Ingredients for Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken with Potatoes

  • russet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • chicken breasts

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken

Making this dish is not hard, but it does take just a little bit of extra time. It is So. Dang. Good.

Prepare the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into thin wedges, placed them on a sheet pan (these are my very favorite) and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper set that aside and move over to your stuffed chicken.

Make the cheese mixture. Add the cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, cream, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to a small bowl (I love this bowl set that comes in 9 different sizes!). Stir that up until it’s well combined. set that aside. 

Prepare the chicken. Cut a slit lengthwise in each chicken breast a little over halfway through. Do not cut all the way through the chicken breast to the other side. You want one side to be intact. Creating a little pocket to stuff the cheese inside.

Stuff the chicken. Spoon the cheese mixture in the chicken breasts as evenly as possible.

Wrap the chicken. Depending on how long the bacon is wrap 1 to 2 slices of bacon around each of the chicken breasts. make sure you do this tight enough so the bacon holds the chicken together. Place the wrapped chicken on the sheet pan with the potatoes, tucking the ends of the bacon under the chicken, to keep it from unraveling.

Bake. Bake everything for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Check the internal temperature of the chicken periodically with a meat thermometer. It should reach 165°F. Halfway through baking, flip the potatoes. 

Once the chicken has reached temperature, broil everything for just a couple minutes at the very end to crisp up the bacon and the potatoes. 

Devour. Serve and enjoy!
