Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly salt and pepper the chicken breasts. Wrap two pieces of bacon around each chicken breast, forming an X in the middle of the skin side of each breast. Tuck two sprigs of thyme behind the bacon.

Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan that can go into the oven over medium-high heat. Place the chicken breasts, bacon-side down in the pan and cook until the bacon and chicken skin is browned. Turn over and cook until the other side is browned.

Drain off the fat and add the stock or water, cream and garlic. Bring to a boil and place in the oven. Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes until the cream has thickened.

Remove from the oven and season with salt and pepper. Let rest a few minutes before serving.
