This is a wonderful dish! Instead of using a marinade, I make my own with olive oil, white vinegar, garlic, and Italian seasoning. I use two pieces of thin cut chicken breast instead of slicing a regluar breast in half, I double the amount of provolone, keep the same ammount of basil, leave out the tomato, double the amount of bacon, and leave off the parmesan. I cook it on a rack set over a baking sheet so that the bacon will crisp (instead of cook in the juices).This tastes especially good with "Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes", found here on this site. EDIT: I've made more changes to this dish since I first made it. I now marinade thin cut chicken breast in Italian dressing overnight, drain it, spread basil pesto on the insides of the chicken, lay double the amount of provolone (smoked provolone is best, yum) on one slice of chicken, top it with another slice of chicken, and wrap it in double the amount of bacon (first lengthwise, then widthwise, then lengthwise again to remove the need for toothpicks). The basil pesto makes a huge difference and really enhances the taste of the dish, and the more fat the bacon has in it, the better. It seems to soak into the chicken and leave it extra tender. Everyone LOVES this recipe!
