Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 30 Minutes |  Total Time: 40 minutes |  Servings: 4 People |  Calories: 485.71kcal

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt divided
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 4 oz can sliced mushrooms
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 c grated Parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 4 slices bacon

INSTRUCTIONS:

Let’s start by preheating the oven to 375°F.

Prep the Chicken

  • Time to do a little surgery on those chicken breasts. Freakishly large or otherwise.
  • So put them on a cutting board. Now get a really sharp knife and you’re going to cut a pocket into the side of each breast. Make it as close to the middle as you can and don’t cut all the way through the back.
  • Put the paprika, 1/2 tsp of sea salt, garlic powder, and onion powder into a small bowl and mix it up well.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mix evenly over both sides of all the chicken breasts.

Make the Stuffing

  • Now grab a small mixing bowl. Put the cream cheese into the bowl and stir it up a little bit.
  • Then throw the Parmesan cheese, the minced garlic, and the rest of the sea salt into the bowl and mix all that up really well.
  • Drain the mushrooms and chop them up. Leave them in big chunks. Add mix those into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Divide the cream cheese mixture into quarters. Now get a spoon and put the mixture into the pockets you cut into the sides of the chicken breasts.
  • Try to tuck it into the back of the pocket as much as possible. It will start to melt and run out a little during baking, so don’t give it a head start.
  • Now go get those bacon strips. Cut them each into 2 pieces. So instead of 4 long strips, you now have 8 shorter strips.
  • Take 2 of those shorter strips and wrap them around one of the chicken breasts. I try to cover up as much of the opening of the pocket as I can. That helps some with the escaping cream cheese mixture.
  • When you’ve got them wrapped up, put those bad boys into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish and pop them into the preheated oven.
  • Bake them for a minimum of 30 minutes. If you have the gargantuan chicken breasts, it’s going to take longer than that.
  • The ones you see in the pictures actually took about 50 minutes. But start checking at 30 minutes to see if they are cooked through.
  • When the chicken is done you can turn on the broiler to crisp up the bacon if you want to. I usually want to…
