Stuffed Chicken with Spinach & Bacon


This is a very simple yet elegant dish to prepare - allow 20-30 minutes for preparation, and 20 minutes cooking time.




Bacon three strips
4 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts or Thighs
Szeged Chicken Rub*, about 1 teaspoon
Mozzarella Cheese, 1 small slice for each chicken piece
Baby Spinach, 6-8 leaves per piece of chicken
Fresh Basil, 1 large leaf per piece of chicken
Salt & Pepper to taste
Olive Oil to drizzle


  • Preheat oven to 350.

  • Cut the bacon into -inch pieces and fry until crisp. Drain on a paper towel.

  • Spread out the chicken pieces and pound flat between two layers of plastic wrap.

  • Sprinkle about teaspoon Szeged Chicken Rub onto each chicken piece.

  • Lay several spinach leaves on the end of each chicken piece.

  • Put one leaf of fresh basil on top of spinach.

  • Put slice of Mozzarella cheese on top of basil.

  • Sprinkle bacon pieces over Mozzarella.

  • Roll each chicken piece up tightly, enclosing the fillings. Insert toothpicks or use oven-proof binders to prevent unrolling.
