Stuffed Chicken Breast
I haven't been cooking anything new lately. Actually I've been pretty much avoiding the kitchen, trying to prepare the simplest meals possible. Today, I decided to try something new, and I must say I found it very tasty.
3 boneless chicken breast halves pounded thin
1 cup spinach (I used canned)
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 slices bacon
salt and pepper
Pound your chicken breasts between two cellophane sheets 'til thin, but not falling apart (as I did). Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Mince your garlic and mix it into the spinach.
Lay the chicken breasts out on a clean surface, and spoon some of the spinach mixture onto each one. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Roll up chicken to enclose the spinach and cheese, then wrap each chicken breast with one (or two) slices of bacon. Secure with toothpicks, and arrange in a baking dish. (I couldn't find the toothpicks, so I used skewers).
Bake uncovered for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, then use the oven's broiler to cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes to brown the bacon.
