Combine zest, chopped basil, half the garlic, panko, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season chicken all over with salt and 2 tsp Tuscan Heat Spice (we sent more). Evenly spread sour cream on top side of chicken. Press panko mixture on top (you may have some panko left over).

Transfer chicken to one side of prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, 5-8 minutes. Remove from oven and toss broccoli, remaining garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, and salt on opposite side of sheet. Return to oven until broccoli is tender and chicken is browned and cooked through, 10-15 minutes more.

Meanwhile, dice bacon into ½-inch pieces. Place in a medium pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 15 minutes. (TIP: If bacon browns too quickly, lower heat.) Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Toss broccoli with a squeeze of lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
