Easy chicken dinner with only 4 ingredients. Inside, this chicken is stuffed with a mixture of onions sauteed with bacon and BBQ sauce and outside, the chicken is slathered with more BBQ sauce and wrapped in bacon.
Set aside about 8 slices of bacon to wrap the chicken.
Slice onion thinly and chop remaining bacon into small pieces.
Preheat a cooking pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon pieces and cook, stirring often until browns. Lower the heat to medium.
Add onions and cook until onions are fully cooked.
Add 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce, stir, and cook for just a couple more minutes. Take off heat.
Preheat oven to 400 and preheat a cast iron skillet (or a cooking pan that is oven safe) on stove-top, over medium-high heat. Make sure that your skillet is well seasoned and lightly greased. (If using an oven-safe cooking pan, you’ll want to use a couple of tablespoons of oil to grease the pan.)
Lay the chicken breast flat on the cutting board. Carefully, slide the knife (hold it sideways with blade facing away from you) at the top (larger part) of the chicken breast in the center and cut a pocket in the middle. DO NOT slice all the way through the bottom or the sides of the chicken breast. Your ultimate goal is to create a pocket inside the breast with opening at the top. Repeat with all four breasts.
Divide the onion filling among all four chicken breasts.
Rub each chicken breast with some BBQ sauce and salt each stuffed chicken breast.
Wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon, tucking the ends under one of the bacon rings.
Carefully place each chicken breast in the hot skillet. Sear chicken for about 3 minutes on each side. Your goal is to sear the bacon, not to cook the chicken all the way. (Carefully pour off most of the bacon grease.)
Transfer the skillet into pre-heated oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
(Judge cooking time according to the size of the biggest thicken breast.)
