And here comes the recipe:
Garlic-Lemon Stuffed Chicken
For the lemon sauce:
4 tbsp butter
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
For the chicken:
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 2 slices of cheddar (broken in half so you have 4pieces)
- 4 pieces of fully cooked bacon(nice and easy)
- 4 oz cream cheese (cut in 1/2in slices)
- 1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
Preheat over to 350F.
In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add lemon juice and spices, stir and set aside.
Using a sharp knife, butterfly each chicken breast(slice the chicken horizontally through the middle, but make sure you don’t cut all the way through.) Stuff each chicken breast with a slice of cream cheese, a slice of bacon and 1(half a slice) of cheddar. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and parmesan. Dip both sides of chicken in butter sauce and then cover well in bread crumbs. Place the chicken in a pre-greased baking dish and top with mozzarella. Bake for 30mins. Serve with salad or over pasta.
