A mouthful both in name and flavor-packed taste, the Baja Chipotle and Sun Dried Tomato Bacon Wrapped Chicken I made tonight was absolutely killer. Here’s a meal fit for a king but simple enough even for the court jester to pull off with ease.
Start with two or three medium sized chicken breasts. Marinade them in a tangy chipotle marinade. Slice the breasts open sideways, kind of like you’re filleting a fish. Do the same thing with an equal number of string cheeses and slide the cheese halves into the chicken pocket you’ve created.
Get yourself some quality bacon. I recommend Rocco’s Sun-Dried Tomato bacon to add a little zest to your meal. Wrap the stuffed chicken breasts with the bacon and place in a baking dish.
Bake the bacon-wrapped chicken in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. While the chicken is baking, make your side dishes. You’ll probably have a couple extra slices of bacon after wrapping the chicken, so I suggest making some sauteed carrots with fresh garlic, pepper, and tasty bacon. Combine all those elements along with a couple tablespoons of butter and a some olive oil and let all that saute for 15 minutes or so.
I also warmed up a few sweet potatoes to balance out the meal. Overall this was an amazingly delicious and extremely simple meal to make. It will be sure to impress bacon lovers and casual porcines as well.
