Bacon Wrapped Guacamole Stuffed Chicken

We needed a quick dinner recipe and this fit the bill.  I had 2 large ripe avocados that we added cumin, salsa, lime juice and salt and pepper to to make the guacamole.  See our changes/additions in bold.  Very good.

Bacon Wrapped Guacamole Stuffed Chicken

4 (6 ounce) chicken breasts, butterflied or pounded thin
salt and pepper to taste**I used 1 tsp of each Mc Cormick Grill Mates--Montreal Chicken, Roasted Garlic and Herb and Fiery Pepper
1/2 cup guacamole We made our own, but you can use store bought
8 slices bacon

Lay the chicken flat, season the outside with salt and pepper, spread 1/4 of the guacamole on each of the chicken breasts, roll them up and wrap each in 2 slices of bacon

Grill over indirect medium heat, with the lid down, until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked (160F to 165F), about 20-30 minutes, or bake in a preheated 400F/200C oven on a wire rack on a baking pan until cooked, about 20-30 minutes, turning the oven to broil for the last few minutes to ensure that the bacon is crispy.

Option: Replace the salt and pepper with your favorite seasoning blend.
Option: Add flavours to the guacamole like sundried tomatoes or blue cheese, etc.
