Cheese Stuffed Chicken with BACON the awesome Ann Marie over at White House, Black Shutters always says "makes everything taste better!!"'s true!

ok anyway, I saw a recipe on Pinterest aka the amazingly, fantastical website we all know and love :-)

BUT now i can't find it because for some reason I didn't pin it :-/ but here is the recipe!!

chicken breast
string cheese

super easy

Preheat your oven to 500 F...yes 500

I sliced my chicken in half lengthwise so they were thinner pieces or you could pound them because you are going to be wrapping them around a piece of string these

Cut your string in half...

Place your cheese in your chicken and then roll your chicken

Take a slice (I used 2 haha) of bacon and wrap around your chicken

Secure with your toothpicks

I used a 9 x 13 dish sprayed with cooking spray...THIS WILL SPLATTER but my dish wiped clean...after a soak haha

Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes

um this was amazical!!!!

The Pinterest recipe didn't have bacon...we added that haha

Super easy...quick...and great leftovers! Plus since you slice the chicken breast in have you can technically get 2 chicken wraps from one breast or a mini one and a bigger one haha

Here's our end photo!!!  Serve with some garlic bread and veggies or rice or whatever really..eggs? haha


We are having a Mad Hatter Tea Party for Emma's 4th Birthday tomorrow!!! Pics and what we did will be up as soon as I can :-)
