Chicken breasts stuffed with an intensely savory mixture of Gorgonzola cheese, minced green onions, and garlic are wrapped in applewood-smoked bacon and baked. It's a tasty little supper.

Instructions Checklist

  • Cut a slit into the thick side of each chicken breast, about 3 inches long and 1 1/2 inches deep.

  • Mash Gorgonzola cheese, parsley, green onion, and garlic together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Stuff each chicken breast with 1/4 cup cheese mixture. Wrap 2 slices bacon around each chicken breast, securing bacon to the chicken with wooden toothpicks. Arrange stuffed chicken in the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Made it per the recipe. It was very much to the dry side and the Gorgonzola just didn t add enough juiciness and flavor to make it good. Will not make it again per the recipe n Read More

We just prepared and tried this incredible recipe. I cannot begin to tell you how delicious it was. Served it with Long Grain / white rice and grilled asparagus. My wife and I had two other couples over and served this. As much as I wanted to take credit for it I printed it out and gave it to our friends. This is one worth trying and keeping. Kudos to L.J. We will follow what Jeanette commented on and try this one with different cheeses. Brie Gouda etc. Must be equally as good. So simple. Read More

I love this recipe I created a nearly similar one. I like to precook my bacon about half way done because I don't think it gets crispy enough without overcooking the chicken. I mix in some Parmesan cheese and some Gouda or fontina with the blue cheese for extra melty cheesy goodness. Yum! Read More

I cut the recipe back for only 2 portions and rather than cut a pocket into them I pounded them to about 1/4" thickness. I then cut the breasts in half and stuffed and rolled them. I browned the bacon wrapped chicken breasts prior to baking just to assure a nice crispness. I liked these but I prefer the spinach/cheese combo better. Read More

Entertained 9 people at my house and they all loved this chicken. I used feta cheese and it tasted great. I definitely will make this again Read More

It came out pretty good. I'd not cook it so long the next time which I'm sure is more due to my old oven and not the recipe. A lot of the cheese liquified and was wasted on the bottom of the dish. It was very good though. Read More

Easy peasy! I took the suggestion and cooked the bacon just a bit before wrapping it over the chicken. I also watched to make sure the meat was done but not overdone (about 35 minutes) at 375. I'll definitely do this one again and maybe try Swiss or Asiago cheese. The leftover broth made a wonderful chicken-bacon flavored base for soup the next day. Read More

So good! I had to change out the gorgonzola for gouda as my hubby doesn't like blue cheese. Was tasty! We were talking about adding some sliced apples to it next time to try sweet and salty mix. Read More
