Considering how the recipes turns out, this could not be easier to put together. All I did was to butterfly the chicken breasts, season them, layer the peppers and cheese and wrap in bacon. I did not even need toothpicks and it took just a few minutes to prepare them.bacon wrapped chicken

They are cooked in the oven and then the bacon is crisped under the broiler for the last couple of minutes.  Add a bit of salad or some tomato slices and you have a tasty and filling meal.  You can use a meat thermometer to test how well the chicken is cooked if you liked.  I cooked mine for about 30 minutes.
