Creamy cheesy spinach stuffed chicken wrapped in crispy bacon!  Easy to make!

This is an easy chicken dish that tastes great!  Wrapping the chicken in bacon keeps is juicy and moist!

When you roll your chicken, be sure to tuck in the sides as best you can to keep the cheese from leaking out.  I served it with a little bit of homemade honey mustard sauce on the side!

  1. I have made this for years except I don’t use the bacon or the mustard sauce. Just open a can of cream of chicken and it mixes with the chicken juices and melted cheese.
