The tasty filling is made from only 4 ingredients: spinach, mayonnaise, feta cheese, and garlic. It is a bit salty and creamy. The bacon wrapped around the chicken adds a salty, crispy finish but also helps keep the filling in place.

The stuffed chicken breasts are first briefly cooked in a skillet to crisp the bacon and then finish cooking in the oven.

How To Make Bacon Wrapped Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken:

  1. Go ahead and preheat the oven to 350 degrees so that it is ready.
  2. Stir together the filling ingredients in a small bowl. If you want to make this dish spicy, add 1/2 a teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the filling.
  3. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket in each chicken breast. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  4. Fill each pocket with filling and wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each chicken breast, securing with a toothpick.
  5. Heat a little olive oil in an ovenproof skillet. Cook the chicken for about 3 minutes per side to start the process of getting the bacon crispy.
  6. Transfer to the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. The juices should run clear and the chicken should no longer be pink. Remove the toothpicks before serving.

This recipe is easily customizable. Add a little shredded Parmesan cheese to the filling for extra flavor or instead of the feta. A few chopped artichoke hearts can also be added. Softened cream cheese can be used instead of mayonnaise.

I love stuffing chicken breasts. White chicken meat can sometimes be a little dry, bland, and boring. Stuffing the chicken is such an easy way to add flavor.
