I think this attempt at cooking came after watching an episode of You Gotta Eat Here. The host was at a restaurant where the chef was making stuffed chicken breast. I thought to myself, I feel like making that.
So then the question became what did I have in my fridge that I could use to make stuffed chicken? Well, obviously I had chicken. I also had some spinach, blue cheese and bacon. I thought what great ingredients to use as stuffing!
Well, one thing about me is that as much as like to play girl scout and be prepared and ready with a plan, I do often times change my mind last-minute. And that is what happened in this case. Stuffed chicken turned into bacon wrapped chicken.
The first thing I did was slice the chicken breast in half and with a mallet, flatten it slightly. I then seasoned with salt and pepper and layered spinach leaves down. On top of the spinach, layer some blue cheese. Now the fun part, wrapping it all with bacon.
Each chicken piece took about two strips of bacon, three if I was feeling generous and wanted full coverage. Then it all went into the oven to bake until the chicken reached 165 degrees and a few minutes under the broiler to crisp up the bacon. Then you have it, bacon wrapped chicken breast. =)
