Guac Stuffed and Bacon Wrapped Chicken (Whole30 Compliant)

Is there anything better than guacamole or bacon?  I think not… So why not add them both to chicken and call it dinner?  Yup, that’s exactly what I did!

This recipe is pretty dang easy.  The longest part of it is getting all the spices together.  Maybe I’m just a lazy cook but I really dislike having to measure out several spices for a recipe.  Honestly, I’ve looked at recipes and vetoed them due to the amount of measuring spices I’d have to do.  Lame haha.

Well, I guess that mean’s this recipe is so good that I’m willing to measure all the spices.  That’s a good sign!

  • Ingredients:
  • 5 Chicken breasts (Sliced in the middle to create a pocket.  I buy my chicken locally, so the breasts are usually a lot smaller than what you buy at the grocery store so keep that in mind.  Aim for 2 pounds of chicken)
  • 8oz. of guacamole (You can make your own or it’s pretty easy to find Whole30 compliant guacamole at most stores.)
  • 5 slices of compliant bacon
  • 1 Tbs. Chili Powder
  • 1 Tbs. Paprika
  • 1 Tbs. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Pepper
  • 1 tsp.  Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt

Directions:

  • Combine all your spices in a bowl.
  • With your sliced (remember pocket) chicken, sprinkle half the seasoning on both sides.
  • With the pocket facing up, fill each chicken breast with as much guacamole as you can.
  • Wrap a slice of bacon around each stuffed chicken breast.  This should help keep the guacamole in the chicken.
  • Lay each chicken breast on a baking dish (I used a glass 9×13) with the pocket facing up (again helps to keep the guac in while it cooks).
  • Sprinkle remaining 1 Tbs. spice blend over top (you’ll have some spice blend left over).
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degree F.
