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!
- 10 oz fresh spinach leaves
- 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese (or your favorite, swiss works well too!)
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- garlic powder
- black pepper
- 4 skinless , boneless chicken breast halves, pounded to 1/2 inch thick
- 8 slices bacon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place spinach in a large bowl and microwave 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Let cool and toss with cheese & sour cream.
Lay each chicken breasts flat and sprinkle lightly with pepper and garlic powder. Divide the spinach mixture over each and roll ensuring the cheese is tucked inside. Wrap each breast with 2 slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks.
Bake on a pan for 35 minutes. Turn the oven up to 500 degrees and bake for an additional 8 minutes or until bacon is crisp and internal temperature is 175 degrees.
