Slow Cooker Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken

As part of my 25 meals in 4 1/2 hours series, one of the meals included as for feta and bacon stuffed chicken. We had this last night and I have to admit, it was amazing! This recipe was adapted and doubled from other ones I found online. This one will make 10 stuffed chicken breasts, enough for two meals for our 6 person family, since the youngest two boys share the largest of the breasts. I served it with baked potatoes that I tossed in the microwave, a fresh salad and some corn.

Ingredients for two frozen meals:


10 chicken breasts
1 container of plain feta cheese
1 package of fresh bacon pieces
1 can chicken broth (optional)

Step 1: Mix together the container of feta and the package of fresh bacon pieces in a bowl. You can also cook your own bacon, but buying the pieces already cut up is so much easier and a little less expensive.

Step 2: Cut a pocket in each chicken breast and stuff with some of the mixture. A little goes a long way and just a tablespoon or two of the mixture is needed. Tie the breast closed with some string if desired. Do not use toothpicks if freezing, since they will go through the bags.

Step 3: Place five breasts each into two freezer bags and squeeze as much of the air out as possible. Mark with the date and cooking instructions. This is enough for two separate meals.

Step 4: Defrost in the fridge the day before you want to cook the breasts. Place 5 breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. You can add a can of chicken broth if you want to help keep them moist, but it is not required. Cook on low for 6 hours.

  1. I loooooooove feta! But, there are lots of other cheeses that work well with bacon and chicken for those who don't like it.

  2. Jennifer and Billie, you could definitely use another type of cheese. Haloumi, Queso Fresco or even mozzarella and ricotta would work well too.

  3. Mmmm! I am adding this to our recipe list once I get over this pregnancy aversion to chicken!! YUM!

  4. This sounds really yummy! I love easy recipes with very few ingredients – I will definitely be trying this. Thanks!

  5. I am definitely trying this! I'm just starting to do freezer meals and I have a question for the more experienced, Is it okay if it is in the slow cooker more than 6 hours? I am gone from 8 to 9pm. Could I do it on warm since it is that long?

  6. Hi Sheika, technically, you could keep it in longer than 6 hours on low, but the meat is likely to get very dry. Your best bet would be to look into a slow cooker that has a timer feature that would perhaps allow you to set a time for it to start that would let it finish right when you get home.
