Spinach & Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Picture Courtesy of the most wonderful Mom in the world! Patti!!!

Update: We made this when my parents came over and it was FANTASTIC! This will become a regular in our house!!!

I haven't tried this recipe yet but it sounds so good! I built it in weightwatchers recipe builder and it says that it makes 8 servings with 4 points per serving. I'm going to make it later this week.

Spinach & Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breast (8 servings/4 WW pts each)
8-4 oz chicken breasts
4 slices precooked bacon, diced
1 cup minced onions
4 minced garlic cloves
1-10 oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 ounce fat-free garlic & onion croutons, crushed (I'm substituting Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing mix)
2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
1 ounce roasted red bell pepper, (in water not oil), drained and chopped
Black Pepper
2 teaspoons butter

In a large skillet, saute bacon, onion, garlic for 2 minutes using cooking spray. Place in a large bowl. Make sure to drain the spinach well! Add the spinach, egg substitute, croutons, rosemary, and bell pepper and mix well. Cut a pocket in the side of each chicken breast and stuff lightly with spinach mixture. You can seal them with a toothpick if needed. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. In the same skillet melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 20 to 25minutes. Turn chicken periodically until completely cooked through.
