Bacon wrapped stuffed chicken breast

Thanks to my sis-in-law Amy for the inspiration on this one.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breast
3 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 carton fresh mushrooms
1/4 large onion, diced
1 tbs butter
2 slices of cheese per breast(I used American, but I'm sure any kind would be good)
balsamic vinegar, or balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Saute onions and mushrooms in butter until soft. Pound out chicken breast until 1/3 inch think. Place a spoonful of mushrooms/onion mixture in the middle of each breast along with 2 slices of cheese. Roll up the chicken breast and wrap with bacon. Use a toothpick to secure the ends. Place in baking dish and top the chicken rolls with remaining mushrooms/onions. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Baste with balsamic vinaigrette and cook for 5 more minutes. I used balsamic vinegar but it ran off, so the dressing would work better since it contains oil and will adhere better. Either way - this was yummy.

Two thumbs up from the guy who brings home that bacon.

I will try to post many more this weekend to get caught up....well sorta. I have so many in my head I'd like to post here, it is spinning!
