Mark and I have been in a rut with dinner lately. We almost always have chicken for dinner so as you can guess... chicken eventually gets boring. We haven't grocery shopped much lately so I scrounged around our fridge, threw some ingredients together and ended up with an awesome dinner. I thought I'd share it with you all.
Ingredients (makes 2 servings)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 slices of Smoked Gouda
3-4 slices of bacon
herb mixture (oregano, thyme, rosemary, marjoram)
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes
First cut the chicken breasts and pound them out. I don't have a meat tenderizer so I used a rolling pin and just hit the meat with it until it was the thickness I wanted.
Cut up the bacon into small pieces and fry it up. Set aside.
Cut or tear the slices of cheese in half and place half a slice on each side of the chicken breasts. Top the cheese with some of the bacon pieces. I divided my bacon into thirds, used one third to stuff each chicken breast and saved the rest to top them.
Fold over the chicken breasts and place in a lightly oiled baking dish. Top the chicken with an herb mixture of your liking. I ground up rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Marjoram and kosher salt together for our chicken, but you could use whatever spices you like. Add a little bit of minced garlic and the remaining bacon over the herb mixture. Place in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
I paired our chicken with lemon garlic asparagus and cooked carrots. It was really delicious.
