And there you have it… see you next time, guys!
What? That says it all, doesn’t it?
Surely I don’t really need to add anything after having said BACON, do I?
HA! HA! You wish! You won’t get rid of me that easily… I always have something else to say, bacon or no bacon!
Frankly, I had forgotten just how good that stuff really is. How it just seems to make everything better.
And just how insanely good it smells as it cooks.
I wonder how many pounds of the stuff I will be getting out of a half pig?
Lots, I hope!
OH! I can’t wait to try that. Funny thing is it NEVER appealed to me before, until I saw this particular picture the other day. I’ve been dreaming about it since, even though I never even tasted it. I can just imagine what it’ll taste like.
Yeah, my taste buds have a really good imagination! Hopefully, reality and their imagination will meet up in some very happy, yummy place!
Alright, that’s enough daydrooling for now… let’s get back to this recipe, shall we?
As you can see in the pictures, when I made this, I sadly had only 5 strips of bacon left in the fridge, and there was no way I was driving 100km to get more, so I was kind of forced to keep one breast completely naked… shamelessly exposed!
Poor thing! It has no idea what it’s been missing. Although, it did steal a lot of flavor from the beautifully dressed, totally bacon wrapped breast that was cooking right beside it!
And you know what? This might even be something that I would do again, on purpose.
That way, I have options!
Oh and about that stuffing… although I think it went really well with the smokey flavor of the bacon, it seems like my brain kept demanding olives the whole time I was eating…
So next time, I think I’ll leave the pine nuts out and add olives instead.
Oh, and a handful of hazelnuts, perhaps.
One thing I can guarantee though is that there will be a next time! And another one… and another…
I soooo can’t wait to get my hands on that bacon!
Slice the chicken breasts open: slice down the middle, parallel to the board, almost all the way to the end.
Spread the stuffing, roll the breasts and carefully wrap each one with the bacon strips.
Let the meat rest before slicing…
Slice on a diagonal to reveal the beautiful stuffing!
Does that bacon look crispy enough for you?
And this was my actual dinner that night…
Can you say YUM?
