I’ve got a quick & easy recipe to share with you today! Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Goat Cheese & Asparagus.
If you’ve been reading The Bean for a while now…and by that I mean like over 2 years…you may remember when I posted this Goat Cheese, Spinach & Bacon Stuffed Chicken. Hubby said it was the best chicken he’d ever had. And it was delicious.
This is just a fun little spin on that recipe, which mostly came about because I was lazy. I didn’t feel like cooking the bacon first, so instead of chopping it up and stuffing it inside, I just wrapped it around the outside. I didn’t have any spinach, so I just chopped up some asparagus and used that instead.
The end result was still delicious. Make either this version or the original and you’ll be happy!
Here’s the recipe for this version:Print
