Cooking Instructions

Freeze For Later Cooking Day Directions

Stovetop

These directions help you cook or prepare this meal PRIOR to being frozen for serving later (see Serving Day Directions when you are ready to prepare it to eat).

Why would I want to freeze this?

  1. Cook bacon on stovetop for 2-3 minutes, where it's partially cooked through but still able to be rolled up.
  2. Arrange chicken breasts on a clean work surface. Using a mallet, pound chicken to 1/4 inch thickness.
  3. Place a slice of bacon on each each breast. Divide spinach and garlic evenly over the top of bacon and chicken.
  4. Begin to roll chicken tightly, ensuring all stuffing is kept inside.
  5. Wrap rolled chicken in plastic wrap.
  6. Divide plastic wrapped pinwheels between indicated number of gallon freezer bags. Label and freeze.

  1. This recipe looks delicious AND it fits the paleo autoimmune protocol (a rare thing). So, thank you! I host a weekly Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable through my blog, and I would love it if you linked up this recipe. Iโ€™m trying to expand resources for the AIP community. Hereโ€™s the link: http://www.phoenixhelix.com/20

  2. Delicious. One suggestion – I didn’t realize until I was mid-cooking that fresh spinach was intended. The chopped spinach I was using (frozen) just fell out of the pinwheels. Maybe add ‘fresh’ to the ingredient list for future recipe users?
