Okay, so it’s been snowing here in Michigan. In April. It’s annoying, but it’s nothing we’re not used to in Michigan. Hopefully it’s warmer wherever you are, and you won’t have to brush snow off your grill to make this bacon wrapped chicken breast recipe happen.

I feel like I sometimes have to talk you guys into things, like beans in cookies or healthy queso dip (another somewhat strange secret ingredient there…). Sometimes I put cottage cheese in smoothies or pancakes. I would hope you’d trust me enough by this point to just make every single one of my recipes (ha) but I am aware some might raise eyebrows.

But really, do I need to even tell you how good this recipe is going to be? BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN BREAST STUFFED WITH AVOCADO AND CHEDDAR. Sorry for yelling. But BACON. and CHEDDAR. And AVOCADO.

Another beautiful aspect of this bacon wrapped chicken breast is that it’s SO easy to make. You’ll only need 4 ingredients:

  • chicken
  • bacon
  • avocado
  • cheddar

Betcha couldn’t guess those, huh?

In my mind, grilling should be relaxed, easy. You can make this a simple meal for just your fam or for entertaining. Pair it with a quick side and a simple salad, some fresh fruit and a delicious beverage…and you’ve got yourself dinner!

One of my favorite quick sides for grilling is BUSH’S® Beans. I mean, everyone loves baked beans, am I right? And BUSH’S Beans have a ton of different varieties to choose from so you can perfectly pair baked beans or Grillin’ Beans® with whatever you have on the grill. I paired my bacon wrapped chicken breast with Steakhouse Recipe Grillin’ Beans and it was the perfect combination. I loved dipping the chicken into the beans and eating them together almost as much as I enjoyed them separately.

You can really think outside the box – they have Asian BBQ Beans that would be perfect with teriyaki salmon or an Asian grilled chicken. Or perhaps Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans sound good to you — I think they’d be great with some smoky grilled ribs. And you can’t go wrong with Country Style Baked Beans – I’ll be pairing those with turkey burgers all summer long.

I love beans because they’re a major crowd pleaser, they’re easy and delicious, and they give you lots of room to focus on spending time with family and friends out in the sun rather than slaving away on an elaborate side dish in the kitchen.

This whole scenario is almost enough to brush the snow off the grill for, isn’t it?

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts (about 10 ounces total)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced thinly
  • 10 slices center cut bacon

Directions:

  1. Using a sharp knife, carefully butterfly chicken – cut through the center but not all the way through, opening the chicken like a book. Sprinkle inside and outside of chicken with black pepper, salt if desired (I find that the bacon adds enough saltiness).
  2. Open chicken up and add cheddar and avocado slices. Fold chicken over cheddar and avocado, set aside. Repeat with the other chicken breast.
  3. On cutting board, spread 5 out bacon slices so that they are touching. Lay chicken on top of bacon slices and wrap them around, overlapping as needed. Repeat with other chicken breast.
  4. Grill over medium indirect heat with the cover down for 20-30 minutes, carefully flipping at least once, or until bacon is crispy and chicken is cooked through or measures 165 degrees Fahrenheit with an instant-read meat thermometer. Let rest for 2-3 minutes before serving.

  1. You had me at bacon wrapped… Plus avocado, how can you go wrong with that?

  2. This is so next level! Love all the flavors here :)

  3. This sounds SOOO good! I love that we both did easy 4-ingredient dinners, and then popped open a can of baked beans to make a full meal! We rule at dinner time!

  4. Avocado + Bacon is always my favorite thing ever. Bush’s Grillin’ Beans are practically the only veggie my boys eat willingly. Great meal, can’t wait to try it!

  5. This is EXACTLY how to do dinner right. You can never go wrong with bacon and avocado, and we love baked beans in this house! Pinned!

  6. What a great looking dinner!! Want!!

  7. This is so my kind of meal. I already shared it on The Low Carb Test Kitchen page!

  8. Once you try bacon wrapped chicken – there is no going back! This looks INCREDIBLE!

  9. Love Bush’s Beans as a side. Great recipe, and LOVE bacon wrapped chicken!

  10. Is it possible to do it in the oven? If so what temperature should I set the oven to?

    • Absolutely, although I haven’t tested it that way! I’d go for 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30-40 minutes or until they’re fully cooked. No promises, though, since I haven’t tested it this way! If you have a wire rack that fits on your baking sheet, you might want to try placing them on that so the bottom bacon gets crispy too.

  11. can’t go wrong with bacon

  12. Will try this asap as I am so tired of just plain chicken. It sounds very lovely.
