side, depending on how thick your chicken breasts are.
- Once the chicken is browned, add your brussels sprouts and rosemary into the skillet.
- Season the pan with salt and pepper to taste (if necessary).
- Layer your slices of lemon on top of each piece of chicken.
- Use an oven mit and move your cast iron skillet to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken breasts, until the chicken is cooked through.
- Serve and enjoy!
