Bacon Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breast

I experimented last night on my family and it turned out great!
I just took some of our favorites and put them together in a different way.

Bacon....Cheese....Butter....How could you go wrong!
Best part....each stuffed chicken breast is only 378 calories!!

Since there are so many goodies in this chicken, we just
had a nice garden salad on the side.

This recipe makes 6 servings (sorry, big family)

  • 6 strips of bacon, chopped
  • 1 package of fresh mushrooms, 8oz, sliced
  • 1 whole onion diced (I wanted to use green onions but didn't have any on hand)
  • 4 cloves of garlic, rough chopped
  • 1 cup of Skim or Low-fat Cheese (I used skim mozzarella)
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast, trimmed
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter
  • Toothpicks ( I used 2 for each stuffed chicken)

  • Saute bacon, onion, garlic & mushrooms until bacon is cooked
  • Drain excess bacon grease
  • Place mixture in bowl to cool, once cooled add cheese & mix to combine
  • Meanwhile, cut a pocket into each chicken breast 
  • Stuff each chicken with the mixture until full

  • Use 2 toothpicks to seal the opening so the goodies don't fall out while cooking.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons of butter in a skillet of medium-high heat
  • Once butter is melted and starts to brown add the stuffed chicken breast
  • Be sure not to crowd so they can evenly brown (I only cooked 3 at a time)
  • Cook until golden brown on all sides & fully cooked though (about 10 minutes on each)
