Double pork stuffed chicken

 
 
I'm always trying to find new ways to eat chicken. Since we have been doing a lot of paleo dishes, I decided to try this one and it was amazing.
 
This recipe was very simple and easy to make, so it made preparing dinner very easy with my two little rugrats running around.
 
Nothing like an easy and quick meal to cook for the family. Jack and kids both loved it. My little garbage disposal, Brooklyn ate 1/4 chicken breast and picky Nicholas ate 1/4 chicken breast with ketchup of course. It's so hard for me to get him to eat meat. If he has ketchup though, he'll eat just about anything from chicken to fish. 

This dinner was amazing last night for dinner and taste just as good today when I ate it for lunch.
 
Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts
3/4 pound ground pork
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 package of bacon

    Instructions:
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    In a skillet over medium heat, sauté pork, garlic, parsley and half of spices for 6-8 minutes until pork is just cooked, but still slightly pink.
    Use a knife to butterfly the breasts (slice lengthwise through one side of the breast creating a pocket).
    Open up the breasts and pound briefly with a meat tenderizer to thin the meat out a bit.
    Sprinkle the remaining spices evenly over the inside of the breasts.
    Spoon equal amounts of ground pork on to one side of each breast, then fold the other side over the top.
    Wrap bacon slices snugly around each breast, covering entirely.
    Bake uncovered for 25 minutes, then put under the broiler for 3 minutes to crisp up bacon.
    Can be eaten warm or cold. I decided to serve this with mashed sweet potatoes and blanched broccoli.
