This is a healthy version of a recipe I've modified. It's to die for!!!! If you love flavor, you'll LOVE this!

  • 8 oz. cottage cheese, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, mild, raw, organic
  • 2 chili pepper, jalapeno, fresh, organic
  • 4 turkey bacon, nitrate-free organic
  • 4 chicken breast, skinless, organic, free-range

  1. Cook the turkey bacon in a skillet, let cool and then dice

  2. Stir together the cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapenos in a small bowl.

  3. Cut a pocket horizontally through the thickest side of each chicken breast, and fill with 1/4 of the cheese mixture.

  4. Place on george forman grill (seam side towards the incline of the grill) for about 5 mins (or more for golden color). If your chicken breasts are thick, they can be finished in a 350-degree oven.

If you don't have a george forman grill you can use coconut oil in a pan on the stove to cook about 8 mins on each side. Make sure to seal the pocket with toothpicks so the stuffing doesn't come out.
