Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Stuffed with Avocado and Cheddar
Bacon wrapped chicken breast stuffed with avocado and cheddar…do I really need to say more than that? This mouthwatering combination is served up on the grill – this recipe will become a summertime favorite!
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).
Open chicken up and add cheddar and avocado slices. Fold chicken over cheddar and avocado, set aside. Repeat with the other chicken breast.
On cutting board, spread out 5 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.
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°F with an instant-read meat thermometer. Let rest for 2-3 minutes before serving.
Cut each stuffed breast in half vertically to serve.
