Bacon Wrapped Guacamole Stuffed Chicken (Video)

Tender, moist, and juicy chicken breasts, stuffed with spicy guacamole and wrapped to with bacon. 
Bacon Wrapped Guacamole stuffed ChickenI’m on an avocado spree this week. I purchased a whole bunch at my local fruit market and waited until they were perfectly ripe. If you’re an avocado addict like I am, then you know there’s no better feeling then opening a perfectly ripe avocado.

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite appetizers, the guacamole stuffed onion ring. Today, the guacamole elevates this humble chicken dish to a new level. Because the chicken is stuffed then wrapped in bacon it stays super moist and tender. I used turkey bacon to wrap the chicken because it’s much healthy and not very greasy.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium chicken breasts
  • 6-8 strips turkey bacon
  • For the guacamole:
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced
  • ½ jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado. Add the tomato, jalapeno,cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir until fully combined. Set aside

  3. Lightly season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Cut each chicken breast horizontally about 1 inch, do not go all the way through to the other side; just enough to make a small pouch in the chicken (see video above).

  4. Stuff half of the guacamole mixture into each chicken breast. Wrap each breast tightly with 3-4 bacon strips. Heat a large heavy-duty pan on medium/high heat. Place bacon on the pan and sear 2 minutes per side. Place pan in the pre-heated for 15 minutes. Remove chicken from oven and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting.
