Bacon Wrapped Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts Stuffed With Goat Cheese & Spinach

Wow, that is a long title!

You guys have to try this recipe! Or some sort of variation of it. It was absolutely delicious and pretty easy to throw together on a random weeknight. Does anyone else get into a slump when it comes to cooking/meal planning? For a few weeks I’ll be on a roll and prepare yummy meals left and right, but then I go through weeks where nothing sounds good to me and I don’t feel like cooking.

I went through one of those slumps recently, but was suddenly inspired when I spotted the thin sliced chicken breasts on sale at Kroger.

I threw a bunch of random items in my cart that sounded good and decided to experiment in the kitchen that night with a stuffed chicken breast dish.

Here is what you’ll need:

-1 package thin sliced chicken breasts
-2 ounces of a log of goat cheese (I bought the sundried tomato flavor)
-1/4 to 1/2 cup frozen spinach
-all natural bacon (I used Applegate Farms turkey bacon)
-various spices (I used the Kroger brand of Mrs. Dash’s original seasoning)
-olive oil

Turn on your skillet to medium heat and drizzle with olive oil. Meanwhile, drop 2 ounces (or more) of goat cheese into a small bowl. Add the frozen spinach and spices, then mix everything together (this may take a little bit of elbow grease).

Sprinkle your favorite spices onto each chicken breast in the package and then spread the goat cheese mixture on them until you run out.

Roll up the chicken breasts long ways and then wrap each one with a piece of bacon.

Place each roll onto the skillet and cook until they are finished.
