Bacon Wrapped Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

Dinner for 2 (Double this if hes a big eater like someone I know : ).

2 nice size chicken breast
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 white onion, diced
1 large handful spinach (want more, add it, less...)
1/2 brick cream cheese (4 ounces)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1 tablespoon Greek seasoning, such as (Cavender's)
4 slices of Bacon

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Wash chicken breast and make a slit or lengthwise pocket in the thickest side. Set aside.
In a skillet on medium,  heat 2 teaspoons olive oil.  Add diced onion and cook until just tender,  Stir in a very large handful of spinach from the bag.  Cook just to wilt and remove.
In a microwavable bowl, add 1/2 brick of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella. Microwave for 1 minute. Mix 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning into the softened cheese. Stir well. Add the content of the skillet, spinach and onions and combine.
Stuff the slits in the chicken full and wrap 2 slices of bacon criss-cross around each.
Place stuffed chicken breast in a baking dish and cook for 45 minutes uncovered or until chicken is cooked through and white when sliced into.
