Fall weather is officially here. We were down in the 40s for the high for most of last week with an on and off rain almost everyday- which we desperately needed. These cooler and colder days have me wanting to bake constantly. It helps warm up the house and makes it smell wonderfully.

This Stuffed Chipotle Bacon Chicken was HUGE hit at my home. My husband couldn’t stop talking about it and after every bite he gave some new compliment in regards to its flavor.

It does have a kick of heat, but don’t be discouraged by that because the creamy sauce helps cool it down while complimenting the delicious flavor. My six year old said, “This is a little spicy but it’s so good!” When he gives the stamp of approval, you know you’ve got a winning recipe. He is so picky so I was so happy he loved it as much as he did!

If you are looking to bring the taste of a 5 star quality restaurant to your home, this is the meal to do it with! It is absolutely fantastic!
