Tie with kitchen twine in three places, sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Prepare the grill, oil the grates and rub the chicken with a little oil. Over direct heat, cook the chicken about 4 minutes on each side.
Move them to indirect heat and continue to cook another 10 -12 minutes.For the sauce, saute the bacon and shallots until the bacon is crispy, sprinkle in the flour, stir, then add in the chicken broth a little at a time stirring constantly until you have a nice creamy sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the twine from the chicken breast, plate them and spoon the sauce over the top! Delicious!
