I’ve been on a stuffing fix. Not the “it’s Thanksgiving, pass the stuffing” kind of thing, more like, “what amazing food can I stuff into this meat?” Tonight’s dinner was inspired by my five slices of uncooked bacon sitting in the fridge, which was a leftover from my breakfast-for-dinner fiasco of yesterday. With just four ingredients, this meal is up there in my top ten it-tastes-like-I-spent-hours-but-I-just-spend-10-minutes meals.
Here’s how I did it:
Take four chicken breasts, slit the side for an opening and make a pouch inside the chicken.
Stuff with sliced fresh spinach and cream cheese (I used reduced calorie herb and garlic — yum!)
wrap with bacon
I meant to serve this meal with baked potatoes and beats as I was using the oven anyway. However, beats take a heck of a long time to cook. So the beats went half cooked back into the fridge (when am I going to get to that?) and the spinach got another role in the dinner play as the vegetable accompaniment.
Have you stuffed something lately (other than your mouth 🙂 ? Do tell!
