25 min
1 hr 15 min
4 servings

What You Need

medium  chicken breast halves (2 to 2-1/2 lb. total)
cup  shredded mozzarella cheese (3 oz.)
cup  crumbled feta cheese
cup  chopped peanuts
slices  bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled or 1/4 cup cooked bacon pieces
 Salt and ground black pepper
 Bottled ranch salad dressing (optional)

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Skin chicken, if desired. Using a sharp knife, make a pocket in each breast by cutting horizontally from side to side, leaving edges intact. In a bowl combine mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, peanuts, and bacon. Spoon filling into pockets, packing lightly (pockets will be full). Place chicken, bone side down, in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Lightly sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and paprika.

2. Bake, uncovered, for 50 to 55 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the chicken registers 170 degree F. Drizzle salad dressing over chicken before serving. Makes 4 servings.
