Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breasts Wrapped in Bacon

Ingredients

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 thick slices of applewood smoked bacon
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8×8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut a slit into the thick side of each chicken breast about 2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches deep.
  3. Mash together the Gorgonzola cheese, parsley, shallot, and garlic in a small bowl; season with salt and black pepper. Divide the filling in half, and stuff each chicken breast with cheese filling. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each breast, and secure with wooden toothpicks. Place the chicken breasts into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is browned and the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a breast should read about 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
