How to butterfly a chicken breast

Hold the chicken steadily with one hand and then use a sharp knife to slice halfway through the breast and stop about halfway into the chicken to make a pocket-like structure.

1.   Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.

2.   Using a small knife, cut a slit lengthwise partway across each chicken breast to create a deep pocket.

3.   In a small bowl mix together the cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, parsley and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4.   Spoon the cheese mixture evenly into the pocket of each chicken breast.

5.   Alternatively, you can put the filling into a plastic bag and snip the tip to create a makeshift pastry bag to squeeze the filling into the chicken.

6.   Season the top of each chicken breast with salt and pepper then wrap 2 slices of bacon around each chicken breast.

7.   Place the chicken breasts on the sheet pan; scatter the potatoes around the chicken.

Coat the potatoes in cooking spray and season with salt and pepper.

8.   Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Broil for an additional 3-5 minutes or until bacon is browned and crispy.

9.   Serve immediately, with chopped parsley as a garnish if desired

Tips to be kept in mind

Seal the chicken breasts with a toothpick to prevent any spillage.

Make sure to remove the toothpicks before serving.

The filling for the chicken can be made up to 3 days in advance

Do not use thick cut bacon for this recipe, as it will take longer to get crispy in the oven
