Bacon Wrapped Cheese-Stuffed Chicken

Millie Johnson


These are so quick and easy making them a weekday fav, but fancy enough for a party! You can switch up cheeses and spices to suit your taste. Sometimes I use smoked provolone or gouda, Gruyere, oregano, mozzarella, and sage or basil. I got this out of a First magazine years ago and tweaked it.
