Broccoli Cheddar Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I don't like chicken. There. I said it. I find it boring, flavourless and annoying to cook. However...it is easy on the pocketbook, high in protein and low in fat. So i eat it. But not before adding fat back into it and yummy flavours to make it much better tasting!
1 Cup Chopped Broccoli
5 Chicken Breasts
1/4 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
5 Strips of Bacon, cooked and chopped
2 Eggs
3/4 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/2 Tsp Parsley Flakes
Salt & Pepper
Chop up your broccoli into small florets

Add the grated cheddar

And add the bacon. Mix this all together and set aside.

Using a very sharp knife fillet your chicken breasts (Or you can use a meat mallet and pound the chicken into thin fillets)

Grab a small handful of the broccoli filling and roll it into the chicken. Use toothpicks to hold the roll closed (or you can use less filling...but I like a lot of filling)

Beat 2 eggs into one bowl and mix together the panko, parsley and salt & pepper (to your taste) in another.

Carefully roll the chicken in the egg first and the Panko second.

Place in a greased baking dish and bake at 350F for about 15-20 Minutes then throw the broiler on and finish cooking the chicken on broil for about 5-10 minutes or until the bread crumbs are nice and brown and toasty.

Slice and serve!
