Bacon Wrapped, Cheese & Mushroom Stuffed Chicken

Our Board President, Steve, loves all things bacon.  And there is nothing better for Steve than to shop the Market for the ingredients from our farm stand vendors.  Try a flavored bacon or switch up the cheese.  We’ve got the butter too.  Serve it with a white wine from Glunz Family Winery.
