Chicken Stuffed With Bacon and Cheese

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

This recipe originally called for feta cheese, which we don't care for. I like it with sharp cheddar, but you can use whatever you like!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut a slit (as if to butterfly but do not cut all the way through the ends so it makes a pocket) in each chicken breast.
  2. Stuff with cheese and crumbled bacon (the more the better, I think).
  3. Use a toothpick to secure the pocket closed.
  4. Brown stuffed chicken in olive oil in a fry pan until golden brown, then add diced tomatoes and cover, cooking until chicken is thoroughly done.
  5. Before serving, remove toothpicks.

Everyone LOVED this except I didn't add the tomatoes or cook it in olive oil ( I used the bacon grease) for my PICKY boyfriend and it was still GREAT!! Thank you so much!!!

After chicken was cooked I set it aside on a plate and added a can of cream of chicken to the oil and tomatoes as well as some leftover charro/ black beans and some cayenne powder and heated through on low. Poured over the chicken and the man of the house said he could eat that every week!
