Notes

Ingredients

  • 5 bacon slices

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 1 1/2 cups spinach

  • 1 tsp minced garlic

  • 3/4 cup cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 1 pound boneless chicken thighs

  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • On a baking sheet, place the bacon slices about ½ inch apart. Put the sheet in the preheated oven. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crispy. Set aside to cool. Maintain the oven temperature.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the spinach and garlic. Cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes. Remove the spinach from the skillet. Set aside.
  • Chop the cooled bacon into small pieces.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sauteed spinach, and chopped bacon.
  • On a flat surface, lay out the chicken thighs. Spread the meat open so the thighs lay flat. Place an equal portion of the cream cheese mixture on each piece of chicken.
  • Top each with the Swiss cheese, equally divided.
  • Close the thighs. Secure with toothpicks. Season with the salt and pepper. Place the chicken thighs in a baking dish.
  • Put the baking dish into the preheated oven. Bake for about 18 minutes. With a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature. It should reach 165°F before serving.
