  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In 8-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, mushrooms and thyme; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Set aside.
  • 2
    Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix mushroom mixture and Gruyère cheese until well blended. Place heaping 1/4 cup mushroom mixture on center of each chicken breast. Roll chicken over filling, tucking ends to enclose filling; secure with toothpick, if necessary. Carefully wrap each chicken breast with 3 bacon slices. Place in ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) baking dish.
  • 4
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

Expert Tips

Substitute Swiss cheese for the Gruyère cheese.

Another easy way to flatten chicken breasts is to place one at a time in a freezer plastic storage bag, not sealed, before pounding.
