Devilishly good and (almost) paleo-approved! Use the leftover drippings to fry some side-dish veggies, or just drizzle on top of the completed chicken. Go ahead and modify the cheese; any stinky cheese will do. Can also substitute candied walnuts or pecans for standard walnuts for a unique sweet-and-savory flavor.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Pound chicken slices until they are even in thickness and about 1/4-inch thick. Spread blue cheese and walnuts on top of each chicken piece. Roll chicken breasts over filling.

  • Place 2 bacon slices side by side on a work surface. Place each chicken roll at one end of bacon slices and roll bacon around chicken; secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining chicken rolls and bacon.

  • Heat a skillet to medium-high heat and cook bacon-wrapped chicken rolls in the hot skillet until the bacon is browned and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken rolls to preheated oven; bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 25 to 35 minutes.

This was delicious. I noticed this didnt have any seasonings and since I am a salt fiend I brined the chicken first. Used turkey bacon and a lower cal/fat blue cheese.. Scrumptious! Read More

Delicious and easy to fix. I chopped the walnuts and (because I didn't have blue cheese) substituted grated Watonga Onion Cheddar cheese. Read More

This was delicious - as others have said! I added a caramelized onion to the mix Yum! I didn't add any seasoning as I didn't really think it would need it since the cheese and the bacon are salty. I did this wrong though, instead of spreading the filling I just put put the filling in the middle of the breast. Next time I'll do it right so I get the pinwheel effect!! Read More

It's a keeper!! After I pounded the chicken out I salt and peppered them. Then I spread a little blue cheese dressing followed by a few more blue cheese crumbles. Then I added crushed pecans instead of walnuts. Yum!! Read More
