Stuffed Chicken Success

I have been traveling a good bit for work and wanted to try something new. I get bored with plain chicken, so I decided to try this recipe from PaleOMG — which I highly recommend.

Click HERE for the full recipe.

Ingredients
  • 4 chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded flat
  • 6-8 ounces of button mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 4-5 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

I, of course, was drawn into it because of the bacon, which makes everything taste better.

I pounded the chicken with my super fancy apparatus — a hammer. I put cellophane over the chicken before pounding.

I cooked the bacon until it got nice and crunchy and chopped it up.

Then sauteed the mushrooms and garlic in a little bit of the bacon grease.

Added in the spinach and bacon — letting the spinach wilt.

Then put the mixture into the butterflied and pounded chicken and secure with toothpicks. photo 1 copy  Baked in the oven for 20 minutes and sauteed some veggies while it was in the oven. I didn’t have enough squash or asparagus for two so I just made two separate veggies.

The final product. 🙂 photo 2 copy photo 3 copy

And we added a little two buck chuck from Trader Joes! 🙂  This recipe was SO easy and it only took about 40 minutes to make everything happen.

    I’m seeing awesome carmalized squash here, terrifically pounded chicken and so much more….and then I remember when. The day she was born.
