  • preheat oven to 375 degrees f (190 degrees c). spray an 8x8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • using a sharp knife, cut a slit into the thick side of each chicken breast about 2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches deep.
  • mash together the gorgonzola cheese, parsley, shallot, and garlic in a small bowl; season with salt and black pepper. divide the filling in half, and stuff each chicken breast with cheese filling. wrap 2 slices of bacon around each breast, and secure with wooden toothpicks. place the chicken breasts into the prepared baking dish.
