Bacon Wrapped Cheddar Chicken Breast

Here's a delicious and moist chicken breast recipe everyone in my house enjoyed!  I used regular cheese and bacon for my family, but lightened it up for mine.  Both came out amazing!  This is a great recipe to add to your families rotation.  Enjoy :)

Ingredients per chicken breast
2-4 strips of sweet red or orange pepper
2 pieces of bacon ( I used turkey bacon)
1 slice sharp cheddar (I used 1 TBSP fat free cheddar)

Preheat oven to 350.
Carefully butterfly chicken breast (cut them open evenly with a sharp knife leaving an uncut seam along the edge so it can lay open).
Season inside and out with sea salt and pepper.
Stuff with cheese and pepper strips making sure you lay them completely inside chicken so there is nothing overhanging.
Fold chicken up and wrap in bacon (you can secure with toothpick if necessary).
Bake for 30 minutes or until you get an internal temp. of 165.  Leave in the oven and set to broil and crisp the bacon for 2 minutes.
