I found this recipe on another site when I was looking to use up some leftover smoked gouda. It's very flavorful, easy enough for weekenights yet perfect for a dinner party too.

Directions

  1. Combine, cayenne, garlic powder, paprika and pepper.
  2. Flatten chicken breasts to approx 1/4" thickness.
  3. Season both sides of chicken with the cayenne mixture.
  4. Place small piece (s) of cheese on chicken and roll up, pressing firmly.
  5. Wrap each stuffed breast with a bacon slice and then brown over medium heat until bacon just begins to crisp.
  6. Bake in a 350 oven for 20 minutes.

I made several adaptions to this recipe and it was fantastic. I did beat the chicken breast flat and then folded them in half with a piece of foil in the middle. I seasons the inside with the ingredients listed. I baked the breast in a 350 oven for about 15 minutes. Instead of rolling the chicken breast with the bacon, I cut the bacon up and fried until crisp. I then took the bacon pieces out and drained. I threw away all the bacon fat except for one tablespoon which I used to saute 1 large sliced onion in and cooked or carmelized the onion for about 15 minutes with 1 Tbsp brown sugar. When the onions were done, I added back the bacon, and then added about 1 cup of shredded gouda cheese. I removed the breast from the oven and removed the foil. I place about 1/6 of the onion mixture in the middle of the chicken breast and then folded it back over. I then sprinked the remaining onions and cheese over the top and returned to the oven for another 10 minutes. This was a really good supper. Served with fresh brocolli and fresh fruit. It was great.

Excellent, quick recipe for a weeknight thank you. We just split our breasts, rolled the outside in the spice mix, then put our cheese in, closed them over and wrapped each in 2 slices of bacon. We just put them on a tray and put them straight in the oven. They were big and took about 25 minutes to cook. We will make this one again really soon.

I had regular Gouda cheese which I used for this recipe, and it is delicious. I can't wait to try it with the smoked gouda because that has got to be out of this world. Update - not sure why, but I made this again using the smoked Gouda and it needed salt
