Chicken

  • 1 pinch kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning chicken pre-grilling
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning chicken pre-grilling
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus added oil for brushing chicken pre-grilling
  • butcher’s twine (for tying rolled chicken)
  • Signature SELECT® aluminum foil (optional for grilling)

Hickory Bacon Compound Butter

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 slices Signature Farms® hickory bacon, cooked, cooled and minced
  • 1/2 cup thinly-sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

To prepare hickory bacon compound butter, combine the cooked, minced bacon and the unsalted butter together, mix well and chill.

Step 2

Heat a medium-size sauté pan, add oil, shallots and mushrooms, then season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 2 minutes, then set aside and allow to cool.

Step 3

Butterfly chicken breast, opening it up into 2-3 folds. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Divide butter between the butterflied breast, then add sautéed mushrooms. Fold and tie with butcher’s twine.

Step 5

Brush roll-tied chicken breast with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Heat grill to medium-high and spray grates with non-stick spray (or brush with oil).

Step 7

Place stuffed chicken breast on hot grill. Grill for 1 ½ minutes, pick up and turn 90 degrees to create grill cross marks. Grill chicken breast for another 1½ minutes, turn over and then cover grill. Cook covered for an additional 10-12 minutes.

Step 8

Remove from grill and allow to rest 4-5 minutes, remove twine and serve.

Step 9 :: Pro Tip

If the twine is becoming charred, place chicken breast on sheet of aluminum foil and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 165°.

All recipe ingredients should be cooked to a safe internal temperature according to USDA guidelines. After preparing a recipe, please store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
