Bacon, Spinach & Feta (Un) Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Today, I’m sharing my Bacon, Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken. This recipe is definitely worth trying out, trust me. Jason’s asked for it three times in three weeks. The kids even like it, which is strange because they don’t usually like things all mixed together and ingredients that aren’t easily identifiable. It’s that good.

And here’s a secret: this stuffed chicken recipe isn’t really stuffed at all, so it is much easier to make than traditional stuffed chicken recipes. Maybe I better title would be un-stuffed chicken!

Bacon, Spinach & Feta (Un) Stuffed Chicken

I originally found this stuffed chicken recipe while perusing Rachael Ray’s magazine. I thought it sounded amazingly good, but like a whole lot of work. So I thought I’d try to make it a bit simpler to suit my family’s needs.

Who has time to stuff chicken for dinner? This stuffed chicken recipe takes from time consuming to quick by simply layering ingredients instead of stuffing.
