Give this tasty recipe a try the next time your bacon cravings kick in!
2 Chicken Breasts
2 slices extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 sweet red or orange pepper
4 pieces bacon
Carefully cut open chicken breasts with a long thin knife. You’ll want to butterfly them, but be careful to not cut yourself or pull the knife up or down to get an uneven cut.
Season inside with salt and pepper.
Cut cheddar slices in half so you can lay them inside chicken and not overhang.
Cut pepper into long strips that lay flat.
Lay into chicken, fold chicken back up.
Carefully wrap chicken with bacon.
If you are having a hard time, you can use a toothpick to keep the chicken closed and the bacon from sliding off- but that is totally optional.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, check chicken’s internal temp.
When chicken is cooked thoroughly, set to broil and crisp bacon under broiler for about 2 minutes.
Serve with veggies and a salad, rice or other side dish and enjoy!
