Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cook bacon in the microwave, or in a large skillet until about halfway done. Set aside.

  • Prepare the stuffing mix according to package directions. Do not bake. Place the bacon on a clean flat surface. Arrange sets of three slices with two going across, and one up and down.

  • Place a piece of chicken on top. Separate the stuffing into 6 portions, and shape each one into a log. Place one in the center of each piece of chicken. Pull chicken around the stuffing to cover, bringing the bacon around with it. Secure with string or toothpicks. Season with pepper and garlic powder. Place the chicken bundles in a roasting pan, and cover loosely with aluminum foil.

  • Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the foil, and cook until bacon is crisp and chicken is no longer pink, about 10 more minutes. Serve as is or with gravy.

I've made this recipe before with several changes. I mix cream of chicken soup in with the stuffing to make it increadbly moist while baking and also I wrap with raw bacon instead of having it already cooked. It helps add flavor and it seems to hold everything together better! It's definatly not a calorie conscience meal but it's wonderful!! Read More

HOLY SALTY!!! This dish was tasty but very salty. I followed the recipe and it just wasn't what I was looking for. It was good if you like chicken and stuffing. It was easy to make and bake but was just off somehow. I haven't made it since and I'm not sure I would again. I was a great concept but not my cup of tea. Perhaps you will enjoy it. Read More

We really liked this recipe. It will be on our regular dinner rotation for sure. I pounded the chicken and seasoned it with Emeril's Essence. Once filled with stuffing and wrapped with bacon (which I did not pre-cook) I placed the chicken bundles in the slow cooker and cooked them on high for 2.5 hours while I took my son to football practice. When we got home they were cooked perfectly! I put them under the broiler for 10 minutes to crisp the bacon. The chicken was juicy and delicious. I really like this recipe. Read More

This was just ok for us. The chicken didn't have as much flavor as I would have liked. I also was afraid of it drying out so I added a little chicken stock in the pan while baking. It helped keep it moist but I think I would like to tinker with the spices. Thanks for the post. Read More

We enjoyed this dish last night for dinner! I did check the internal temp to make sure everything was cooked thru! Remember anything stuffed needs an internal temp of 165. I thought the recipe was easy to assemble and tasted great. Next time I don't think I'll use any garlic powder. I like garlic but I just felt like it wasen't needed. Read More

What an easy recipe for a work night! My family really liked this and they were all impressed! I would suggest cooking the bacon in the microwave for only about 2 mins. so it doesn't get too crispy which will make it easier to work with. It cooks up well in the oven. Good taste. Thanks! Read More

Pretty good... of course I used a couple of others ideas and used raw bacon to wrap used cream of chicken soup in the stuffing and used the slow cooker then crisped them up in the oven. Like I said pretty good but probably will not be a regular on my menu. Read More
