Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Spinach, Mushrooms and Roasted Red Peppers

photo: completed recipe, platedHere is a way to have a chicken dish that is nutritionally complete, including plenty of veggies. You might therefore find that just 1 of these stuffed chicken breasts is sufficient as a meal by itself. You can, of course, always add a side dish or salad to suit bigger appetites.

This recipe is from Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, on sale November 10th. Take advantage of our preorder specials!

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approximately 2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 gloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 ounces portabello mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup roasted red peppers
  • 4 cups fresh spinach or 1 box (10 ounces) frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 strips bacon (preferably uncured)

Preheat the oven to 350ºF (177°C).

Lay each chicken breast flat and, with a sharp knife, cut a pocket in each breast by starting at the thickest part and then cutting horizontally, stopping short of cutting all the way through. Set aside.

Add the mushrooms, roasted peppers, spinach, salt, and black pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes, or until the mushrooms have softened and the spinach is wilted. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.

Place the chicken breasts in the skillet and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, or until both sides are browned. Remove from the heat and place on a large plate. Allow to cook for several minutes, then spoon the reserved spinach mixture in to the pocket of each breast and close. Wrap each breast with 2 strips of bacon in a spiral pattern. Place in a baking dish and bake for 25 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked and a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of the chicken registers 165ºF (74°C).
