Simple Bacon and Spinach Stuffed Chicken
I hate chicken. I really do. The only time I like chicken is when it’s shredded and mixed with lots of juices. And in an arepa. Truth. I even made these stuffed chicken breasts, and even though they tasted great and the chicken was cooked perfectly, I still didn’t want to eat it. Because chicken sucks and is boring. Don’t fight me on this one, please. I will not budge. I’m really selling you on this recipe, huh?
I’ve been looking into the blood type diet a bit. Mostly just what kinds of meats are better choices for my blood type. And well, white meats and fish are suppose to be better for my blood type. Red meats, pork, and anything that has delicious flavor to it, is a no no. Which is something I’m not a huge fan of. I’m just not into the fact that I may have to cut off all happiness in my diet. Just ain’t gonna work for me. It just ain’t.
I hate something else. Phone issues. They are just THE WORST. I need an iphone. I got with the 21st century and got a Mac, now I need to one up myself and get an iphone. This phone of mine has broken 3 times. Meaning I’ve had 3 different phones, same style, but brand new. To be fair, I drunkenly dropped it in the toilet one of the times, but the other two were not my fault. I swear, phones are made to break within months, then you have to buy a new one, keeping the phone industry booming. Conspiracy? Maybe, but I’m sticking with that belief.
Anywho, I don’t have a phone right now. I’m communicating via Facebook and Gmail at this time, which sucks because I hate both of those things. And writing back to anyone. A land line would be quite nice right now. Not that it would be helpful since I have only 3 numbers in this world memorized, one being my own. But the biggest issue with having phone problems is actually going to the phone store to get the problem fixed. This is how my phone scenario played out yesterday:
Since it wouldn’t turn on when I woke up, as I drove to the phone store, I kept looking down to see if it was charging in my car charger. This caused me to get honked at, at least three times in 15 minutes. Three times. I don’t think I’ve been honked at three times in my life. That was a lie. Anywho, since I was freaking out, I got to the phone store 20 minutes early. And since my phone wasn’t working, I didn’t exactly have anything to do. So I read tax paperwork. That was a blast. After the words began to become unreadable blurbs, I moved onto lotioning my cuticles. This isn’t something I EVER do. I could give a f*ck about my nails, especially my nail beds. I don’t paint them, I don’t go to the nail salon. I cut them so they don’t catch on my clothes. They serve the purpose of picking my nose, and that’s it. So while I lotioned my hands, I gave people dirty looks as they pulled up. You know everyone who pulls up before a store opens is trying to get in there first, because if you don’t, it’s most likely going to be a 15 minute wait automatically. Which makes absolutely no sense. But whatever. So as soon as the doors opened, I literally sprinted to the door. I’m not joking. And met with a woman for 15 minutes who told me they would overnight me a phone.
Ok so cool, that’s rad and all that I’ll have a phone by tomorrow, but what do I do right now? What do I do tomorrow morning when I have to wake up at 5am? Use a real alarm? I don’t have one of those. Do they even sell those anymore? Because if they do, I want one that will play Beyonce when I wake up so I’m instantly in a better mood.
On a high note, I think I have pink eye. Cooooooooool. Getting a cold has proved to be one hell of a pain in the ass. And don’t tell me someone farted on my pillow. You’re not original.Print
Simple Bacon and Spinach Stuffed Chicken
- 4 chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded flat
- 6–8 ounces of button mushrooms, roughly chopped
- 5 strips of bacon
- 4–5 cups fresh spinach
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Butterfly your chicken. I’m not totally sure how to butterfly a chicken breast but I cut mine in half, then placed plastic wrap on top of the chicken and pounded it until it was flat. Do that, it works.
- Then place a large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the five strips of bacon and cook on both sides until crispy, then place bacon on a paper towel to soak up the excess fat. When cooled, dice up the bacon.
- Pour out the excess fat from the bacon, leaving behind about 3 tablespoons in the pan.
- While the pan is still over medium-high, toss in the garlic cloves then add diced mushrooms.
- Sprinkle in a bit of salt and pepper on the mushrooms.
- Once mushrooms have begun to soften, add the spinach and a bit more salt and pepper.
- Cover and let steam until spinach has begun to wilt. When the spinach has wilted, remove the pan from heat and add in diced bacon. Mix with mushrooms and spinach until well combined.
- Place mixture into the middle of your butterflied chicken, fold chicken over to make a little “pocket” and use a two toothpicks to keep it closed while cooking.
- Place stuffed chicken breasts on a parchment lined baking sheet and put in oven to bake for 18-20 minutes or until there is no longer pink in the chicken. The time will range depending on how thin you pound the chicken. It may take a bit longer.
- Love moist chicken. Don’t overcook it, don’t you do it!
- Don’t eat the toothpick. Duh.

Are we having a grumpy day? 🙂
Recipe looks lovely, will definitely be trying that very soon!
I hope your day gets better
Leanne, from Surrey, UK x
Love the blog and your recipes. Definitely gonna try out the brussel sprouts with turnips.
That said, please give this website a look:
I wouldn’t give the blood type diet too much credit. Eat what you enjoy and what works from your own experience.
Hi, I’ve only recently taken up Whole30 (seriously, this is day 3) but I’ve already used your blog for a few recipes 😀 Time to return the favour: Try chicken straight up wrapped in bacon, that’s always good. You do a lot of stuff with maple syrup, maple bacon chicken could be lush! Or I like to bake mine wrapped in foil with lemon juice and garlic, takes bit longer but then it won’t taste quite so much like chicken. And I did honey/mustard chicken before Whole30 but I’m not sure if that’s paleo or not. Or try a chicken stir-fry, it’ll taste like veg but you’re still getting the meat.
Sorry if you know all this already, just wanted to help as you’ve already helped with my Whole30 😀
I just pinned this, it looks SO good. I always experiment with stuffing chicken, but I haven’t tried this combo….YET 🙂
I looked at a chart for my blood type and it straight up was like “NO BACON, HAM, PORK” and I pretty much scoffed/choked/cried. no bacon? no magical piggy goodness to make anything f-ing DELICIOUS? I just… can’t accept it…! :'<
I made this tonight with turkey bacon, and the addition of sun dried tomatoes and a little cheddar cheese. Pretty tasty! 🙂
Hi JB! I remember seeing some remedies for pink eye on Pinterest. I can’t find the one I was saw before, and now really gross pics. have come up. But, you can try putting raw potato slices on your eye;) http://www.natural-homeremedies.org/blog/natural-cures-for-pink-eye/ <3
The dreaded pink eye 🙁 I’m an eye doc, here is what you should know….
1. gross green puss globs and eyelids that are matted shut in the morning = bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye) and needs an antibiotic drop for treatment
2. clear, watery thick discharge that starts and one eye and usually goes to the other = viral conjunctivits – just has to run its course, usually takes 10 days to clear and totally sucks
3. red, ITCHY, watery eye = allergic conjunctivitis – you can try an over the counter drop like Zaditor to help along with cold compresses
Then there are bunch of gross pink eyes associated with STD’s, but I’ll assume thats not what we’re dealing with here!!!
Good luck, woman! (and wash your pillowcase!)
in order for me to even eat chicken, it has to have the skin on it. i love the fatty meats, too. the blood type diet told me i’d be a great vegetarian/vegan even though i turned to paleo because my health had diminished as a vegan! i don’t believe that diet at all. how would cavemen have checked their blood type?? run to the nearest Quest laboratory?? please.
Am I the only one that thinks this looks like a vagina?? Anyway, anything stuffed with bacon and veggies is good in my book, no pun intended. Looking forward to trying it…. Sorry for the gross comment.
i’m not sure what vaginas you are looking at….
I completely understand your chicken prejudice; we eat far less chicken than we do beef and pork, and rarely eat skinless chicken breasts unless I’m battering and frying it. This, however, looks like it might be quite tasty.
Wonder if it could be battered and fried…
This looks so fun…I am actually totally ok eating boring chicken but am trying to find ways to enjoy it a little more, and this looks perfect!
eff the blood type diet…eat what you crave! Your recipes are fab and since I crave bacon…always….I will be adding this to my list of dinner’s this week. Thanks for coming up with amazing recipes that my entire family enjoys 🙂
Ugh! Pink eye 🙁
Chicken is also the most blah of blah to me–unless it’s covered in BBQ sauce. Yet, somehow red meat is what I eat the least.
PS-day 2 on Paleo and you are pushing me through it!!
This looks great! I’ve got some chicken defrosting in the fridge right now. I guess I know how I’ll be cooking it tonight!
I pretty much get pink eye any time I breathe the same air as someone else who has it. It’s a good excuse to stay in and get caught up on laundry and sleep, though 🙂
And chicken breasts can suck sometimes. Do thighs and legs! And invite some curry to that party.
I’m glad there is another like-minded (taste-budded) soul who will also admit (out loud/in writing/however else you express your feelings) they don’t like chicken. I swear the amount of people who think I’m nuts when I say I don’t prefer chicken is nuts in itself. I’m right there with ya though sista, I honestly have to force it down my throat… unless it’s fried… as in KFC fried (did I just admit I eat KFC?) (just to clarify, I really only like their fried goodness part not the actual chicken…so yes I did just admit it)… other than that I’ll stick to beef.
I’m super stoked somebody else thinks that looks like lady parts. And no, I don’t think i’ve ever even seen a real one, so yes, that’s what I imagine they look like, except my own. In my mind, it’s perfect like a porn stars.
I’m sad you don’t like chicken. It’s sooooo easy, which is how I like my meats (and men). I wouldn’t be sad to see more white meat recipes 😉
Chicken arepas are amazing. Brought back some fond memories of Venezuela!
I may try this recipe for valentines day, although like you I really don’t care much for chicken. Bacon however… 🙂
I agree with you 100% on the chicken thing. We still eat thighs, but breasts? The other day, I made a perfectly nice saute with chicken breasts, and Dave took a bite, looked at me, and said, “I think I am lifetime tired of chicken breasts.”
Yeah. Over them.
Please allow me to second the naysaying on the blood type diet. The entire purpose of having a separate digestive tract (besides breaking up food into its component molecules) is to isolate the things you eat from your immune system – i.e., your blood. Your food is not coming into direct contact with your bloodstream unless something is very wrong with your gut, so don’t bother! A simple elimination diet is a much more reliable way to find out if certain proteins are problematic for you (usually because they irritate the lining of your gut).
i made a recipe similar to this last week. Only difference was I added a piece of Bacon on top of each chicken breast. It was wonderful and added much needed flavor to the chicken!
Sorry to hear about the potential pink eye and phone issues, but this recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to give it a try (let’s be honest, if the recipe includes bacon, I’m pretty much in).
PS: You would be in a much better mood today if you’d been able to join the Paleo Potluck fun last night in San Diego! 🙂
Juli, if you lived in Virginia I would send you a dozen of these suckers dipped in dark chocolate to cheer you up!
Long time reader first time poster (corny). Your recipes are awesome, I have tried several at home. With that being said, I can see why you don’t like chicken! Chicken needs love all up on the outsides! Salt, pepper, herbs, garlic…a grind or shake of something! The inside of your chicken looks amazing and the outside looks so sad and lonely…maybe you should make the outside of your chicken a match.com profile so it can find a mate.
Hi Juli! Love your site, thank you for all your yumminess. If you are looking for something cheap and natural for the pink eye steep a tea bag, chamomile or, well really anything works as long as its a tea. Take into account a spiced or chai would be a no bueno. So, steep tea bag and then hold onto the eye (Closed of course). Do this as much as possible. There is something in tea that naturally pulls out the funk. Also, Colloidal Silver works really well. The big WF carries it as well as natural grocers. Hope you get better & thank you again for all your dedication to helping peeps out when it comes to this Paleo stuff 😉
I love your posts. You type they way I think. This looks pretty yummy. I am stuck in a rut and hope that I can get out of it.
Soooo sorry about the pink eye! That is terrible…but this too shall pass! In the mean time, enjoy that delicious chicken 🙂
I love your blog! I am fairly new to Paleo, and besides the fantastic recipes ( this is one I will try this week) you are so funny! I usually skim through all the writings on a blog and get to the recipe or the DIY project, but yours I actually read! While I do hope you feel better soon and you get your phone as promised, please keep telling us the wonderful stories! Thank you 🙂
I had chicken breast to use up the other night and usually go to your website to find something to make and thought to myself……I never see chicken recipe’s from her and now I know why…..I made this last night so yummy…..sorry you have to eat chicken and green olives and you hate them….just to please all of us readers:) You Rock.
Goldenseal works wonders for pink eye 😉
Use it in a warm compress pressed against the eye or drop a drop or two directly in, preferably not a tincture with alcohol.
I helped a woman using golden seal who had chronic issues with pink eye and she said it was the only thing that had ever cleared up her pink eye.
What a quick and easy way to spice up chicken! I hate buying it lately because I get so bored with it!
I’ve been obsessed with your sweet potato brownies. I love the last step… Now eat those B$tches!!! But what is your fav Beyonce song right now? And what else have you been listening too? And last please post another all day of what you ate and did. Ok thanks!
YUM! I’ve made a similar stuffed mediterranean chicken breast- http://lifewithlampnsofa.com/2011/03/20/couscous-stuffed-chicken1/
Hey, Juli. I have been researching this whole Paleo thing for a couple of weeks now, gonna do it, just want to be super prepared so I don’t sneak that chocolate bar when no one is looking! Picked up the Paleo Magazine tonight and saw your blog topped the charts in the “Food Centered Blog” category. Kudos! Since it was voted 1st, I thought it had to be good. And good is right! Thanks for the blog (and the humor!)…my kind of humor! Can’t wait to get started with Paleo and your recipes will surely keep my kids excited, too. Thanks!
The recipe is a win for me for one reason : bacon ! And I agree there is a conspiracy with this breaking phones all the time thing !Take care Juli !
Made these last night (minus the bacon) with your roasted brussel sprouts….DELICIOUS! Thanks for the recipe and making the transition to Paleo so delicious!
Juli, I made this recipe for my fella last night and subbed sun dried tomatoes for the mushrooms… OUTSTANDING. You’ve done it again. Thanks for the easy, yet fancy looking recipe! 🙂
Loved this recipe…so easy & delish! Thanks Julie! Can’t figure out how too make the stars work, but I fine it a five!
I am the same way about chicken. I can make yummy chicken things but rather have something other than chicken.
I made this last night, I added sun dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts…amazing!!! Thank you!
I agree with you on chicken. boring boring boring. However, I will try this recipe. I will always give something a try that has ingredients that I love and hope.
dude. I never comment on internet things. I mostly find reading them and that entire exercise to be totally arbitrary. but I just wanted to tell you that I think you are hilarious. reading your crazy bullshit totally makes my day. I’m a former crossfitter, 80% paleo, total creep artist lady. this culture is so far removed from most of my art friends that they totally dont get why I love you so much. but I do. I really really do. everytime I make something new at home my boyfriend asks if I got it here and its totally unfair because the answer is most of the time yes but I still want him to think I’m a totally brilliant cook. thank you for being so brilliant.
ps- I love chicken and this does not look like a vagina.
and sorry for saying totally too many times.
Made this last night ad also added some full fat sheep milk feta and a few chopped spring onions. It was tasty and made a nice change to our nightly dinners. Thanks for posting! I poured a little olive oil on the raw chicken before placing in the oven along with some sea salt and dried oregano. I also made too much filling for my chicken breasts and had the left overs with my eggs this morning. Nom.
Otter box! I am a clutzy clutz who drops things all the time. The case recently cracked and needs to be replaced, but the phone is pristine. I bought my iPhone almost a year ago, and without this case it would have been dead three times over.
Recipe looks good, although I am a bit worried about how long the spinach cooks. I am always looking for good chicken recipes. Now I know why I haven’t seen many on here!
It’s my first time at your website, and tonight will be the first time I try a recipe (this one)… even though I don’t really like mushrooms – wish me luck!
Made the bacon, spinach chicken last night. It was delicious! Prep time is quite a bit more than 15 minutes, so just be aware. Pounding the chicken and cooking the bacon ared the most time comsuming. Thank you for the delicious recipe.
First, let me say that I love your site and have found more simple, delicious recipes on paleomg.com than on any other Paleo recipe site. Thank you!
Second, I was very excited to see that you posted this new chicken recipe and want to report that this is now one of my favorite paleomg dishes. I did tweak it a little – I used kitchen twine because I didn’t have toothpicks and that worked very well. Also, I’m from the south and like the outside of my chicken “fried” so before baking, I dunked each of the stuffed pieces into an egg wash and coated with a crust I made in the blender with coconut flour, roasted almonds, salt and pepper. YUM!
I’m looking forward to trying the Artichoke Lemon Pesto Chicken Pasta. 🙂
I am so glad for this reciepe. I loved it! My husband loved it too!!! SO good. I even ate the extra bits out of the pan!!!!
Again, keep up the awesome work.
I second Jessica’s comment. I made this for my husband also, and he thought it was amazing. I paired it with some fresh asparagus. Yum! I was tempted to eat the whole thing by myself (but I refrained). I will even make this for company – it was that good! 🙂
We adore this recipe! I didn’t feel especially aggressive, so instead of pounding it, I cut into it twice. I think the double-decker stuffed chicken worked well. Thank you for being innovative! You rock our dinner table.
I just made this! Awesome! … I prepped everything beforehand and stuffed the chix, went down to the basement to do some sandbag training and yoga, preheated the oven while I stretched, threw the chicken in before my shower and by time I got out still had time to make my “creamed” kale and reheat some mashed cauli! Thanks for the recipe!
Having been one of those people that didn’t have an iPhone for the longest time and now finally have one, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! Not sure how I lived without it!! Highly recommend it!! Have the new iPhone 5, but I know that because that just came out, you can also get great deals on the 4 and 4S. Depending on who your cell carrier is, the 4 and 4S might even be free. Worth looking into. You should totally get one!
Just made this chicken with roasted Brussel sprouts n rutabaga in rosemary and it was fantastic! Just curious how many calories do you think are in this dish? Thanks for sharing!
absolutely no clue. sorry katie
I made these last night and added goat cheese to the mix, delicious and husband loved them also. Next time though I’m going to cook them on my G. Forman grill, it took almost an hour to cook at 375 in the oven.
I made this last night (well kinda, I didin’t stuff I put the stuff on top) and it was amazing! Even the brussel sprouts (I hate them) and they were good. Thanks so much!!!!
OK, so just started to look into this lifestyle for me and my family. I made this and if this Paleo life then sign me up! This chicken was amazing. We live off of what is in season and minimal process foods (I would like to say completely, but there are a few items that have a few ingredients) but this meal made me full. Thank you for all that you do and look forward to seeing what other delicious meals you come up with.
Yes. This was delicious! I’m a glutton and so made enough stuffing for 4 servings, and piled it in to only 2 🙂
Substituted bacon with 1/4 lb of sausage…..and sprinkled a garlic/parsley blend on the outside….holy cow new favorite and staple in this house!
I made the last night and it was delicious! I’m not full blown paleo and threw in a little homemade mozzarella… Totally delicious. Thanks for the great recipe chicken can get pretty boring. I also had to cook it a little longer, but in all fairness I only had a large metal spoon to pound my chicken breast with. Made a yummy crust by dunking it in egg, then coconut flour and chopped almonds, put in the broiler for a couple of minutes and voila! Stuffed, “fried” chicken breast. I made it with the spicy cauliflower because well, I had the ingredients on hand. This goes into my regular real rotation.
Made this tonight, Also sprinkled garlic powder on the chicken breasts before, and let them sit in the fridge for a while. The chicken was slightly undercooked, so it could have used a few more minutes. Everyone enjoyed it! My father-in-law thought that a little sauce, like a marinara, would have helped this dish out a little. Thanks for another winner!
So I’m new to Paleo and thanks to your blog it has not been that difficult, the hardest part has been finding some of the ingredients! I just wanted to let you know that this chicken was AMAZING! I have been eating turkey bacon for a few years now and man have I missed REAL bacon!
I’d just like to say YUM. Made this last night and it was awesome. I might have also made kale with bacon on the side. Too much bacon one might say? YEA RIGHT!!
I’m wondering how you expect me to cook the bacon and not eat it before it makes it into the chicken!? =)
I made this for my seriously picky little girls and a boyfriend who eats fast food like it’s going out of style and they absolutely LOVED it. It’s going in my regular repetoire of recipes!
P.S. I have been following your blog and cooking your recipes for about a year now. keep the yummy goodness coming!!
Made this tonight. It was awesome!!! I added carrots to the sprouts for a pop of color. I’ve never really worked with rutabaga before, but now I can’t see why I shouldn’t! I’ll be stopping by your blog more often! Thanks for dinner.
J- thank you for this recipe. I’ve had it on the menu for a week and finally whipped it up. Amazing. It was just what I needed.
Loved this recipe, tried it just the other day. Super easy!
Pretty darn good!
You are my Paleo dream girl.
Made this recipe.. and I only had chicken tenders, so after flattening it it was like chicken paper stuffed with bacon, spinach glory. Ohhh delicious.
Every recipe I’ve tried (and I’ve tried MANY) have been more than stellar.
Me and my tummy are happy.
I love your blogs and your sense of bad temper humour. A lady after my heart, one who loves to cook angry, healthy, food. I just made this tonight… Maybe it was the chicken because I’m angry now! It looks fantastic, it smells fantastic and I’m sure it’ll taste fantastic. I’m excited to try these on the grill with some natural applewood smoke flavour. Mmmmmm.
This recipe MIGHT have made my fiancé love you more than me… We added a little feta to the mx for his, and he’s thrilled. Another win for Juli 🙂
Made this last night, amazing! Made with baked sweet potato chips, et voila! Perfect Friday night xx
I made this last night and it was amazing! Totally impressed my husband who just told me last week if I try to make us chicken on more time he’s going to lose it!
After I butterflied the chicken I put them into a homemade marinade (olive oil, fresh herbs, garlic and lemon) for about 1.5 hours. They came out so freaking great! I will definitely be doing this again! Thanks for all the awesome paleo recipes!
I recently found a technique for adding a lot of flavor to meat. I paint the meat with plain greek yogurt then add seasonings. It sits in the refrigerator over night and is cooked the next day…meat comes out very moist and flavorful. I’ll try your recipe soon. yesterday was my first day trying paleo.
just struck me, paleo probably does not include greek yogurt!
Made this on monday night, it is amazing (anything with bacon is). However I think I came to the same realization as you…chicken is snooooze worthy, bring on the beef!
Tried this recipe on my second official day of paleo. Thanks a lot for the great website and delicious recipe!
Mine came out extremely tender and moist. The chicken was able to marinate in some of the excess bacon grease/byproduct of the pan. I highly suggest pouring it all in there for juicy, tender chicken at the end!
Tried this recipe out on husband, he was asking for seconds.
Fast, simple, and yummy.
This was awesome. I didn’t use any seasonings yet it was bursting with flavor! Fiancé said it was best meal he’s ever had, and he doesn’t like chicken either! Thanks again!
Made this for dinner. Incredibly good! Thanks!
Made it. Awesomeness!
I made this and added roasted red peppers – so good. My 13 year old son and husband loved it too (and they both hate chicken).
I just have to say, you are hilarious and I’m going to start reading your blog daily. I am on a Whole 29 (missed the first day because sugar was calling and then my friend roped me into the challenge with her because she was doing it alone). Darnit, I still have a half an uneaten chocolate easter bunny in the pantry.
Thank you for the awesome recipe! I made this last night for my family and it was a huge hit! My nine year old who won’t normally touch spinach, much less mushrooms, gobbled it right up. I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes and reading more of your hilarious blogs.
Hey! I made this!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely Delicious!!!!!!!!!!! My dad fell in love with it and he doesn’t even like spinach!!!!!!!!!! Muah!!!!!!!! Thanks for the recipe!!!!!!
This looks SO good! Trying it for dinner tonight 🙂 Thank you for making me laugh!
Amazing chicken!! Made it tonight omitted the Garlic cloves… yum yum yum!
This was wonderful! I also do not like chicken, but I think I found a way I can really enjoy it! Thanks!
This looks absolutely amazing! I just tried to print it though, and there were some technical difficulties with your website. I printed a few of them off already for meals this week, but this one isn’t working. Just thought I’d let you know! 🙂
A family favorite! Thank you! My oldest (9 years old) despises chicken and this is the only recipe he will eat – and he loves it. I tried asking him how he can hate chicken but have this be a favorite and he said, “uh, duh, mom… This rocks!”
I tried this one over the weekend as well, it was my first Paleo meal!! I was excited, and it was good. However, I would have to say that the chicken needs to be seasoned with something on the outside that complements the inside ingredients. I would suggest Lawery’s seasoning salt..or some other seasoning on the meat before hand would be great.
Hahahaha!! Girl, you cracked me up! I love reading your entries because they make me smile. Glad I started reading your blog. Now, I’m marching into the kitchen to make this recipe! Thank you so much. I love reading about your single life mishaps. It reminds me of my single days which were similar in many ways. Love it!!
really great! I always have trouble cooking chicken to be done but not overdone – so frustrating! but I’ll keep trying! Subbed kale for spinach and added toasted pecans to cut the kale flavor a bit. For my husband I added some dried cranberries and a tiny bit of good blue cheese! really good-
Hi! Okay going to make this recipe. What do you think if I spread the chicken with spinach-sun dried tomato pesto then add the goodies inside??!
I never take the time to leave comments on the internet but I just got done eating this and it was AMAZING. I’m pretty strict paleo and always looking for new recipes so this just went to the top of the list. Thanks!
I made this recipe last night and it literally looks exactly like yours so I was super excited to share it at the table. My only issue was that the chicken was super bland. I followed the recipe to a T and the filling was unreal but the chicken, which I did not season at all (just pounded and stuffed) was quite dry tasting. I had to literally schmear Sir Kensington mayo all over it 🙁 What do you recommend?
We make this frequently at our house, it’s one of our very favorites. But, because I am a rebel, and you’re not the boss of me, I made it tonight with PORK CHOPS! Holy smokes….super good.
My son, who won’t eat vegetables, LOVES this recipe. Thanks!
you are adorable! this post cracked me up!
On another note, I love chicken. It doesn’t suck and isn’t boring. Now that we have that out of the way, I would also like to say that I will never judge you for your food tastes, just as I would ask that you never judge me for mine.
I’m just starting out on this paleo thing, but this chicken recipe looks AWESOME and I can’t wait to try it!!
