Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Chop spinach and place in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Stir until wilted. Add cream cheese and stir until melted and creamy. Cool completely.

  3. Butterfly chicken breast (so you can open it like a book) and pound to 1/2" thickness.

  4. Divide the spinach mixture over each breast and top with one slice of swiss cheese. Close chicken around the spinach and cheese. Wrap each breast with 2 slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks. Season with cajun or chicken seasoning if desired.

  5. Bake on a pan for 35-40 minutes. 

Recipe Notes

If you don't have flavored cream cheese, add a pinch of garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.
