Looking for a delicious and easy-to-make dinner idea? Try our Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Smoky Crispy Bacon!
This recipe is perfect for a quick and tasty weeknight meal. The juicy chicken breast is stuffed with broccoli and gooey melted cheese, then wrapped in smoky crispy bacon for an extra flavor kick.
To make this recipe, you will need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup steamed broccoli florets
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 slices of bacon
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Cut a pocket into each chicken breast by slicing horizontally through the thickest part of the breast, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.
In a medium bowl, mix together the chopped broccoli, shredded cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, and garlic powder.
Stuff each chicken breast with the broccoli and cheese mixture, being careful not to overfill.
Wrap two slices of bacon around each stuffed chicken breast, tucking the ends of the bacon underneath to secure.
Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the bacon-wrapped chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until the bacon is crispy and golden brown.
Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
