Chicken Wrapped in Bacon

Have I blogged this before? I don't know. It doesn't matter, because whatever I may have blogged before was crap compared to the chicken wrapped in bacon that I made tonight. It may be the 2 glasses of wine talking, but this was the BEST version of this dish I have ever made. I made it for John the first time he came over to my apartment for dinner. What better way to lure a man into your clutches, er, I mean, let someone know that you think they're great than to make stuff chicken wrapped in BACON? Vegetarians....sorry 'bout it. Here you go-


1 LARGE chicken breast, pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
1 /2 package stuffing that took you 5 hours to make and DEFINITELY not the Wegman's brand Chicken flavored stuffing....(make sure you cool it first)
5 piece of bacon


1) Preheat oven to 350
2) Stuff chicken with stuffing (about 1/2 c.)
3) Wrap bacon pieces around stuffed chicken breast, making sure that entire surface is covered.
4) Place in square baking dish sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.
5) Bake for 30 minutes
6) Broil (or set oven to highest setting) for 5-10 minutes.
7) Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving

We found that this made 1 John sized serving, 1 Emily sized serving, and 1 left-over serving.
