It's time to pull your grills out and celebrate summer by making these bacon wrapped guacamole stuffed chicken breasts! I took two of my favourite foods, bacon and avocado and combined them into a tasty dinner that is just begging to be grilled! Although this recipe might look a little challenging with the stuffing and the wrapping, it's actually pretty easy! You start off by pounding the chicken breasts until they are about 1/4 inch thick with a meat mallet (I have used a rolling pin to do this) and then you just place the guacamole on top of one side and roll it up. You can either wrap the bacon around the chicken one slice at a time to ensure a single layer of bacon or you can just lay a few strips of bacon out, place the chicken on one end and wrap it all up in one go. The essential thing about this recipe is to get the bacon nice and crispy and this is easy on the grill but if you are stuck indoors you can either pan fry the wrapped chicken and then place it in the oven or you can cook it in the oven and then turn the oven up to broil. No matter how you do it this bacon wrapped guacamole stuffed chicken is sure to be the talk of the town!

Mmmm... crispy bacon-y goodness!
I know what you are thinking right now: "But Kevin, this meal only includes two of the three major food groups; you've got the bacon and avocado but where is the cheese?" Well, I've got you covered, or rather I got these tasty bacon wrapped guacamole stuffed chicken breasts covered, in plenty of cheese and then placed back on the grill until it melts!
Bacon Wrapped Guacamole Stuffed Chicken
Tender chicken breast stuffed with creamy guacamole and wrapped in bacon that's grilled until the bacon is nice and crispy!
- 4 (6 ounce) chicken breasts, butterflied or pounded thin
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup guacamole
- 8 slices bacon
- Lay the chicken flat, season the outside with salt and pepper, spread 1/4 of the guacamole on each of the chicken breasts, roll them up and wrap each in 2 slices of bacon
- Grill over indirect medium heat, with the lid down, until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked (160F to 165F), about 20-30 minutes, or bake in a preheated 400F/200C oven on a wire rack on a baking pan until cooked, about 20-30 minutes, turning the oven to broil for the last few minutes to ensure that the bacon is crispy.
Option: Replace the salt and pepper with your favourite seasoning blend.
Option: Add flavours to the guacamole like sundried tomatoes or blue cheese, etc.
