Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken (Cheat Meal!)

Visiting the archives again!!!  But I just had to share this with you!!!  It is a favorite!  I made it for Jay and I and we loved it…and when my boss saw a picture she whined that she wasn’t eating it.  Encouraged by these reviews, I made it for my mom when she visited from Washington…which is saying something because I wanted to show her that I’ve become a big girl and can cook well now 😉  So the fact that I trusted this recipe should say something!  We also took it to one of our pastor’s (and dearest friend’s) house.  EVERYONE raved about this.  I mean…how can you go wrong with feta, garlic, and bacon?!  Omggggg!! 🙂  Oh, and, just so you know…..this is a bit of a cheat meal 😉

Thanks to Pinterest for helping me find this gem…and to deliciously-thin.com for being a genius and coming up with it!  All I did was up the garlic amount. I tend to double the garlic in most recipes.  😀

So, here’s what you need:

  • 6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Box Frozen Spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 C Mayo
  • 8 oz Feta Cheese.  Yummmmm.
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 12 Slices Bacon (Turkey, if you are attempting to be “good”)
  • Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

 

And here’s how you do it:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Pound the chicken breasts with a mallet, or put them in a Ziploc and seal (you don’t wanna squirt chicken juice all over your kitchen) and pound the crap out of it with a pan.  That’s what I usually do.  Get them even and decently thin.
  3. Carefully slice the chicken breasts long ways, not cutting all the way through so you have a sort of flap 🙂  Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Mix together the mayo, feta, spinach, and garlic in a bowl.  Make sure you don’t have a bunch of liquid in the spinach before you mix it in.  You can always use paper towels to sop some of it up 🙂
  5. Stuff the chicken breasts with your feta mixture…you may need to secure them closed with a couple of toothpicks if it looks like its gonna get messy.
  6. Sprinkle the chicken with paprika.
  7. Wrap with two pieces of bacon.  Mmmm.
  8. Place in a casserole dish, with the seam side of the bacon down.
  9. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the chicken is done 🙂
  10. Enjoy!!!!  SO good!
