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.
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
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
