A savory and juicy chicken breast stuffed with tomatoes, bacon, lettuce and mayo. This chicken breast will give you all the feels of a real BLT without the bread. This dish is Wholoe30, Keto and Paleo friendly.

I am a southern girl by heart and love anything and everything involving bacon….like I flipping LOVE IT. As a kid, my favorite thing to eat was a juicy and fresh BLT….with white bread of course. Instead of totally giving up my beloved bacon sandwich, I have recreated this beauty in a compliant and healthy way. This BLT Stuffed Chicken Breast will make you forget the bread. It’s so tasty and filling and should totally be incorporated into your weekly or monthly meal plan. Whole30, Keto and Paleo compliant.

Ingredients needed. Chicken breast, bacon, lettuce, avocado, mayo, tomatoes and bacon.

Ingredients for this BLT Stuffed Chicken Breast

  • Chicken breasts
  • Bacon (no sugar added)
  • Olive oil (for cooking chicken)
  • Salt/pepper to taste
  • Garlic powder
  • Lettuce leaves of choice (washed)
  • Tomato (thinly sliced)
  • Mayo
Ingredients needed. Chicken breast, bacon, lettuce, avocado, mayo, tomatoes and bacon.

How to make:

Heat your cast iron with olive oil, olive oil over medium heat and preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Add in your chicken breast and season with a little pepper and garlic powder and cook evenly on each side. Around 6 minutes on each side. (time will vary depending on thickness of chicken).
While the chicken is cooking, add 4 slices of bacon to a baking sheet and put in the oven and cook for 15 minutes on 425F.

Slice the tomatoes and clean your arugula and spinach. Once the chicken is cooked (5-6 minutes on each side) evenly on both sides, add them to your cutting board to cool. Place the bacon on a paper towel and blot any remaining oil off. Once chicken breast has cooled a bit, slice each chicken breast horizontally, not all the way through, but cut ¾ way through the chicken. Add the mayo inside each chicken breast, then the lettuce, tomatoes and the best part….BACON

How to cook chicken so it’s juicy and tender:

Through experience, I have found that searing chicken breasts in a cast iron skillet and transferring to the oven for the last 5 minutes is the best way to achieve a juicy and tender chicken breast.

First, add 2 teaspoons of avocado oil to the pan, wait 30 seconds so the oil can heat up, and then place the boneless chicken breast in the pan and don’t touch it for 2 minutes. You need to leave the chicken breast alone so the crust can form. After 2 minutes, flip the chicken and let it cook another 2 minutes depending on how thick it is. Transfer the chicken in the cast iron skillet to a 425F degree oven for 5 minutes or until internal temperature is 165F.

What is the best mayo to use for this BLT Stuffed Chicken Breast?

I have to be completely honest, I am not a fan of any of the store bought mayo that is Whole30 compliant. I always have loved Hellman’s Mayo, but that of course is not a compliant mayo for the program. In my opinion, my Whole30 60 Second Homemade Mayo is better than any store bought version, seriously. It tastes so good you won’t believe it’s homemade. A lot of people get intimated when thinking about making their own mayo, but it’s so simple and quick.

This beautiful dish is Whole30Paleo and Clean Eating compliant. Putting a spin on unhealthy dishes is my passion. I love bringing them to life in a healthy way. This proves that healthy living doesn’t have to be boring and can be totally satisfying by recreating dishes that you love in new and healthy ways.

    THIS IS SO DELICIOUS!! I ate it just like a sandwich. Its on rotation for our weekly meal plan now. 🙌

  2. Lindsey says:

    This recipe is so creative and delicious! I am always looking for ways to “lighten” up my meals. My husband tends to enjoy his meals loaded with carbs, fats, and grease so this recipe provides the best of both worlds for us. I am able to keep mine light by substituting the bread for chicken and still allow my husband to enjoy his on a large brioche roll. This recipe is so delicious that I have passed it along to my coworkers who have also fallen in love with it. The trick is to not overstuff your “sandwich” and it won’t be as messy. One of my coworkers wraps theirs in wax paper to hold theirs together while they eat. Once again, Ashley makes an amazing recipe that my family looks forward to each time its on our menu! Thank you!

    Super delish, great idea! Yum!!!!

  4. Denise Granucci says:

    Just made this last night and OMG to die for. My whole family loved it (even picky kids) and it was easily customizable. My husband and I subbed out the Mayo with The Organic Almond Dip’s Chipotle Bitchin’ Sauce to add a little kick. Definitely a new favorite to throw in the rotation, especially on those hot summer nights.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

✨Pickle Boats✨
2 @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouches
2 tablespoons mayo
2 tablespoons red onion chopped
salt/pepper
2 large pickles, sliced lengthwise 

Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds to create boats. Mix the tuna together with the mayo and red onions. Fill each pickle with the tuna.

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
