Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium lime, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • teaspoon pepper

Filling

  • 6 ounces Baby Bella whole mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • teaspoon ground black pepper
  • teaspoon onion powder
  • teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 3 strips thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

Instructions

  • Wash, dry, and butterfly chicken breasts. (To butterfly put your chicken breast on a chopping board and, with your hand flat on top of it, use a sharp knife to slice into one side of the breast, starting at the thicker end and ending at the thin point. Be careful not to cut all the way through to the other side.) Set aside.
  • Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Finely chop each mushroom, discarding the tough ends of stems.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and chopped mushroom to the skillet. Fry until any moisture has disappeared, taking care not to burn the garlic. Set aside to cool.
  • Once cooled, stir cream cheese, bacon, parmesan cheese, black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper together.
  • Open butterflied chicken breasts and scoop 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture into the fold, spread evenly keeping away from the edges of the chicken. (Optional: Secure the fold with a toothpick.)
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.  
  • Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon butter, and 2 tablespoons lime juice to a skillet, cook over medium heat.  Once the oil mixture starts to sizzle, add the chicken to the pan. 
  • Cook each side for 8-10 minutes and then flip. Use the pan juices to baste the chicken during the cooking process. (Note: Cooking time will vary based on the size of the chicken breast. Using a meat thermometer is always recommended. The chicken should be 165 °F when fully cooked.)
  • Serve warm.
