Instructions

  1. Cook Red Leaf lettuce until tender, cool and chop. Then drain water and put in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl or same one, beat 1 raw egg, 2 chopped/sliced green onions and add chopped lettuce.
  3. Slice chicken breast thin and paste on the egg mix, not putting too much or it will spill over.
  4. Add cheese to the center. I used sharp cheddar.
  5. Slowly roll the chicken breast and wrap with 1 uncooked turkey bacon strip. You can use pork bacon.
  6. Using another turkey bacon strip, wrap the other end, making a little package and poke a toothpick through each one to hold bacon in place.
  7. You can use an oven. I put mine in a frying pan on medium heat, placed them all in over 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cooked for about 15 minutes on each side.
  8. When done, serve over white rice, mashed potatoes or salads. These taste great hot or cold. NOTE: When serving, do not forget to remove the toothpick.

    It is absolutely addicting. And the Turkey Bacon keeps the oils out, so it's healthier. It's really good cold too.

    Alright. that spinach versus lettuce dilema is great. If I want it a bit crunchy to the lettuce spine is on option. But for this dish, the deep real taste of spinach is the only choice.

    Thank you! I actually thought about tomatoes. I usually use spinach, improvised with lettuce and was surprised how good it came out. Also, turkey bacon is the only bacon I use.

    I wish they had more buttons to push when I pushed up. The turkey bacon touch is awesome. I must admit, about thoughts of some tomato and more egg, benedict style.

    But I do not want to detract from the fact that this is a perfect dish. Merci Beaucoup
