Ingredients

    1 slice applewood-smoked turkey bacon
    3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    2 tablespoons minced green onions
    2 tablespoons diced pimientos
    1 tablespoon canola mayonnaise
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Cut a 1-inch-wide slit into the thick end of each breast half; carefully cut down to the center of chicken to form a deep pocket. Divide cheese mixture evenly among pockets. Secure with wooden picks. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
Heat pan over medium-high heat. Add oil to drippings. Add chicken to pan; saute 4 minutes. Turn chicken over. Bake at 350░ for 12 minutes; let stand for 5 minutes
