Bacon: With a side of chicken/spinach/cheese
I found this recipe through allrecipes forever ago. The first time I tried it I used turkey bacon...don't. Go all out. You taste buds will thank you, you can ignore your arteries just this once. You will be good tomorrow.
1 10 oz bag of spinach
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 shredded pepperjack cheese
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 chicken breast, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
pinch of pepper
8 slices of bacon
Preheat oven to 375.
Put spinach in a glass bowl and put in microwave for three minutes, stirring every minute or so, until wilted. Stir in sour cream, cheese, and garlic.
Lay chicken out. Place a spoonful of mixture on each piece of chicken. Roll up chicken to enclose mixture. Wrap each one in two pieces of bacon. Can secure with a toothpick. Place in shallow baking pan.
Bake uncovered for 35 minutes, then increase heat to 500 or set to broil for another 5-10 minutes to crisp up the leading lady...BACON.
Serve with a green salad so you feel a little better about all the bacon.
