Bacon-Feta Chicken Rolls

I usually post so many baked goods and desserts on this blog (baking is my passion) that some of you may wonder if I ever make real food. The problem comes from having a lot of favorite dinners and not really seeing a ton of new ones that I want to try. I have over one hundred dinner recipes posted here, so while rotating between those, we usually don't try many new main dish recipes. I do make a point to try at least one or two new dinners a month, but it doesn't always work out that way.

This recipe, however, was one that I knew I had to make as soon as I saw it. I love anything with feta or bacon... throw the two together and I am in heaven. The added bonus in this chicken is roasted red bell peppers. We all LOVED this meal and it will definately be made again.


Bacon-Feta Chicken Rolls
Taste of Home

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
8 bacon strips, cooked and drained
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
4 roasted sweet red pepper halves, drained and patted dry
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Flatten to 1/4-in. thickness. Top each with two strips bacon, 1/4 cup feta cheese and a red pepper half; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roll up starting with short side, bringing the ends to meet. Tie at 1-1/2-in. intervals with kitchen string or secure with toothpicks.

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken in oil on all sides. Transfer to an ungreased 8-in. square baking dish. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove string/toothpicks.
