Stuffed Chipotle Bacon Chicken
Author: Nikki
This Stuffed Chipotle Bacon Chicken is a phenomenal meal that tasted like it comes from a 5 star restaurant! It has a kick of heat from the chipotle peppers but is complimented and cooled down with a deliciously creamy sauce. The chicken is wrapped in bacon for an added wonderful flavor.
