  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place spinach in a large glass bowl, and heat in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every minute or so, or until wilted. Stir in sour cream, pepperjack cheese, and garlic.
  3. Lay the chicken breasts out on a clean surface, and spoon some of the spinach mixture onto each one. Roll up chicken to enclose the spinach, then wrap each chicken breast with two slices of bacon. Secure with toothpicks, and arrange in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Bake uncovered for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, then increase heat to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C), or use the oven's broiler to cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes to brown the bacon.

Awesomeeeeeeeeeeee dish. Looked like it was from a Gourmet Magazine. We did marinate the chicken in a buttermilk marinade, as a previous user suggested. The bacon turned out great, and we added ...

After reading all the reviews I simplified the recipe slightly by using about half of a 10 oz. frozen package of spinach (well drained), cut the garlic down by half and added a bit more cheese. ...

okay...so the "don't tamper with the recipe" people aren't going to be so happy, but I absolutely loved this recipes but I made a lot of changes. I added feta and parmesan to the cheese mixture...

This was very good....I half cooked the bacon. In the grease, I sauteed the spinach, tomato, and garlic. I patted some of the grease out as suggested by another reviewer. I used about a half ...
