Spinach stuffed chicken wrapped in bacon

WP_001186

I like chicken breasts but alone they do not provide enough fat content to keep me satisfied so I came up with this recipe.  This is a chicken breast stuffed with seasoned spinach, pepper jack cheese, and bacon and carefully wrapped with more bacon.  This is easy recipe you can make ahead of time and cook when needed.
