Chicken breast can be dry, but this recipe by Island Vibe Cooking on YouTube shows how to make a bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken with spinach and cream cheese. This is an easy chicken dinner that can be made in one pan or in an air fryer. So, if want a unique chicken dinner with lots of flavors, the bacon wrapped around the chicken breast keeps it moist. It’s super filling with all of the ingredients that stuff the chicken breast.
First, make the filling by adding the spinach, cream cheese, and mozzarella cheese to a large bowl. Mix well and add Italian seasoning and crispy bacon. Set aside. Cut the chicken breast by forming a little pocket so the filling can be inserted. Season the chicken breast with oil first then add paprika, cajun seasoning, garlic, and Italian seasoning.

Next, take the bacon-wrapped chicken breast and place it on a hot skillet to give the bacon a nice color. Slightly cook it on both sides. Then, put it in the oven at 360 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
Overall, the bacon-wrapped chicken breast looks super juicy because the bacon fat locks in all of the moisture around it. It looks amazing and I would love to make this because it is a keto-friendly meal. Serve with vegetables on the side or a side salad. It’s an easy chicken dinner and you can make a few of these to meal prep.
