Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lay out chicken breasts on a clean work surface and make six slices in the thicker part of each breast.  Each slice should be about half an inch deep, but should not go all the way through the breast. Place one piece of bacon and a cube of butter into each slice. Place the chicken breasts onto a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 170°F.
  3. Remove the chicken and increase oven heat to the broil setting 450-500°F. Divide the cheddar cheese atop each breast and place under broiler for no more than 5 minutes, or until cheese melts. 
  4. Mix the cream cheese and sour cream together and place a dollop on top of each chicken breasts.  
  5. Make salad by mixing the spinach and arugula mix, cranberries, and red grapes.  Mix together the lemon juice and olive oil and dress the salad.  Place salad on top of the prepared chicken breasts.
