Maple Glazed Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breasts


4 boneless chicken breasts

8 slices of bacon

Maple Glaze

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 tsp Dijon Mustard

chopped parsley (garnish)

Stuffing (optional)

4 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup grated cheese

2 Tablespoons Mayonaise

1 clove minced garlic

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • If stuffing, slice chicken breast almost in half horizontally.
  • Combine cream cheese, grated cheese, mayonaise and garlic and spoon mixture into each breast.
  • Wrap chicken in bacon.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together maple syrup and dijon mustard; whisk until well combined.
  • Brush each chicken breast with maple syrup glaze.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 45-55 minutes.
  • Brush/baste with the juices couple of times during baking. Chicken is done when internal temperature reaches 165˚F.
  • If the bacon is not fully caramelized after cooking, place the baking dish under the broiler for 2 minutes to finish it off.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Spoon juices over chicken and garnish with chopped parsley.
  • Serve.

Note: Instead of wrapping chicken breasts in the bacon, we find it nicer to just drape the bacon over the top and sides as the bacon underneath does not caramelize.
