This recipe is not only easy, you can even customize it as you like. This is my go-to dinner option and everyone loves it. There is nothing to hate about chicken and bacon with cream cheese and more cheese. I mean it is perfect and it hits all the right spot! It is freaking delicious, the chicken is tender, and the bacon is bacon. Everybody loves bacon and it is amazing no matter what. And the kids are always requesting for chicken so this is excellent. Cream cheese and chicken are the most popular combination but most of the time cream cheese is overpowered by spices and seasonings. But this recipe gives way to the tart cream cheese and no one can complain because hey it’s cream cheese!
2 Boneless skinless chicken breast
4 tablespoons cream cheese
1/4 cup Pepperjack cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
4 to 8 pieces of bacon
HOW TO MAKE BACON WRAPPED CREAM CHEESE STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST
Step 1: Slice the chicken into 4 similar size pieces and pound to make them about 1/4-inch thick.
Step 2: In a bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, chopped green onions, and shredded pepper jack cheese. Mix well.
Step 3: Spoon 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each chicken piece.
Step 4: Roll the chicken breasts up starting at the longest side, making sure to keep the mixture in the middle.
Step 5: Then, wrap the chicken breasts with 1 to 2 slices of bacon. Secure them with toothpick.
Step 6: I use only 1 piece of bacon but you can wrap 2 pieces of bacon if needed. 1 piece is enough as 2 slices of bacon can fully wrap the chicken and it may seem overwhelming.
Step 7: Put the bacon-wrapped breasts on a baking sheet and place inside the oven to bake for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.
Step 8: Then, broil the top to fully brown and crisp the bacon for 5 minutes.
Step 9: Flip to the other side and broil for 3 minutes more to crisp both sides.
