Description

A simple dinner that can feed the family. Stuffed and bacon-wrapped chicken with roasted carrots.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 78 large carrots, cut into sticks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 4 medium chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 7 ounces dairy-free cream cheese spread (or preferred filling)
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder, divided
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 8 slices bacon

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the carrots into sticks and arrange them on the sheet pan, leaving about 1/3 of the pan for the chicken.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle the carrots with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper and 1 teaspoon garlic powder.
  4. Butterfly the chicken breasts and smear 2 tablespoons of filling into each one. Season inside and out with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried herbs. Close and wrap each one with 2 slices of bacon.
  5. Place on the empty spot on the sheet pan and roast for 35-40 minutes at 400F or until the bacon is crispy.
  6. Remove from the oven and serve hot. Goes great with a simple green salad on the side.

Recipe Notes:

  • Can I make this recipe AIP? Yes, omit the black pepper. Use AIP-compliant bacon. Use the AIP version of my Mozz Blocks or other AIP spread for the filling.
  • Can I make this recipe Whole30? This recipe is Whole30 compliant with Kite Hill products – just keep it dairy free. Use Whole30-compatible bacon.
  • Can I make this recipe Keto? This recipe is already keto-friendly. Just portion your carrots correctly, and serve with a side salad. Or use jicama instead of carrots.
