Ingredients

  • 8 slices Bacon thin sliced
  • 2 Chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 5 cloves Garlic chopped
  • 2 ounces Cream cheese softened
  • 8 ounces Spinach fresh baby
  • 2 ounces Mozzarella cheese sliced
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Smoked paprika sprinkled
  • Parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Carefully butterfly the chicken breasts and then pound until thin (about 1/4 inch).
  • Place bacon strips on a plate between paper towels and microwave for 1 minute.
  • In a medium sized skillet sauté chopped garlic in butter for 2 minutes over low heat. Be careful not to burn.
  • Add softened cream cheese and stir for 1 minute, until melted. Add baby spinach in batches and stir until wilted and blended with the cream cheese, butter, and garlic. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place thinly sliced mozzarella cheese over the flattened chicken breast then top with the spinach mixture. Roll up carefully. Wrap with 2 slices of bacon and secure with rounded toothpicks.
  • Sprinkle the top of the chicken roll ups with smoked paprika and bake in a shallow baking pan (cookie sheet) at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove and set oven to broil and return to oven for 2-3 minutes to crisp the bacon.

Notes

You may wish to place a cooling rack for baking in your baking pan so the fat from the bacon will drain below the chicken.
