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!”

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!

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Cut chicken into 4 equal size pieces. Pound breast so it is about 1/4" thick.
  2. 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.
  3. Starting at the long side, roll chicken breast up, keeping the cheese mixture to the middle.
  4. Wrap 1 to 2 slices of bacon around the chicken breast, secure with a toothpick, if needed.
  5. Place on baking sheet (with an edge on it) or a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.
  6. 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.
  7. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • 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.
