Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Onions, Wrapped in Bacon
…with a side of Bacon Oregano Potatoes

Ingredients

Chicken

  • 2 Large Chicken Breast
  • 1/4 Large White Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Flavoured Goat Cheese
  • 2 Strips Thick Cut Bacon
  • Your Favourite Chicken Spice
  • Oil for the pan

Potatoes

  • Enough Yukon Gold Potatoes for 2 people
  • 2 – 4 Slices of Bacon
  • Oregano, Salt, & Pepper

Steps

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Chop up all the potatoes into small cubes. Lightly coat them in olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and oregano so that they are evenly coated. Place them in a baking pan and cook for 25 minutes.

While the potatoes are cooking you can prepare the chicken. First start by dicing the onion and mixing it with the goat cheese. You may have to melt it slightly in the microwave to make it easier to work with.

Next, take each breast, top side down, and sandwich it between two sheets of plastic wrap. Flatten the chicken breast with a mallet until it is about 1/2″ thick. With the breast still top side down, remove the top sheet of plastic wrap and evenly spread half of the cheese and onion mixture onto it. Then, using the bottom sheet of plastic wrap, roll the chicken breast into itself tightly. Wrap the plastic wrap securely around the chicken breast and place in the fridge until it is ready to put in the oven.

Repeat this step with the other chicken breast.

Just before they are ready to go in the oven, wrap each chicken breast with bacon and secure with a tooth pick. Lightly brush each breast with olive oil and sprinkle on your favourite seasoning. Chop up the rest of the bacon to add with the potatoes.

When the timer goes off, pull the potatoes out of the oven. Throw in the bacon and toss. Add a little more oil and make room for the chicken breast to fit snuggly in the middle, surrounded by the potatoes. Place the pan back in the oven and cook for another 30 minutes.

Tips from the Chef…

I love this recipe, but I think I could have gone with a little less bacon! Sad but true! Obviously you can adjust the amount according to what you like. If you want the bacon to be super crispy then I would suggest adding it to the potatoes at the beginning of the cooking process, just keep your eye on it.

I love the flavours that the onion and goat cheese provide. You can use any flavoured goat cheese that you like, or use a plain one and add your favourite spices. I used some that was left over from an appetizer, so it worked out perfectly. As for the spice I used on the chicken, I went with a light coating of Montreal Chicken Spice. It worked well with all the flavours.

When choosing different chicken seasoning and flavoured goat cheese, you just want to make sure that you aren’t using anything too powerful. The flavours should compliment each other, not take each other over. I know I always tend to over do it, because my favourite flavours are quite strong, but it really works in your favour to choose flavours that compliment each other.

This potato recipe is one of my favourites and I find using Yukon Gold potatoes works the best. They turn out warm and soft and the flavour is just perfect.

I served this dish with a side of Steak House Salad, but you’ll have to wait to get the recipe for that ;)

Enjoy!
