This dish was absolutely delicious. In fact, delicious doesn’t cut it, they were divine!! Everyone enjoyed every bite and second helpings were in order! It’s pretty simple to make, simpler than it looks! You can serve this as a light meal with some vegetables or a salad and a sauce. Or with potatoes or pasta. If you don’t fancy bacon you can simply omit it and just secure your stuffed chicken breast with toothpicks. Let’s get to it
