BBQ'd Bacon Wrapped Creamy Mustard Chicken

I pulled out a bunch of ingredients sitting in my fridge that needed to be used last night. All I knew was I felt like BBQ'ing and it had to be chicken. What was originally a throw it together meal turned into a creamy, moist and extremely satisfying winner of a meal.
My daughter gave it 100/10!

Note: This meal does not HAVE to be BBQ'd, it was the method I chose, I am sure it will turn out great if you cook it in a pan on low on your stove top.

4 chicken Breasts trimmed of fat
1 packet maple bacon (trimmed of fat) - it will work with normal bacon too but the maple bacon turns this flavor into honey mustard, if you use normal bacon you won't get that effect.
1/3 cup mayonaise
3 tbsps sour cream
4 tbspoons yellow mustard
pinch salt
pinch pepper
3 tbsp Spade L Seasoning (Beef)
approx 1/2 cup grated monterey jack cheese or blend mix.


Place chick inen a zip lock bag or cover with plastic. Place on a chopping board and with a mallet (or anything heavy pound it flat and even. The thinner it is the quicker and more evenly it will cook)
Mix Sour cream, mayonaise, mustard, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Whip it together well until it looks creamy.
One piece of chicken at a time spread a generous amount of mustard mix on the inside of the breast, sprinkle cheese on top of the mustard (just enough to lightly cover it. Layout enough strips to cover the cheese (it doesn't have to be exact).
Starting at on end of the chicken breast firmly roll it up, keeping a good firm grip and tension on it without breaking it. Then use 4 or 5 strips of bacon to wrap around the outside and hold the roll shut by overlapping ends. Using toothpics pin the bacon and chicken in place, tucking in the open ends to keep as many juices in as possible. sprinkle the outside of the roll generously with Spade L Seasoning. Let it sit 5 minutes. The smear a littel more mustard mix over the outside of the chicken. So it looks like the picture while grilling.

Repeat with all chicken.
Heat BBQ up to medium low heat. In order to keep it moist while not burning the bacon cook around 310 for 30 minutes covered so the inside is cooked and not dry. Keep an eye on it and use your judgement. Lower and longer means a more succulent piece of meat.
