Bacon-wrapped, Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This recipe is more about technique for baked stuffed chicken. The filling could easily be substituted with whatever type of cheese or stuffing you like. I started with cream cheese and fresh chives.

What you need:

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast per person, butterflied, and pounded slightly
  • Cream cheese, softened
  • Chopped fresh chives
  • -or-  Pre-packaged cream cheese and chives spread
  • 2-3 Bacon strips per chicken breast (smoked thick-sliced works great)

What to do:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combined cream cheese and chives in a bowl and blend well. Spread a good spoonful of cheese mixture over chicken breast. Roll chicken breast to conceal the cheese mixture, and then wrap with bacon strips, securing with toothpicks as needed. Repeat for each chicken breast.

Place chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet (for easy clean-up). Bake for 30-35 minutes till cooked through. Broil for an addition 5+/- minutes to crisp up the bacon.
