  • 4

    medium chicken breast halves

  • ¾

    cup shredded mozzarella

  • ½

    cup crumbled feta

  • ¼

    cup chopped peanuts

  • 2

    slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled, or ¼ cup cooked bacon pieces

  • Salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • Paprika

  • Bottled Ranch salad dressing


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Skin chicken, if desired. Using a sharp knife, make a pocket in each breast by cutting horizonally 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. Bake, uncovered, for 50-55 min or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the chicken registers 170 degrees. Drizzle salad dressing over chicken before serving.
