Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, about 5 ounces each
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 ¼ cup chopped broccoli
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 slices bacon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into the side of each chicken breast. Drizzle chicken with olive oil.
  3. Add the paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to a small bowl and stir to combine. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of the chicken.
  4. Add cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, garlic, and remaining ½ teaspoon of salt to a small mixing bowl and stir well to combine. Stir in the broccoli.
  5. Spoon the cheese mixture into each chicken breast evenly.
  6. Slice each piece of bacon in half and wrap each piece of chicken with 2 pieces of bacon. 
  7. Place the chicken breasts in a 9x13 baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  8. Place pan under the broiler to crisp the bacon more, if desired.

Notes

Be sure to chop the broccoli fairly small to make it easy to stuff the chicken.

Swap out the seasoning blend for any that you prefer. This is our standard spice mix for seasoning chicken and it does work well here.
