Pancetta and Mushroom-Stuffed Chicken Breast

Honestly, this ulam idea for dinner looks so heavenly! I remember enjoying this dish very much. Making your healthy part of the chicken even healthier but at the same time more decadent! 

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped Mega Prime Whole Mushroom (198g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (170g each)
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp; drain on paper towels.
  2. In the same skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shallot; cook and stir until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Stir in mushrooms; cook until tender, 1-2 minutes. Add 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Spread each with 2 tablespoons pesto; layer with 1 slice pancetta and a fourth of the mushroom mixture. Fold chicken in half, enclosing filling; secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle it with remaining salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer to a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Bake until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°, 30-35 minutes. Discard toothpicks before serving.
