Chicken Walnut Cheese Wrapped in Bacon

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

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!

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

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 sa...

loved it!! so good

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 in...

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.

Very tasty, no need to add salt or seasonings. I did not pound my chicken and it was fine. Also I will use a little less stuffing the next time I make it.
