  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Place chicken breasts on a cutting board, and slice 3 slits into each breast, about ¾ of the way, being careful not to cut through the breast.
  • Drizzle oil over breasts and rub into the slits with your fingers. Place onto sheet pan. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the egg, spinach, ricotta, mozzarella and remaining ½ teaspoon of salt.
  • Evenly spoon spinach cheese mixture into each slit of the breasts. Place in the oven and cook for 35-40 minutes or until the internal temperature of each breast at its thickest part is 165 degrees F.
  • Place bacon onto another baking sheet pan and place in the oven to cook until crisp, about 20-25 minutes. Once the bacon is done, allow it to cool so you can handle it and chop into pieces.
  • When the chicken is done, sprinkle the chopped bacon over each breast and serve immediately.
  • Leftovers can be placed in an airtight container and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
