  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  2. Start by preparing the stuffing for your bacon wrapped stuffed chicken. Saute minced garlic in a skillet with a splash of olive oil over medium heat until fragrant.

  3. Add diced mushrooms and cook until tender for about 5 minutes.

  4. Add in fresh spinach leaves into the skillet and watch them wilt down into approximately half their original volume.

  5. After wilting spinach, transfer the ingredients from the skillet into a mixing bowl with softened cream cheese, crumbled bits of blue cheese, salt, and black pepper to taste, then mix thoroughly.

  6. Take each of your four boneless skinless chicken breasts and make a lengthwise cut down its thickest part to create an opening that is approximately two-thirds of the way through.

  7. Stuff each breast with your spinach, mushroom and cheese mixture.

  8. Wrap every chicken breast with two slices of bacon, ensuring that they overlap each other slightly for better coverage of your stuffed chicken.

Substitutions and Variations

As much as I love the classic version of this bacon wrapped stuffed chicken recipe, there are several ways to mix it up and get creative with it. Whether you are looking for a different flavor profile or have specific dietary requirements, there are plenty of substitutions and variations that can be made.

For those who cannot consume dairy, you can easily replace the cream cheese and blue cheese with a dairy-free alternative such as cashew cream cheese or almond-based cheese. Additionally, if you have a sensitivity to gluten, you can replace the breadcrumbs in the stuffing mixture with gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour.

If you want to add more vegetables into the stuffing mixture, you can try adding diced bell peppers or shredded carrots for extra color and vitamins. You can also swap out the spinach for kale or arugula for a different flavor profile.

Alternatively, for those who prefer crispy bacon on top rather than wrapped around the chicken breasts, try crisping up some bacon in a skillet and crumbling it on top of the chicken before baking.

For those who do not eat pork, turkey bacon or even prosciutto can be used instead of regular bacon. If you want to reduce the fat content in this recipe, try using turkey breast instead of chicken breast or use chicken tenders instead of full-sized chicken breasts.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to substitutions and variations for this delicious and versatile recipe. Don’t be afraid to experiment and make it your own!

Serving and Pairing

When it comes to serving and pairing this bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken, the possibilities are endless. You can either serve it as a main dish or slice it into smaller pieces as an appetizer.

For a beautifully balanced meal, I suggest serving the chicken with some vibrant roasted vegetables like carrots, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes. The sweetness of the roasted veggies will complement the savory flavor of the bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken perfectly.

If you’re feeling fancy, you can even pair this dish with a crisp and refreshing salad topped with some balsamic vinaigrette. The acidity of the dressing will contrast nicely with the richness of the cheese-stuffed chicken.

For those who prefer their meals on the heartier side, mashed potatoes, quinoa or rice make great accompaniments to this dish. The creamy texture of these sides will create an excellent harmony with the juicy chicken and savory bacon.

And lastly, don’t forget to pair this meal with a glass of your favorite wine or beverage for maximum enjoyment. A full-bodied red wine like Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon would complement this hearty chicken dish perfectly. But if you prefer something softer, an earthy Pinot Noir would also make for an excellent choice.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

I know as a busy nutritionist, you need recipes that can fit into your tight schedule. That’s why I included tips on make-ahead, storing, and reheating this bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken dish. You can make it ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for a quick and easy meal later on.

If you’re planning to make this recipe ahead of time, let the chicken cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. If you want to keep it longer for meal-prep purposes, store it in the freezer for up to 2 months.

To reheat it, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and place the wrapped chicken in an oven-safe dish. Make sure to add extra cooking time since it will be coming from the fridge or freezer. Reheat until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). To prevent the chicken from drying out, cover it with aluminum foil while reheating.

Another great option is to reheat this dish on a stovetop using a skillet pan or griddle. Heat up some EVOO in your pan or griddle over medium heat before placing your bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken onto it. Cook each side for at least 5-6 minutes until they crisp up and warm up enough.

With these tips, you can prepare your delicious gluten-free bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken ahead of time and still enjoy the same delicious taste like freshly cooked ones. Whether you’re meal-prepping or simply love having leftovers, this recipe made it easier for you to have real good foods anytime you crave them.

Tips for Perfect Results

Ensuring that your bacon wrapped stuffed chicken comes out perfectly can be quite a task. However, with the right tips and techniques, you can have the result you want every time.

One thing to keep in mind is the bacon. For best results, use high-quality bacon that cooks evenly and crisps up nicely. Thinly sliced bacon works better than thick slices because it conform to the shape of the chicken when cooked.

When wrapping the chicken with the bacon, try to overlap each strip slightly to prevent any openings where the stuffing could leak out.

If you want your chicken to be juicy and not overly dry, avoid overcooking it. Use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature reaches 165°F, then remove it from the oven immediately.

To prevent sticking or burning, lightly grease the baking dish before placing the chicken. You can use extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil for this purpose.

Additionally, seasoning your chicken correctly is key to enhancing its flavors. Mix garlic powder and black pepper in with your cream cheese stuffing or sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of your chicken before baking.

Lastly, allow your stuffed chicken to rest for at least five minutes before slicing it. This will help for it retain its juices and make it easier to cut without losing its filling.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create a delicious bacon wrapped stuffed chicken that’s sure to impress both yourself and everyone else around you!
