– 8 slices bacon – 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1/4 teaspoon black pepper – 1 teaspoon red pepper flake – 3 small ripe avocado – 4 garlic cloves minced – ½ red onion small diced – 8 slices pepper jack cheese – 2 sheets puff pastry thawed – 1 large egg – 1 tablespoon water – 1 tablespoon Everything bagel seasoning


Heat the oven to 375°F. Crisp bacon, drain, and coarsely crumble; leave aside. Pound chicken pieces to ¼” thickness and season both sides with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.  

Step 1

Mix crumbled bacon, minced garlic, and onion with mashed avocados in a basin. Place 2 cheese slices on the chicken's pointy end. 

Step 2

Spread avocado mixture on cheese. Start with the narrow end and roll the chicken tightly. Place chicken log on plastic wrap and twist ends oppositely. 

Step 3

This tightens the chicken wrap; repeat with remaining ingredients. Refrigerate 10 minutes. Place puff pastry sheets flat on a firm surface.

Unwrap and set the chicken in the center of the puff pastry, then fold it over like a gift. Pinch seams properly to seal. Cut away any excess pastry edges. Some overlap is alright,

Step 6

Pastry with egg wash and everything bagel seasoning. Add chicken packets to a wire-rack baking sheet.  

Step 7

Keeping the pastry bottom from getting mushy and minimizing the mess if chicken stuffing spills after baking. Bake till 165°F and golden brown, 45 minutes. Serve after cooling slowly.
