Chrissy Teigen’s Boursin and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Boursin and Bacon Stuffed Chicken - Just the TipSince this is about the 3rd or 4th time I’ve made this chicken, I figured it deserved a spot on the blog. I love Chrissy Teigen – she has a super entertaining Twitter presence, she’s freaking beautiful, and she has an awesome – albeit somewhat abandoned food blog (though I realize that I shouldn’t judge in this category too much). I think I first stumbled upon her blog because it was highlighted in some low-carb spotlight in a magazine, but her enthusiasm for of all types of food really comes through.

This chicken is pretty simple and straight-forward, but so so so good. Check it out!

Chrissy Teigen’s Boursin and Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Adapted from So Delushious
Serves 4

4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 5 ounce package Boursin cheese (I used garlic & herb flavor)
4 slices bacon, cut in half
8 slices thin prosciutto
1/2 lemon, juiced
Salt and pepper
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 pint grape tomatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 375.  Cut each piece of chicken horizontally and open it like a book so that you have one thinner piece. Lay some plastic wrap over each piece of chicken and flatten to an even thickness with a meat mallet.
  2. Spread 1/4 of the boursin cheese over each chicken breast and top with two pieces of the halved bacon.
  3. Roll from the short side in. Wrap two pieces of prosciutto around each chicken roll, without overlapping too much. Place into a 9×13 baking dish and season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour chicken stock into bottom of the pan and add in the cherry tomatoes. Bake on middle rack for 40-45 minutes until the chicken reaches 160 degrees.  I served this with the roasted tomatoes, some blanched green beans and my favorite scallion parmesan whole wheat couscous.
