Ingredients

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Rinse all fresh produce items under cold running water.
  3. In a heavy bottom frying pan over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Discard all but 2 tablespoons of drippings. Add onion and garlic and cook for 4 minutes or until soft.
  4. Transfer bacon, garlic and onion to a large bowl. Add spinach, egg, croutons, 1/2 tablespoon rosemary and roasted red pepper; toss gently to combine. Wash hands after handling raw eggs.
  5. With a small, sharp knife, cut a pocket in the thick side of each breast. Stuff with spinach mixture and close with wooden toothpicks if needed. Wash hands after handling raw chicken. Season stuffed breasts lightly with salt and pepper.
  6. In the same pan, over medium heat, melt butter. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, for 25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit as verified with an instant-read food thermometer. Remove toothpick and sprinkle with remaining rosemary. Serve with lemon wedges.
