Crispy Oven-Roasted Chicken with Roasted Garlic, Pancetta, and Rosemary

Nuvita Biscuits

Crispy chicken goes perfectly with smoky bacon and the earthly flavors of roasted garlic and rosemary.


  • 6 boneless, skin-on chicken-breast halves
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 pound(s) pancetta or slab bacon,¬†cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 15 clove(s) garlic
  • Canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh rosemary,¬†chopped, plus sprigs for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Salt and pepper each piece. Set aside.
  2. In a medium ovenproof skillet over medium heat, cook the pancetta until crispy, about 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, and set aside. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat. Add the olive oil and garlic. Cook until the cloves are golden, then bake in the oven until the cloves are soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully remove the pan from the oven, and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large ovenproof skillet, heat 1 inch of canola oil over high heat until very hot but not smoking. Carefully place the chicken skin-side down in the hot oil. Let cook 3 to 4 minutes to start crisping the skin. Do not turn. Carefully transfer the pan to the oven, and bake until the chicken is cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, and plate.

    Hi, I read/heard EVOO is really good for your skin so I wanted to try it because I just had a recent break out. But I only have Extra Virgin Olive Oil Roasted Garlic Flavored right now, does it matter?

    I’m eating some crispy chicken with garlic sauce and I see a white garnish that looks like onion, but it definitely does not taste like it. It is thicker than an onion and has a sweet taste to it. I see it with carrots too. Does anybody know the name of this white garnish?
