Cheesy Mashed Potato & Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts Recipe

Cheesy Mashed Tater & Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Sooo one evening while my love was away, I was going through my thousands of recipes and couldn't decide on a single thing to make, so I created these mouthgasmic things instead.

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 3 or more strips of bacon (I used turkey bacon because thats all I happened to have at the time)
  • 1 pouch cheesy instant mashed potatoes
  • 2 slices cheese, I used colby-jack
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups italian bread crumbs
  • Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, pepper, and whatever else you wish to mix in with the bread crumbs
  • lots of toothpicks!
  1.  Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Prepare mashed potatoes as directed on package.
  3. Cook bacon til yummy and crispy.
  4. Flatten chicken breasts out as much as possible.
  5. Put a spoonful of mashed potatoes in the middle of the chicken breasts, then add bacon on top of the taters (you'll have to break the bacon up into a few pieces).
  6. Roll the chicken breasts up and hold together with toothpicks. *Beware, this gets messy!
  7. Beat egg in shallow dish.
  8. Mix breadcrumbs, parm cheese, and all your yummy spices in another shallow dish. 
  9. Dip the messy yummy chicken in the egg, then bread crumbs, then put them in a greased baking dish.  *Feel free to pat some extra bread crumbs on, its hard to get the crumbs in all the crevices. 
  10. I honestly forgot how long I cooked these for, so just keep an eye on them, cook for about 15 minutes and see how its goin.  
  11. Put slices of cheese on top of each breast for the last 5 minutes of baking, or just until melted.
  12. Serve with whats left of the mashed potatoes.
  13. Bon Appetit!
