We’re 8 days into 2013 and I decided it was about time for a new LLB buffalo sauce recipe!

I already slathered buffalo sauce all over chicken in my Baked BBQ Buffalo Chicken recipe so I knew I had to mix it up this time. I decided instead of putting the buffalo sauce on the chicken, I would put it IN the chicken!

But then what would go on the outside? Bacon of course.

Searing this delectably meaty dish on the stove, then finishing it in the oven gives it perfectly crisp bacon and deliciously juicy chicken!

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp blue cheese dressing
  • 1 tbsp buffalo sauce
  • 1 tsp blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 3 slices bacon

Begin preparing the recipe by combining the cream cheese, buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing and crumbles in a blender or food processor.

Next, slice a chicken breast through the middle and spread the mixture inside.

Fold the chicken breast over the buffalo blue cheese spread.

Now wrap the chicken breast with the bacon and place it into a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Sear for 5 minutes, then flip.

Sear for an additional 5 minutes then place into a 375° oven for 10 minutes. Flip, then cook in the oven for an additional 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp on the outside.

Remove from the oven and place over a bed of mixed greens.

Slice open and dig in!

I prepared this delectable little dish for myself, but the recipe could easily be doubled or quadrupled to serve 2 or 4!
