Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Hey Guys on this Tasty Tuesday I wanted to share a recipe, partially stolen from an amazing Paleo cookbook that I borrowed from WeArePrimalTwo. It is called Practical Paleo. The original recipe is the Bacon Wrapped Smoky Chicken Thighs. I made it Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach and Organic Skim Cheese. My recipe is below:

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless  boneless chicken breast
  • 8 slices of bacon, thick sliced
  • 2 tsp McCormick’s Mesquite Chicken Seasoning
  • 2 tsp of garlic
  • 8 ounces of spinach
  • 4 tablespoons of organic non fat skim cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • salt and pepper for taste

Preparation: Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with 1 tsp of mesquite + garlic seasoning. Mix the spinach, egg white, and cheese with some salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Slice the chicken breast almost all the way through to make it look like a bun. Place some of the spinach and cheese mix in between the two “buns” and  then wrap each one in 2 strips of bacon. Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Enjoy!

Yield: 4 bacon-wrapped chicken thighs

Sidenote: I paired it with Zucchini Pasta! Yummy!

Happy Eating!

Paleo Update

brocolli and chicken

Hey Guys,

Keeping it short and sweet this morning. As promised I wanted to share a bit about my first day of paleoing. It was so HARD. EEK! During lunch, I went to the hospital cafeteria and tried to find food that stuck to the paleo diet. Every where I looked there was nothing. I think this may be due to my inexperience but I walked around in circles trying to find something appetizing and was finally able to find chicken breast and broccoli which turned out to be surprisingly delicious, even though the chicken breast was a wee bit dry. I am officially in search of some awesome paleo recipes. I have definitely seen some online on my instagram and facebook browsing. I love to cook so I will get creative as well. But I definitely need help and advice.

Forever in search of awesome,

LoeilMD
