Considering how fancy this recipe turns out, it could not be easier to put together. All I did was to butterfly the chicken breasts, season them, layer the peppers and cheese and wrapped them in bacon.
I used sweet yellow peppers but any bell peppers will do. (Or if you love spice, you could even use chili peppers.)
I did not even toothpicks to secure the chicken, and it took just a few minutes to prepare them. What could be better for a busy cook?
The bacon wrapped chicken pieces are cooked in the oven and then the bacon is crisped under the broiler for the last couple of minutes to add some extra texture.
Add a small 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.
