Chicken Stuffed with Spinach, Feta, and Bacon

Chicken Stuffed with Spinach, Feta, and Bacon

3 chicken breasts
1 bag of fresh spinach
Feta cheese
1/2 lb of bacon, dice all but 3 pieces
1/4 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
Black pepper
Olive oil

  1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Heat your favorite fat (I used olive oil) in a skillet and start cooking the diced bacon along with the diced onion and the spinach. Saute it all together. Don’t worry, the spinach will cook down quickly.
  3. Butterfly the chicken breasts.
  4. In a bowl, mix the sautéed spinach, onions, and bacon with however much feta cheese you prefer.
  5. Spread the minced garlic inside the butterflied chicken.
  6. Put the spinach, onion, bacon, and feta mixture on 1/2 of each butterflied chicken breast and fold the other side back on top of it.
  7. Top each stuffed chicken with the pieces of bacon you set aside earlier.
  8. Place on a pan and bake at 425 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Turn the broiler on for the last 2-3 minutes to brown the top of the chicken and crisp the bacon.

    I thought cheese was not part of the paleo/primal eating.

    This was an amazing dish. So filling and delish! Simple make as well. We marinated the chicken in a herb lemon prior to add a little extra taste.
