  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then crumble into small pieces.
  2. Mix bacon and feta together in small bowl.
  3. Cut a 2 to 3 inch slit lengthwise in the side of the chicken breast creating a pocket, and fill with mixture. Secure shut with toothpicks.
  4. Place chicken in slow cooker, then add tomatoes and basil.
  5. Cook on High until chicken is no longer pink in the middle, about three hours.

I made this recipe and used chicken thighs but didn't stuff them. I mixed bacon, feta, diced tomatoes, 1 tsp. of dried basis and poured over thighs in slow cooker. Very, very good!!!

This wasn't my favorite. I love the idea, but I felt there was something missing. I do think I will try this again, but I will try different cheese and more seasonings.

Didn't have the chicken thawed out in time to put in the slow cooker, so stuffed them and put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. I only had a can of diced tomatoes with garlic, so used one can of diced tomatoes and sprinkled dried basil over all. The flavor was mainly from the tomatoes, but very tasty. Next time I will double the stuffing and try it in the crockpot.

Made this dish last night, folowed recipe as originally written, didnt substitute anything. Not willing to give this dish a 5, but the flavor was good, sauce very runny, I will make dish again but will add a little salt and maybe add something to thicken up sauce a tad. Besides that, all and all, it was a good meal. Cooked up some angel hair pasta and served with it.

Very delicious! The only things I changed were adding a few pats of butter to brown the boneless chicken breast and then made a balsamic drizzle to use before servings. Yum yum!!

I made Garlic Spinach from here with fresh spinach and proceeded with the recipe adding the cooled spinach to the stuffing. I browned the breasts before stuffing to give them some color and rested the stuffed breasts on top of the diced tomatoes. I served with Lemon Pecan Pilaf and green beans. Served to company and was very well recived! Thanks!

We all loved it. The bacon adds a smokey flavor. I was nervous about my 9 year old not liking it, but she did! I didn't stuff them as I had no time, but I mixed everything up and put it on the chicken and it turned out great. Will definitely make this again. Super easy to make during a busy week.
