Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

A Facebook inspired recipe does it again! There are kazillions of recipes being posted from wall to wall on Facebook. I drool over them just like you do. But, just like you, I can’t cook or bake or EAT everything out there. Today, we’re going to be cooking Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast! This is a MUST TRY recipe for any bacon lover.

Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

Occasionally I stop, read a recipe and then print it out. I am not certain if all the stars aligned or what, but this recipe either looks exceptionally appealing or I’m just hungry at that moment. Maybe a little bit of all three.

The headline to this recipe read: “I AM IN LOW CARB HEAVEN WITH THIS ONE!”

Here is the short list of ingredients to make the best Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast:

  1. Chicken breast – always, well usually, in my freezer
  2. Cream cheese – got it
  3. Chopped green onion – just happen to have some that needs to be used
  4. Hot pepper jack cheese – let’s give it a small kick
  5. Bacon – always available from the freezer
Place chicken in Ziplock bag and then pound to 1/4" thickness

One pound of chicken breast is either one large breast with a thin film-holding each half together or an already cut breast that yields two halves. When each half is cut in half you will have four 4 ounce pieces, which is a very nice serving size when wrapped in bacon.

We, the Chief, my sous-chef dish-washing mom and I, LOVE stuffed chicken breast. Enuf said.

This recipe – What a surprise!! My new favorite stuffed chicken breast. If the cream cheese and pepper jack don’t do it for you, the bacon will put this over the top! The chicken stays very moist as it cooks and the pepper jack cheese will melt and the cream cheese will keep a little form. (If you can’t buy pepper jack where you live, any favorite meltable cheese works.) The bacon – well it crisps up beautifully. I turned these over and broiled the bottoms to crisp the bacon a little more.

Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

Yield: 4 large servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

An easy, but elegant main dish! The chicken is moist, the flavor superb and the bacon a perfect wrapping!


  • 1 lb. Boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 4 - 4-ounce pieces
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Pepperjack cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
  • 4 to 8 pieces of bacon


Cut chicken into 4 equal size pieces. Pound breast so it is about 1/4" thick.

Mix together softened cream cheese, chopped green onion, and pepper jack cheese. Put 1/4 of this mixture into the middle of each piece of chicken.

Starting at the long side, roll chicken breast up, keeping the cheese mixture to the middle.

Wrap 1 to 2 slices of bacon around the chicken breast, secure with a toothpick, if needed.

Place on baking sheet (with an edge on it) or a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.

Broil topside for about 5 minutes to fully brown and crisp bacon. Turn each breast over and broil for another 3 minutes or so to crisp up the bottom side.

Serve immediately.


* One piece of bacon wrapped around each breast is enough. But 2 pieces of bacon for each breast fully wraps the chicken and is outstanding as well.

* 1 lb. of chicken usually equals one large chicken breast cut in half. Cut each half in half again and you will have four 4 ounce pieces.

* This recipe is very adaptable to being basted with your favorite grilling sauce, marinade, chili sauce, or sweet and sour sauce during baking.

  1. Hi! With this recipe, is it possible to prepare the dish with the raw chicken, cheeses and stuff, cover it up and place it in the fridge for a few hours before cooking it? So that it’s easy for having guests over and so forth

  2. Mozzarella and a dash of crushed red pepper works great if your after a dish that has a bit more richness(oily goodyness)with the same zing as pepperjack. Peperoni or any dark salami inside the cream/cheese mixture brings this up another level of flavor variety. Overall a great recipe

  3. I just made this recipe for the 10th time or so and ended up needing a substitute for the pepper jack. I used gouda, and I think the buttery taste made it even better!
    Thank you for sharing

      • Update: pineapple on the inside with the filling, great idea, and I used Maple Bacon which gave it a sweet and savory taste as well. Big hit all 3 of my kids kept asking for more! They are 5, 4 and 16 months. This was a huge hit and super quick to make!

      • High Broil. I also watch like to watch it at the end to get that perfect bacon crisp. Sometimes it isn’t the full eight minutes depending on bacon thickness and where my rack is set.

  4. I made this yesterday for supper… I’m not a huge fan of chicken, but I had to try this recipe… I did as the recipe says. What I also did was basted it with Sweet Chilli sauce, ground pepper and garlic… I think this recipe is awesome… Thank you for sharing…

  5. My husband doesn’t like chicken at all. I’ve found that most chicken recipes also work good with boneless pork chops. I do that substitution all the time.

  6. I think the sweet chili sauce is an awesome idea with that bacon. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better … it did. I am making these this weekend! Thank you for sharing

  7. Just one word for you. It’s wonderful. I can’t wait to try this. I don’t think BF would care for the cream cheese filling, & neither of us are pepperjack fans, so I will make it w/ shredded cheddar cheese & maybe add some chives. Thanks for sharing!

  8. The recipe was good but very problematic. Pounding out the chicken was less than easy. It kept getting stringy and breaking apart even with light pounding. In the baking process, the filling all melts out and ends up all over the pan. I’m sure a top notch cook wouldn’t have the problems I had with it.

    • Hi Robert, thanks for your comments. I have found not all chicken breasts are created equal. I have had some chicken fall apart on me in the past also. I have learned to make sure I get a full breast piece to start with (cut in half) without thinner meat around the sides. As for the melting “out” of the cheese – you are right, and securing the ends with a toothpick helps! When I wrote the first blog post with this recipe I didn’t include all the tips and tricks, but have added them as others make the recipe. I hope you will try it again. The flavors are stellar. Thanks for taking time to comment.

  9. What a delicious meal!! I served these tonight with steamed green beans and we were so happy with the meal 🙂 We aren’t pepper jack fans so I substituted Swiss cheese and wow… absolutely delicious and a hit with all of us! I’ll definitely be making this again and trying some other things with it. But the recipe as is turned out perfectly cooked chicken, nicely crisped bacon and a delicious filling. Thank you for sharing!

  10. Mozzarella and a dash of crushed red pepper works great if your after a dish that has a bit more richness(oily goodyness)with the same zing as pepperjack. Peperoni or any dark salami inside the cream/cheese mixture brings this up another level of flavor variety. Overall a great recipe

  11. I just made this recipe for the 10th time or so and ended up needing a substitute for the pepper jack. I used gouda, and I think the buttery taste made it even better!

    • Excellent as a leftover heated up! How we make it might be a little rich for a salad, but we do love ranch of lettuce!

  12. Just fabulous!! I was fortunate enough to get thin sliced chicken breasts which saved on time. Had six pieces that worked perfectly!!

  13. I tried this but should change instructions above from “baking sheet” to baking dish. Baking dish definitely needs edges to hold in the liquids. I also baked longer than 30 minutes. I baked 45 and the broiled for 5, flipped roll and broiled the other side for 5 minutes. Instead of pepper cheese I used butter and cream cheese. Very good! You can also make ahead, refrigerate, and fix later.

    • Amanda, I am so sorry this is delayed in my response. A broiler is fitted into most ovens either at the top of the oven or sometimes in a gas stove/oven underneath the actual oven. A broiler coil turns very hot very fast and will brown or cook food quickly. I hope this helps!

    • There is a broil setting on your oven. Read your time correctly or keep an eye on it because it is your highest heat setting in your oven.

  14. Great recipe…just had it again…2nd time in 2 weeks! Husband doesn’t really like chicken, but added some roasted fake jalapeño peppers and they really made the recipe pop!

  15. These are cooking right now and my house smells heavenly! I wish I had read the comments before I began making this. Then on the other hand, I’m thinking that I will make this over and over again! So, to change, adjust, or alter this will have to wait until the next time I make it. Marvelous ideas and suggestions! I can’t wait to taste this and I can’t wait to try the suggestions in the comments section. The boneless pork chop idea sounds great!
    Thank you for such a great recipe!

  16. Here are some suggestions for an already delicious meal…I add a slice of ham to wrap the cheese mixture, but I seal it to prevent the cheese from leaking out while cooking. I also wrap the bacon (2 pieces) perpendicular to one another, which also secures the cheese. If you have to use toothpicks, do not push through to the center, or you risk the cheese leaking out. I hope you enjoy!

    • Thank you Katie! Just this summer I tried wrapping the bacon perpendicular to one another and it worked great! I just hadn’t gotten the recipe updated! Thank you very much! Your additions sound wonderful.

  17. This has quickly become a favorite in this household! We call em armadillo eggs! I just seriously have to use the thick cut bacon to make sure the cheese stays in the middle. It’s so sad when it doesn’t! Easily the best dish I’ve ever made.

    • Amanda, recently I helped my son, Chris, and his family make 40 servings for our family reunion. Chris was in charge of wrapping the bacon. He wrapped one piece end to end and the other piece around the middle. It totally helped secure “in” the cheese!

  18. When I’ve tried this in the past, the cream cheese always melts out all over the pan. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Hi Stacy, No I don’t think you are doing anything wrong. I have a little cheese come out as well and it cooks and crisps up around the chicken. It is so good that we leave it and eat it! But – I also try to tuck the ends closed as much as possible and even toothpick if need be. Also, “fat free cream cheese” does not work at all – it just turns to liquid. I hope this helps!

  19. Hi, I’m making this right now. It’s the first time I’ve stuffed chicken. Do you have any kind of overview of stuffed chicken?

    What I mean is, a big list of things that can be mixed to make the stuffing, a list of things to cover the stuffed chicken, and things to drizzle over it, list of Condiments or garnishes to serve alongside?

    • Hi Misty, no actually I don’t think I have ever put that all in one place. But it is a good idea. If you scroll through the comments from this recipe you will find lots of ideas that others have used. Thanks for stopping by and the good suggestion!

      • Thanks for your response Catherine 🙂 when I look online for a recipe, too many ingredients scare me off, but then I like to understand the “principles” of the dish and all the possible combinations. That way, I can take it from there.

        I followed this recipe exactly last night, and thought it was perfect as is. My boyfriend thought so too!

        Yup, I’m going through the comments for variations.

        BTW, I love your blog!

  20. My husband could not stop ranting and raving about this recipe! It was quite the hit. I had some left over dried beef that needed used up, so I included that in the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and green onion filling. What a delicious addition! I also whipped up some homemade BBQ sauce to glaze over the top of each piece when finished cooking. This made this meal a smashing hit!

  21. I can’t wait to try this. I don’t think BF would care for the cream cheese filling, & neither of us are pepperjack fans, so I will make it w/ shredded cheddar cheese & maybe add some chives. Thanks for sharing!

  22. i can’t wait to try this I love cream cheese n bacon together n I never thought to add chicken I always make bacon shrimp wrap peppers with pepper jack cheese n extra cream cheese but now I’m sure this is going to be my fav now thank you for showing me this

    • Yes! You can freeze them. I am a fan of vacuum seal bags for freezer cooking, but you do not need to rely on them. I also use self sealing freezer bags. I prepare each spirally wrapped chicken piece, then nestle them, sides touching, in a freezer or vacuum seal bag that is placed on its side to maximize surface area. I usually freeze my meat on a baking sheet for an hour or two before putting them through the vacuum bag. It just keeps the juices from running out. Hope this helps and that you are enjoying a lovely meal tonight! Blessings.

    • Hi Stephanie, A little bit of it does melt out. But when the bacon is wrapped to the end of the chicken it helps to keep most of it in. Also, what does run out creates a lovely little puddle of crispy cheese that I always include on the plate, because everyone fights over it! Hope this helps.

  23. Great dish, but you quote the bible etc, yet don’t give the original poster any credit which deserve, after all they created it.

    • Hi Cae, you are so right! I always give credit to the originator of a recipe when I know it. In this case this recipe was posted on Facebook and SHARED around but it had no name of where it came from. I Googled the recipe to see if I could find the origin only to find dozens of recipes very similar posted from to Thank you for your comment and rest assured I will always link back to originators when I can!

      • that’s good to hear. as a recipe creator that is a thing close to my heart. and i can’t wait to try this recipe it sounds yummy

        • Cae, I am not much of a recipe creator. Occasionally I will come up with one on my own but most generally I am tweaking someone else’s. Please feel free to send a recipe or two my way as I would love to see and share your work! Have a blessed weekend,

      • This recipe was printed in a magazine (can’t remember which one!) about 20 years ago. I remember it well because I made it for my sister’s baby shower! It also called for a base of uncooked rice, can of chicken broth and the chicken placed on top. It was delicious then, still delicious now!!

  24. This is absolutely delicious as written, the second time I made it I added minced garlic to the stuffing mixture and it was also good! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, my family loves it!

  25. Hi hun I live in a small country town where we run a fortnightly newsletter. I am always on the hunt for recipes to submit. I thought I had better ask you if its ok to use some of your yummy recipes
    thanks Vicki

  26. BACON WRAPPED CREAM CHEESE STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST…… it says cut up chicken into 4 equal sizes, is that 4 chicken breasts, or one breast cut in 4? I always get mine split….. so should I cut the half in 2? HELP!!

    • Hi Betty, I’ll bet this is too late but hopefully not. When I buy chicken breasts they are usually the size of my hand or a large man’s hand. That is the one I cut in half. The size really depends on the size you want your rolled up chicken to end up. This ends up being about 3 to 4″ rolled up and is the right size for one serving. Let me know if you have other questions!

    • Yes Delores, you can use mozzarella or another kind of melting cheese. However … mozzarella doesn’t have a lot of flavor so the whole thing might be a little bland. If you use mozzarella then I recommend you baste the chicken breasts with chili sauce or some favorite sauce at the end while broiling the bacon. That will give you a flavor pop!

      • I make a variation of this recipe with Mozzarella and Gruyere cheeses rather than the pepperjack as we love the creaminess. The Gruyere adds flavor that the Mozzarella lacks. I typically also add a bit of asparagus or spinach as well. Definitely a family favorite!!

    • I believe you can make this ahead, bake it, wrap well and refrigerate during the week to warm up later. I have warmed up a leftover a few days later and it was great. I have never baked and frozen and then thawed so I don’t know about that.

  27. I have made this a few times now.. Oven and Bar-b-qued.. Basted with maple syrup once, honey mustard once and to the original recipe once… They were all delicious… My next tryout is spinach, tomatoes soaked in oil chopped and mozzarella… My girlfriend is doing cream cheese, rosemary and hickory smoked bacon this evening.. I am a fan of the original recipe of which I will use most but a switch up makes a nice change.. Thank you again for a quick, easy and flavourful recipe…

  28. Very good recipe I added spinach artichoke and mushrooms to it and used provolone cheese turned out very nice will be making this again ..,maybe with more modifications.

  29. I made this and it was good. I excluded the onions because noone in my picky little family likes them. But good none the less. I will be cooking this again.

  30. I just prepared this. Haven’t put it in the oven yet. I couldn’t get mine rolled all the way. They looked more like tacos. Lol. I’m sure it will taste ask the same tho. I myself added diced jalapeños also. Can’t wait to eat it.

  31. I tried this recipe tonight and it was DELICIOUS. I did change some things after reading some of the comments. I used chives and added red pepper flakes. I also used sliced pepperjack instead of shredded because I had it in the fridge. I will definitely make this again. BTW, the bacon browned just fine after I put it under the broiler.

    • Your approximation of 2500 calories might be just a bit outside reality….. Chicken breast is 130 calories, cream cheese 160, pepper jack cheese 110, bacon 45 per slice (180 for 4) and a negligible calorie count for green onion…. A bit shy of 2,500 calories.

      • Steve, you are so right. When I got the recipe via Facebook there was no calorie count and I try to keep an “everything in moderation” lifestyle, which includes a bacon wrapped chicken breast from time to time! Thanks for taking the time to help us all with these numbers! As you say … “a bit shy of 2,500 calories”!

  32. Making these tonight. We are using montery jack and fresh jalapenos instead of the pepper jack cheese. I came across this recipe while looking for a bacon wrapped cream cheese stuffed jalapeno recipe. Hence the addition of jalapenos. Lol. I may in the future try a goat cheese and chive stuffing too. These look awesome and I am really excited!

  33. reading this recipe, I thought that some crushed red pepper/onion chrevre from the creamery I help my friend at would be tasty in this!! We love goat cheese and the chevre is much like cream cheese. Will be trying this on Sunday!

  34. I found this recipe and it looks great but I’m short on cash and only have bonless skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts, will it still work well or should it be done with only breasts?

    • No problem. I just don’t happen to like dark meat and so most of my recipes tend towards chicken breasts. Carefully debone the thigh and then pound lightly. This will give you a very nice piece of chicken to stuff and wrap. Please let me know how you like it!

  35. My husband said ummm, very, very good. He said you sure can make this again. I had 5 breasts, 8 oz. cream cheese, cut up some provolone cheese and half the amount of motzerella and did a yellow onion, and bacon. I did not have the other items I was suppose to use. He is over there moaning. lol.

  36. My cream cheese mixture is coming out. It does not look anything like yours. I am hoping it will still taste good. 30 minutes and my bacon is not near brown.

    • Debbie, not to worry, sometimes the cream cheese does cook out a bit depending on how the ends are put together. Just serve that lovely crisp cheese along with the chicken! Also, bacon will not brown totally until you broil at the end.

  37. Is there a good substitute for the green onion? Its the only thing I don’t have on hand. Wasn’t sure about chives maybe??

  38. I’m wondering if there a typo in the recipe? After mixing the ingredients together you say put 1/4 of it on the chicken with no comment about left overs. Should it say 1/2 of the mixture on each breast?
    I do plan on making this. Thanks

    • Hi Lauri, you are so right. jalapenos for the spicy spirit would be great. I have had others ask about grilling and although I haven’t done it, I can totally see how it will work fine. Thanks for sharing!

  39. Made this last night for a friends and my birthday dinner was very good. I added broccoli and Mexican cheese instead of pepper jack cheese to the cream cheese. We had stuffed mushrooms, roasted potatoes and corn on the cob. Rave reviews from everyone. Defiantly will make again.

  40. I’m thinking a few jalapeño pieces in each breast would be a nice addition if pepper jack was not available. Think I’ll try it soon!

  41. Going to try this within the next few days, but being a true New Mexican, gonna have to add chopped green chili to the stuffing mix.

  42. I am going to make this Wednesday night for supper. I am going to fry up some onion, green peppers and some fresh mushrooms and add it to the stuffing. I make this anyways but use my fried onions, mushrooms and green pepper and seal with an egg and then roll in shake and bake, really good and everyone loves it. I will let you no how I like your receipt mixed with mine, xo

  43. Do you slice the chicken like you butterfly a steak and then pound it to make it a 1/4 inch thick? What do use to pound it? Looks scrumptious!

    • Mashed potatoes and green beans are always perfect with chicken. However, I have done this with a rice medley and a broccoli and cheese casserole. You will find these are tasty and look so nice on the plate that many things can accompany. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  44. What if I don’t have cream cheese (or any of the reasonable cottage cheese/yogurt) substitutes? I have some good block cheeses (buffalo wing cheddar and smokehouse onion cheddar), but my cream cheese just went bad. I wanted to cook this tonight and not have to run out to the store. Has anyone tried this *without* the cream cheese?

  45. Bought everything going to try it tonight. Thanks I have a granddaughter that loves bacon and mainly only eats chicken for dinner. Great to make them together for her.

  46. They’re in the oven now! I’m a mom to two small children, so I don’t always have a lot of time to fuss over a recipe, and I was surprised how quickly these came together. It’ll be even faster the next time I make them. I’m hoping my finicky little ones will like the recipe. Thanks for sharing such an easy, fun recipe.

  47. This recipe was a HIT in my household. The only thing I did different is cut up some bacon pieces and added cheddar cheese because my oldest DON’T DO SPICY AT AL. My husband was born a Chef and can cook anything. So of course I was a little afraid to try this but he love it. He cut his into two pieces and added soy sauce. The girls just loved it by itself. Thank you Catherine we will be bringing this one back to my oven or grill soon.

    • I have never done this onthe grill but I don’t see why not. Even in the oven I turn it and broil a bit to get that nice brown on the bacon and on the grill that will happen naturally. Best thing is to use a quick read thermometer and make sure your chicken is 165 degrees (don’t test the middle because that is where the cheese will be.)

    • This recipe is in Dana Carpender’s cook book “500 Low Carb Recipes” and I have been making it for years. In that version you do it on the grill after wrapping it in bacon until you see no chicken. When the cheese starts to ooze out, it’s done! And it’s delicious!

      • Liz, thank you so much for this information! I am going to check out the recipe in Dana’s book! I got it from Facebook with no credit to the author. I would love to update the recipe with credit to the author! Also the carb count would be good to know. Thanks!

    • Steve, if she likes bacon — definitely YES! It is also really easy to do, just takes a little time and several steps. You can make it the day before, wrap it tight and pop in the oven when ready to bake. Also, one reader says to baste with chili sauce. That sounds wonderful too! Good luck and blessings.

  48. I made these this week and they were delicious! I unfortunately tend to overcook chicken, so i am always a bit nervous about new dishes, but these were cooked perfectly and very tender.
    One question–can they be put together before hand, frozen, and then cooked later? Any pointers?

    • April, for years I cooked my chicken to death. No offense to my sous-chef dish-washing mom, but some where along the line she told me “chicken takes an hour to cook.” That was my mantra for years. I know now it doesn’t always take an hour to cook! Yes, these can be frozen and cooked later. Start with fresh chicken, because I wouldn’t freeze chicken that had previously been frozen. Make the whole piece including wrapping in bacon. Seal them up well, (plastic then foil) or better yet, freeze on a tray for an hour or two and then place in seal-a-meal bag and close airtight. Then bake them right from the freezer. They will take longer to bake, just use an instant read thermometer — at least 165 degrees. You can also make day before, cover well in refrig and then bake just before serving dinner. I have done this for a dinner party, works great!

    • Janet, Monterey Jack (sometimes shortened simply to Jack cheese) is an American semihard cheese, customarily pale yellow or white, made using cow’s milk. It is commonly sold by itself, or mixed with Colby to make a marbled cheese known as Colby-Jack (or Co-Jack). Cheddar-Jack varieties are also available. Pepperjack is Monterey Jack with jalapeno peppers mixed in. If you can’t find pepperjack then other variations may include a blue cheese or Havarti or Havarti dill. Really any of your favorite cheese that you can mix with cream cheese will work!

    • Pepper Jack Cheese is Monteray Jack with jalapenos in it. I didn’t use that. I used Monteray Jack and canned green chilies. It was delish!

  49. When I make this, I always sprinkle some brown sugar on top ! ! As the saying goes…….”Makes a preacher wanna slap his Mama !!!”
    Sooooooooooo seriously nummy ! Nothing like sweet and savory !!!

  50. I put onions and the red yellow and orange peppers in mine bc they are sweeter and I also add crushed crackers you will probably need to use toothpicks to hold them together but it is amazing

    • Hi Rochelle, you are so right! Both the horseradish jack or pesto gouda would be fabulous! So many options … thanks for stopping by, hope you will visit again!

  51. I make this for my husband at least once a month. But for my filling i fry up bacon and poor the cooked bacon and a little grease in to the cream cheese and mix it together. Plus i wrap the chicken in bacon. U can never have enough bacon.

  52. I made this yesterday for supper… I’m not a huge fan of chicken, but I had to try this recipe… I did as the recipe says. What I also did was basted it with Sweet Chilli sauce, ground pepper and garlic… I think this recipe is awesome… Thank you for sharing…

  53. This was a gold metal recipe years ago in women’s day magazine . They use cream cheese w/chives. Also it called for baking on the top oven rack @ 425. The bacon becomes crisp & u don’t need to use the broiler I hated pounding the chicken. So I use a split chicken breast, bone in, make a pocket in the middle & stuff. Then wrap with bacon. Much easier!
