Bacon Wrapped Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Chicken – juicy chicken breasts are stuffed with a cheesy spinach artichoke filling, then wrapped in thick cut bacon and baked to perfection. This is a dinner no one can resist!
Hey y’all! I have a dinner of epically good proportions for you today. Bacon, chicken, cheese, and spinach artichoke dip come together and the result is nothing short of magical!
Have you ever heard the phrase “bacon makes everything better?” I’ve been a believer in that phrase for a long time now. There is just something special about the effect that bacon has on food, and it can dress up just about anything. Heck, bacon is even the star of many desserts. If you’ve never indulged in a Maple Bacon Donut before, I urge you to seek one out!
This Bacon Wrapped Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Chicken has been an idea that’s been floating around in my head for a long time now. I’m always looking for fun ways to dress up a chicken breast, and stuffing them is one of my favorites. The possibilities are truly endless. Spinach Artichoke Dip is one of my favorite appetizers and I thought it would taste pretty yummy paired with chicken. Then for a truly delicious finishing touch, I thought, HEY! Why not wrap it all up in bacon?! I mean, ANY excuse to use my absolute favorite bacon of all time, Wright® Brand Applewood Smoked Bacon, is a win win for me.
I’ve loved Wright Brand Bacon for a long time and like to buy mine from my local Kroger store. It’s thick-sliced, hand-selected & hand-trimmed, high quality, and comes from the best cuts of premium meat. It’s also naturally smoked with wood chips to give it that unique and delicious flavor. It comes in five different flavors including Hickory Smoked, Smoked Brown Sugar, Bourbon Barrel Smoked, Oak Barrel Smoked, and my personal favorite, Applewood Smoked.
