Cheesy Pimiento Stuffed Chicken

These little stuffed chicken breasts are great for only 4 points +. If you do not like spicy, you can omit the Tabasco.

serves 4 ( 4 points +)

  • 1 slice reduced fat bacon
  • 1/2 c. reduced-fat shredded cheddar
  • 2 T. finely chopped red onion
  • 1 T. diced pimientos
  • 1 T. low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 ( 4 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook bacon in a large oven-proof skillet until crisp, Remove bacon and reserved drippings in pan. Crumble bacon and combine with next 6 ingredients.
Cut a slit into the thick end of each breast half; carefully cut down to the center of the chicken to form a pocket. Divide cheese mixture evenly among chicken. Secure with wooden toothpicks.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
Cook chicken in reserved bacon drippings on one side until browned ( about 3-4 minutes). Turn and place the pan in the oven for 7-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Let stand 5 minutes before removing picks.


  1. I made your Hamburger Steaks with Onion Gravy last night and they were a huge hit! What I don't understand is the points thing. Like it shows on this one, 4 points+, what exactly does that mean?

    1. Hi Shauna,
      I just replied to the points plus question from the hamburger steaks, but in case you didn't see it, Weight Watcher's points system is called points plus. The old program ( a few years ago) used to be based on points. When they changed the program a bit, they changed the points system to points plus. It is just a change in name, so as not to confuse with the old system.


I love hearing from people who visit my blog! Let me know that you stopped by and let me know if you try a recipe!
