I spent some time this weekend in the garden cleaning up for winter.  The weather was gloriously cool and sunny.  Even though the tomato and pepper plants are gone, the herbs are still going strong.
I’m always keeping an eye out for a nugget of inspiration to create a new recipe, whether it’s from a local restaurant, an old family favorite, friends or my garden.
This recipe inspiration came straight from the garden and my beautiful sage plants.   I was admiring how well they have done this year, in pots vs. being planted directly in the garden and thinking about when to bring them indoors to overwinter.  Which made me think of the holidays, then the holiday recipes, then eating those holiday recipes and well… I was hungry.
I thought it would be a brilliant idea to incorporate some garden sage into dinner, using the chicken I had in the fridge .  Then I thought  I needed to add some melty cheese.  And some bacon.

This recipe is quite simple, a bit of pounding on the chicken breasts, and then layering your ingredients, wrapping it all up into a pretty little package, tied up with a bow {butchers twine} and a quick sear in a hot pan.  Served along side a salad you have the perfect healthy quick weeknight dinner.

    This chicken looks easy and great for a busy weeknight. My mom used to make something similar when I was a kid, but I haven’t thought of it in years. Looks great!
