Skinless, boneless chicken breasts are stuffed with smoked fontina cheese and pieces of bacon and browned. I fix these in my iron skillet. Makes an elegant dish and the flavors are marvelous! This is great with peas.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 cup shredded smoked fontina cheese
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded 1/4-inch thick
  • toothpicks
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 2 Cook bacon in a large oven-proof skillet until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Crumble bacon into a bowl; reserve drippings in skillet. Mix fontina cheese into bacon until combined.
  3. 3 Lay chicken breasts on a flat surface; place 1/4 cup of bacon-cheese mixture on top of each. Roll up tightly and secure with toothpicks; sprinkle with black pepper. Arrange rolls in the skillet containing reserved bacon drippings.
  4. 4 Brown chicken over medium heat until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Cover the skillet and transfer to the oven.
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
