Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Make a pocket in each of the chicken breasts by slicing down one side, making sure to not slice all the way through. Stuff each pocket with mozzarella cheese and a 1/4 the minced garlic. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each stuffed breast and secure in place with toothpicks. The pocket opening should be completely covered.

  • Combine onion and remaining garlic in a shallow baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Place stuffed chicken breasts on top and sprinkle with rosemary.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Serve with fresh vegetables and new potatoes.
