  1. Cook bacon until crisp. I prefer to use an indoor grill. Bacon can also be cooked in a skillet over medium-high heat, or the microwave at about 1 minute per slice. Drain on paper towels, and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the spinach and blue cheese. Crumble in the bacon, and stir to distribute.
  3. Lay the chicken breast halves out on a clean surface, and distribute the spinach mixture evenly onto the centers of them. Fold the chicken over the filling, and secure with toothpicks. Stir together the flour, salt and pepper on a dinner plate. Roll the chicken in the flour to coat.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Quickly brown each piece of chicken on top and bottom. Remove to a lightly greased baking dish, and cover with a lid or aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken juices run clear, and filling is hot.

Really delicious--if you like blue cheese. My husband calls this one a keeper. Instead of browning on the stove, I simply breaded these in breadcrumbs and crushed nuts and baked them. You can pr...

You know, I was actually going to make up a recipe for spinach and blue cheese stuffed chicken breasts, but came here first to see if there was a reicpe for what I had in mind. This is almost i...

This recipe is SO good. One of my faves, and now I have it memorized. The only change I made was to add minced garlic and chopped onions. Everyone that has had it, loves it!

I prepared this with my own twists on the recipe, mainly to accomodate the tastes of my blue cheese detesting husband--though I'm sure I would have rated it equally just as written. Just eyeball...

These are very tasty. I don't like Blue Cheese, so I used fetta instead. I also added a little nutmeg to the spinach. (The flavouours go really well together. I stole this idea from my Lasagna r...

I can't say enough about this meal...it ranks high on my list of "best things I've ever cooked!" I didn't measure the cheeses...I just used however much I preferred, and I used freshly chopped b...

This was really good, although I made a few adjustments. First, I sauteed fresh spinach with a crushed garlic clove in some olive oil. The cheese I used was one that I found in the gourmet chees...

Loved it! We browned the chicken before putting in the filling and it worked great. Also agree with the other folks about using half blue cheese and half feta...tastes great but not too overpo...

I made this the other night. It was delicious. My boyfriend who declares that "no recipe deserves 5 stars, there's always room to improve" gave it 5 stars! Next time I think I will use fres...
