Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken

There are times that I just want to step up my  dinner game and make a more elegant dinner. I love chicken and it one of the easiest meats to use in meals, creating a stuffed chicken dinner being an easy technique. This stuffed chicken filled with chicken andouille sausage, corn, green beans. As an added bonus the whole breast is wrapped in bacon to not only help keep it together but step up the flavor game.

A few hints: A thin cut butterflied chicken breast is used for this recipe so if you don’t want to butterfly the chicken yourself, you can buy it already cut. I used chicken andouille sausage but you can use any kind you have available and use a food processor to ground if you have the link form of sausage. You can mix any veggies you want for the stuffing, just keep the volumes the same.
