Guacamole stuffed chicken breasts are wrapped around one of everyone’s favorite dips, guacamole. Add a little bacon, ’cause everything’s better with bacon, for a quick & easy meal that will wow your guests.
Everyone’s lives are so busy these days that quick and easy are magic words lots of us live by. This recipe is all that and oh so tasty too! How can it now be when chicken is stuffed with one of my all-time favorite dips – fresh guacamole! And there’s nothing to say that you can’t nibble away on the extra guacamole since there is always some left over. 🙂
I used my “the only recipe you’ll ever need” classic guacamole, which you can find here, and made it prior to putting the meal together. Once that’s done it’s time to prepare the chicken. Now you could purchase chicken cutlets that are already pounded or just take a few minutes and pound your own. All you need is a large ziploc bag or several sheets of plastic wrap. Place chicken inside and, using a mallet, pound away until the chicken is about 1/2-inch thick.
All you have left to do is place a small amount of guacamole on one end of the chicken breast and roll it up. Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each breast and secure with a toothpick or two. Place on a rack in a foil covered pan, to make cleanup easy, and you’re all set to bake.
Out comes this moist and delicious bacon-y flavored chicken which accompanied with the smooth guacamole will have you sighing with its deliciousness. It’s perfect to serve any night of the week but special enough for entertaining too.
I served mine over a southwestern-style lentil mixture (Birdseye Steamfresh Protein Blends) to complete the meal.
But, for a change of pace, you can also serve it with salsa on the side – can you say yum? Enjoy!
