Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy



  • 4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Black pepper
  • 4 to 5 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • A handful arugula leaves from bulk bins, chopped
  • A handful baby spinach leaves from bulk bins, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 pounds baby potatoes, halved
  • Salt
  • 1 pound thin green beans
  • 2 vine tomatoes, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced
  • Leaves from 4 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped, whites and greens
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Using a small sharp knife cut into the thick end of the chicken and make an incision reaching 2/3 the way down the breast. Loosen up the incision with your fingers to make a hole. Season the chicken with pepper. Combine the cheese with arugula and baby spinach and stuff the breasts. Spiral-wrap the breasts with the bacon tightly to cover the meat evenly. Place chicken on a nonstick baking sheet and roast 20 to 22 minutes until bacon is crispy and chicken is firm.

  • Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, season water with salt and cook potatoes 15 minutes, or until tender.

  • Bring 1-inch water to a boil. Trim beans. Salt water and add beans to water. Simmer 5 minutes, drain and combine with tomatoes, thyme, 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper.

  • Place the potatoes back in the hot pot after draining. Coat the potatoes with 2 tablespoons oil, the scallions, chicken stock and salt and pepper. Toss for 1 minute.

  • Serve chicken with green beans and potatoes alongside.

This was SO delicious, a favorite of my husbands. Though I followed the advice of some of the other members here and used two pieces of bacon per breast, and also pre seasoned my chicken with salt pepper and garlic powder and cooked it just a few minutes each side under the broiler.. But it came out fabulous!!! See All Reviews Post Review
