Place bacon in skillet over low-medium heat and fry until crisp. Cut

saute until tender. Pour over bacon mixture. Pull all sides of the
breast up and over the cheese to form a large ball shape, completely
covering all ingredients in the middle of the chicken. Preheat oil

egg and milk and beat to combine. In small bowl combine flour, salt
and pepper. Dip chicken in egg and milk bath and roll in spiced
flour. Submerge in hot oil and fry 4-6 minutes or until golden brown.
