Rosemary & Date Stuffed Chicken Breast

Let me start off by saying you have to try this recipe. It is simple, easy and will make you think, “Did I just make this?!”

My husband is not much of a fan for baked chicken, but this recipe is a keeper.
And I think to date, this is the only baked chicken recipe he has given two thumbs up for!

I love that it looks fancy, but really is a cinch to put together.


You’ll marinade strips of chicken and place the stuffing ingredients in the center. Then you’ll roll the chicken up, wrap a piece of bacon around and secure with a toothpick.


Place the chicken rolls in a baking dish and pour the remaining marinade over the rolls.


Bake for 20 minutes and that’s it!


I served mine with rosemary roasted red potatoes and sauteed thin beans.
