Author Notes: This dish was created during a point where I became obsessed with stuffed chicken recipes and finding all the different ways it could be done. I thought what a perfect idea taking a classic dish and putting my own spin on it... as I usually do with things!JennT1981

Serves 4

  • 4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breasts trimmed of fat and pocketed
  • 4 pieces turkey bacon, cut in half
  • 4 pieces Swiss cheese, cut 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cups ground pecans
  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a slice of cheese between two half slices of bacon and stuff them into each breast. Season each side of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish combine the honey and mustard and mix thoroughly. Also combine ground pecans and bread crumbs in a different shallow dish. Evenly coat both sides of each breast first with the honey mustard sauce and next the pecan and bread crumb mixture and place into a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden crisp and juices run clear. Temperature of chicken should reach 180 degrees F.
