This is a recipe that looks much more difficult than it really is. The presentation of this dish will wow your family and any friends you happen to serve it to. Even though this dish looks like it’s made for the president, it’s actually really easy and quite delicious.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken


What you need:

  • 1 pound sliced bacon
  • 1 (8 ounce) package dry bread stuffing mix
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste

What you do:

Preheat your oven to 375. While it’s preheating cook your bacon in the microwave until it’s about half way done. (you don’t want to cook it all the way or it won’t wrap around your chicken)

Prepare the stuffing according to package directions. While that’s cooking get your bacon ready. You are going to set up sets of 3 pieces of bacon, two pieces going up and down and one going across.(the two up and down will go around the chicken and the other piece will go around from end to end)

Place a piece of chicken on top of the bacon strips. Separate the stuffing into 6 portions. Put it on top of each piece of chicken making a log of stuffing. Pull your chicken up and around the stuffing ~ make sure to bring the bacon with it.  Use toothpicks to secure the chicken and bacon around the stuffing. (You could use string as well)

Season the chicken with pepper and garlic. Put your chicken bundles in a roasting pan, and loosely cover it with foil.

Pop them in the oven for about 30 minutes, then take the foil off and let them cook for another 10 minutes or so until the bacon and chicken are done.  (make sure you chicken runs clear)

Make it a meal:

You have a great looking protein dish here, but it’s missing veggies!! You could easily make this a meal by adding steamed broccoli or even a nice side salad. You can serve the chicken as it is or you can make a chicken gravy for it. You could also use a little cream of chicken soup in the bottom of the pan to keep it super moist and have a built in gravy.

What did we think?

Delicious!! We thought it was very good. I added a chicken gravy, because we like gravy but this dish was quite good.  Even hubby and the little munchkin ate it up without complaint.
