Almond Crusted Stuffed Chicken Breast

I am always looking for new ways to eat chicken.

I recently prepared this recipe on a KOLR-10, Ozarks Live segment.  Perhaps you saw it.
The recipe is really easy to make. 

2 chicken breasts thinned to about 1/4 inch thick (I put each chicken piece in between two pieces of saran wrap and pounded them with my mallet)
1 onion (yellow or white), chopped
1 cup chopped spinach
2 cloves garlic
4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled into smaller pieces
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
coarsely ground almonds (I used my Magic Bullet.)
Toothpicks (to hold the chicken together!)

Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a saucepan and saut√© onions and garlic for about 5 minutes.  Add spinach and bacon pieces, cook a few minutes more until it looks something like this…

Take your thinned out chicken breasts and place them on a cookie sheet. Divide the spinach onion mix and spread onto the chicken. Like this…Except my chicken breast was more flat this this picture.

Roll chicken up and secure with a couple toothpicks. Brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Have  your coarsely ground almonds (I put my whole almonds in the food processor and gave it a couple grinds until they were in small little chunky pieces). Roll your chicken into the almonds and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 30 – 35 minutes.  When it comes out of the oven it will look something like this…
