Pimieto Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Got it from here http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/pimiento-cheese-chicken-50400000109615/


1 slice applewood-smoked bacon

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

...2 tablespoons minced green onions

1 1/2 tablespoons diced pimientos

1 tablespoon canola mayonnaise

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (I used 8 chicken tenders)

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon canola oil Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Cook bacon in a large ovenproof skillet until crisp. Remove bacon, reserving drippings in pan; crumble bacon. Combine bacon, next 6 ingredients, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cut a 1-inch-wide slit into the thick end of each breast half; carefully cut down to the center of chicken to form a deep pocket. Divide cheese mixture evenly among pockets. Secure with wooden picks. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

3. Heat pan over medium-high heat. Add oil to drippings. Add chicken to pan; saute 4 minutes. Turn chicken over. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes; let stand for 5 minutes.
