Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake bacon on a baking sheet lined with foil for about 15 minutes or until crispy. (For thicker bacon you will need to cook longer.) When done, move bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to cool. (This can be done well in advance.)
Heat olive oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper.
Cook chicken breast on medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, until browned, then remove from the skillet. (Juices should run clear.) Set chicken on a plate and cover with a foil. (Skillet will be used again in a moment.)
Add minced garlic to the skillet and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes, or until lightly browned, on medium heat. Add heavy cream and butter and bring to boil.
