    Using a small sharp knife, make a deep slit through the side of each chicken breast, being careful to stop about 1/2 inch from the opposite side.

    Season the outside of the chicken breasts with Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub.

    Spiral wrap each stuffed chicken breast with bacon, completely covering the outside. If necessary, use toothpicks to secure the bacon.
  • 9

    Arrange the chicken breasts directly on the grill grate and cook, turning once or twice, until the bacon is crisp and golden brown and the internal temperature of the chicken breast is 165°F.
