Star Ingredient

  • Chicken and bacon pair perfectly together with an added secret piece of cheese stuffed in the center. Slow roasted on a sheet pan with potatoes and asparagus. As the potatoes roast they soak up all the delicious flavors of the bacon drippings. Partway through cooking we add the asparagus to the sheet pan party for a full well rounded meal! To serve I like topping the chicken with BBQ sauce but this is optional.

steps for making bacon wrapped cheese stuffed bacon plated with asparagus and roasted potatoes

Prep the Bacon Wrapped Chicken and Vegetables

1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a sheet pan with tin foil. Tip: use 2-3 layers to ensure even coverage for an easier clean up.

2 Carefully use a sharp knife to slice a space in the center of each piece of chicken. Hold the knife straight while slicing to avoid cutting through the top and bottom of the chicken.

3 Stuff two pieces of cheese into each chicken breast. I like using two different cheese so I use cheddar and Monterrey Jack but you can use any cheese you like. Season the chicken with garlic powder.

4 Wrap each piece of chicken with 2 pieces of bacon. Place the chicken in the center of the sheet pan.

5 Wash and cube potatoes. Season with the garlic powder, chili flakes, salt and pepper, and a small amount of oil to coat the potatoes. Add the potatoes to the sheet pan around the chicken.

Bake

6 Cover the sheet pan with tin foil and bake for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft in the center.

7 Uncover and push the potatoes to one side of the pan to make space for the asparagus. Add the asparagus and toss

in the cooking oil in the pan to coat.

8 Return to the oven and continue cooking uncovered for 10-15 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender and the chicken and potatoes are crispy.

Optional but highly recommended, brush the chicken with your favorite BBQ sauce before serving.

Serve and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks for the BEST Stuffed Chicken and Vegetables

  • When stuffing the chicken don’t worry if the knife pierces the sides or edges, wrap the bacon tightly around the chicken and use the bacon to cover any small cuts to help keep the cheese in place while cooking
  • No need to worry if a little bit of the stuffing leaks out during the cooking process. That is normal and will just add more flavor to those potatoes that are already roasting away in the bacon drippings!
  • Prep ahead – you can stuff the chicken and wrap it in bacon, then put it in a container in the fridge before cooking
  • Cut your potatoes in the roughly the same sized pieces for even cooking
  • Use regular cut bacon for this recipe, not thick cut as it will take longer to get crispy in the oven when wrapped around the chicken
  • When prepping your asparagus cut the woody/tough ends off
