Ingredients

  • 3 Large Portabello Mushroom Caps rinsed and stems removed
  • 1 Large Vidalia Onion sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3-4 Cloves Garlic peeled and minced
  • Coarse Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 8 Ounces Goat Cheese
  • 12-16 Strips Hardwood Smoked Bacon 3-4 per Breast
  • 12-16 Wooden Toothpicks soaked in water for 20 minutes before using

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to medium high, ensuring the grates are clean and well-oiled.
  • Put the portobello mushrooms and onions in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Add the minced garlic to the mushrooms and onions, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper and tossing to coat evenly.
  • Lay the seasoned mushrooms, stem-side up, and onions on the grill, grilling each 4-6 minutes per side.
  • Remove both from the grill, chop roughly and splash with balsamic vinegar. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Cut into the side of the chicken, creating a deep pocket inside the breast, with caution to not pierce through or butterfly the meat.
  • Gently, but liberally, stuff the chicken with cheese, followed by grilled veggies.
  • Lay 3-4 bacon strips per breast on a cutting board, one next to another with no spaces.
  • Place the stuffed breasts over the bacon strips, tightly rolling and wrapping the chicken.
  • Insert water-soaked toothpicks through bacon, securing the wrapping.
  • Grill for 15-20 minutes over indirect heat, rotating every 5-7 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp and the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees.
  • Pull the chicken from the grill, set on a cutting board, tent with foil and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes.
  • Plate, serve and ENJOY!

Notes

You may want to render the fat from bacon in advance of grilling to decrease the likelihood of flare-ups and burned chicken. Simply fry the bacon on the stove until it renders its grease but while it's still pliable enough to wrap around the chicken. Recommendation: If using a charcoal grill, slant the coals to one side and cook the chicken indirectly on the cooler portion of the grill (you may need to adjust cooking times accordingly).
