Cheddar and Pepper Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Built in veggies!
Long name, but it's delicious and deceptively easy to make!

4 chicken breasts
1/4 cup Italian dressing
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
About 6 strips bacon
Salt and pepper to taste

Marinate the chicken in the Italian dressing overnight (or at least two hours). Preheat the oven to 350F. Butterfly cut the chicken (cut in half but not all the way through). Season the inside of the chicken with salt and pepper. Lay pepper strips flat on chicken then cover with cheese. Fold chicken over and wrap with a piece of bacon or two. Secure with toothpicks if needed. Bake for thirty minutes or until cooked through. For the last two to five minutes, set the oven on broil to make the bacon crisp. Serve immediately.
