Bacon & Chevre Stuffed Chicken

Using THIS recipe as a guide, I made something new for dinner - and yes, it was delicious.

  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 2 oz chevre / goat cheese
  • 4 pieces of bacon, cooked & crumbled or chopped
  • 2 tbsp sliced spring onions, or green onions
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, spices to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  1. Slit chicken breasts at widest part and fold open onto plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness - they do not have to be thin.
  2. Combine goat cheese, bacon & onion in a small bowl.
  3. Put half of the mixture on half of one chicken breast and fold over to cover the cheese. Use toothpicks to hold closed.  Repeat with other chicken breast.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook chicken breasts about 4 minutes, till golden brown on each side.
  5. Move skillet into oven (or remove chicken from skillet & into pre-warmed glass dish), and cook at 350F for aprox 12 minutes.  Let rest 5 minutes before eating.

7.7.12 - Made for me, mom & dennis - turned out really well.  Can definitely make this again - very easy.
