whoo-hoo chicken

6 chicken breasts
1 cup of ranch dressing
2 cups of Pepperidge Farms stuffing (I substituted Panko crumbs)
6 slices of bacon

Preheat oven to 375.

Marinate chicken breasts in ranch dressing.  Dip the ranch coated chicken breasts in the stuffing mixture and cover completely.  Arrange the chicken in a glass-baking dish.  Top each chicken breast with one slice of uncooked bacon.

Bake for 45 minutes.

My friend, Amber Wooten, and I spent a week together with our children at my sister-in-laws beach house in Duck, NC.  We split the task of preparing meals by having each of us cook dinner for everyone (5 kids and 2 adults) every other day.  The goal was for fast, easy, and relatively healthy meals that everyone would enjoy eating.  Amber’s chicken recipe has since become an easy go-to dish in my household.   You too will cheer “whoo-hoo” when the picky eaters in your family ask for more!
