Bacon Wrapped Spring Chicken


This was something super last minute and I basically invited it and used whatever i had in my fridge to make it.. Im sure there is already something with a name out there like this... But id like to call this  Bacon Wrapped Spring Stuffed Chicken! I know super long but whatever.. Its SO DELICIOUS! And the best part about it is... Chris loved it! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Stuffing:
1/4 cup of Cilantro
1/2 cup of Red and Green Bell Pepper
1/4 cup of Onion
1/2 cup of Spinach
1 medium sized Tomato
1/4 cup Blue Cheese Crumbles
1 baby Lime (squeezed)
Chicken:
2 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves defrosted
1/4 tsp of Sea Salt and Ground Pepper
1/2 tsp minced garlic
Toppings:
1/4 Avocado thinly sliced



Directions:

Preheat oven to 375º. Next you want to get your Chicken and slice a few areas in the middle of each Chicken so that you have space to stuff your Chicken. (Don't cut too deep). Then put your Sea Salt (or normal salt if you prefer), Pepper, and your Minced Garlic in the palm of your hand, and rub both Chickens with the mixture.

 



Next, get your Cilantro, Red and Green Bell Pepper, Onion, Spinach, Tomato, and Chop it. Place it in a small bowl so you can mix Ingredients together. Once ingredients are mixed in bowl, get you one small lime and squeeze the juice on top of the veggies. Mix again. 




Finally, for the stuffing. Place the Chicken on a baking sheet with foil. Then stuff both Chicken Breast halves with the mixture in the bowl. 



Finally you want to wrap your Chicken with the Turkey Bacon (I use Turkey Bacon because it has less fat, and is so much better for you). Wrap 2 strips of Turkey Bacon horizontally and 1 strip vertically. You may use toothpicks to hold the bacon in place. Do for both Chickens. Then place Chicken in oven for 40 min. Until Chicken temp is close to 180º.




Meanwhile that’s cooking, I made some brown rice since brown rice takes about 30 minutes to cook fully. And when finished I sliced up my Avocados and stuffed the Chicken lastly with the Blue Cheese Crumbles. DELICIOUS!
