Season chicken breasts with sea salt and ground pepper.

Carefully slit a pocket into the side of each breast. Make sure to not go all the way through.

Take a heaping spoonful of the guacamole and pack it into the pocket it’s okay if a little oozes out.

Wrap each breast with two strips of bacon, making sure the ends of the bacon all end up on the same side of the chicken.

Heat oil in a pan over med-high heat.

Cook the chicken for two to three minutes on each side. Start with your bacon ends side down fist.
