Chicken breasts are very versatile and you can prepare them many ways. You can make this Smoked Stuffed Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breast recipe using a healthy stuffing of spinach and mushrooms. Use hickory wood to smoke it or try our Premium Sage bisquettes.
4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 Bacon slices
1 Tbsp butter
½ Onion, minced
2 Cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
3 Cups fresh spinach
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp black pepper
- In a skillet, melt butter on medium heat. Add onion and sliced mushrooms. Cook until tender.
- Add the spinach, salt, and pepper, and stir until cooked and wilted. Remove from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
- Put the mushroom and spinach mixture in a food processor and pulse, so it is evenly minced but not overly processed.
- Holding the knife horizontally, insert into the thick end of each chicken breast and cut to make a deep pocket. Be careful not to pierce through the other end.
- Spoon the mushroom and spinach mixture evenly into the pockets of each chicken breast.
- Wrap each stuffed chicken breast with two slices of bacon. Place on smoker rack.
- Set the smoker to 250 F using Bradley Premium Sage Bisquettes (or Hickory Bisquettes).
- Smoke the chicken until they reach an internal temperature of 165 F.
