Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Bacon Mozzarella Chicken

Bacon Mozzarella Chicken


I love chicken. We eat it A LOT! The only problem is, my husband gets bored with chicken quite easily. I've had to come up with different variations to keep our chicken dinners popping! I've been making this one for the past 10 years or so. It's one of the many recipes we have tried that has stood the test of time.

bacon, chicken, mozzarella

bacon, chicken, mozzarella

Ingedients

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbs bacon bits
paprika, salt, and pepper to taste
ranch dressing for topping

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine cheese and bacon bits together in a small bowl
Flatten chicken with a mallet
Put 1/4 cup of cheese/bacon mixture on one of the chicken breasts. Roll chicken up and over mixture until it is sealed in. Insert a toothpick into chicken to keep it closed. Repeat with the other chicken breast.
Sprinkle tops with paprika, salt, and pepper 
Bake chicken in preheated over for about 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
Just before serving, squeeze ranch dressing over each chicken breast
Serve

    1. I really think the paprika gives it that extra oomph. We also rub it on our turkey at Thanksgiving too!

    1. The bacon bits give it kind of a smokey flavor. I can see where one would not like to put that in their chicken though!

  4. Using ranch dressing for a recipe is a no-brainer I haven't thought of before. Thanks for the share, my husband and kids are going to love this (they're all totally in love with bacon).
