Prepare Chicken Breast for Stuffing. Use paring knife to cut a slot in breast the length of the breast stopping short of the ends and do not go all the way through. Turn knife parallel to table and perpendicular to chicken, cut a slot in the sides of the fist slot on both sides creating a pocket for stuffing.

Add Mrs. Dash Seasoning, Parmesan Cheese, Bacon Bits and Stuffing to previously prepared ingredients in mixing bowl and stir together. Add the least amount of chicken bouillon water needed to moisten the stuffing. The stuffing needs to remain fluffy. Divide the stuffing into quarters and lightly pack the stuffing into the open pockets of the chicken breast. Light spray the Stuffed Chicken Breast with Olive Oil and lightly dust the breast with Salt, Pepper and Paprika.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
