Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breast
Take chicken to the next level with this extra delicious Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breast recipe the whole family will love!
Servings 4 servings
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup grated aged cheddar cheese or 4 pc bocconcini
- 1/4 cup bold bbq sauce try this Low Carb BBQ Sauce
- 8 strips bacon
- 4 tsp brown sugar or sukrin gold low carb sweetener
Heat the oven to 375°. If using bocconcini, slice each ball in half.
Slice each breast in half horizontally, not all the way through, just to form a pocket inside each breast for the cheese.
Load the grated cheddar or sliced bocconcini into the chicken.
Lay two pieces of bacon down on a clean surface, side by side.
Coat the chicken breast in 1 tbsp bbq sauce then lay the breast over the bacon and wrap the bacon up so it covers the entire breast. Repeat for each breast then place them inside the baking dish.
Sprinkle each breast with sukrin gold low carb sweetener or brown sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 40-50 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 180°.

- Boneless skinless chicken breasts can be very pricey, so unless they are on sale, I always debone and remove the skin myself. It's easy! Never done it before? Check out this video to learn how to do it.
- A digital meat thermometer is your best friend when it comes to cooking chicken. Under bake it and you could make yourself and/or guests really sick. Over bake it and you've got yourself super dry chicken.
- I highly recommend broiling the chicken at the end to get that bacon night and crispy. The texture will play beautifully with the juicy chicken - just make sure you watch it carefully so that it does not burn.
- The chicken will most likely produce a lot of juice. During the cooking process you can use a turkey baster to baste the bacon for extra delicious flavour. Keep removing the juice as the chicken cooks so that the bottom bacon crisp up.
- Save the juices for something yummy like a gravy or soup base!
