Spinach Dip

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 ounces frozen spinach chopped, thawed
  • salt to taste

Hasselback Chicken

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 6 strips bacon cooked, drained


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Mix spinach dip ingredients together. Add salt to taste.
  3. Slice the top of each chicken breast.  Make about 6 slits on top of each chicken breast, going 3/4 way down, without cutting it through.
  4. Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish.
  5. Fill the slits with the spinach dip.  You will only use half of the dip.
  6. Slice cooked bacon horizontally into shorter slices.  Slide them into slits.  Or, just place them on top of chicken.  They will pop out anyway when cooking.
  7. Cook at 375 F for 20-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
