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.

  • 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

My husband said to definitely make this again. We are on a low carb diet so this was exactly what we needed. I already had marinaded chicken breasts in Italian dressing so I used those. Perfect. Read More

Made it as is and it was delicious! Even my husband who always complains about "too much chicken" loved it. Hooray for cheese and nuts! This will be in the regular rotation. 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
