Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We can see why friends and family request this dish... it's delicious! The chicken stays super moist while the cream cheese stuffing is ooey gooey good. The bacon and onions on top add that extra pop of flavor.

Ingredients

4-6
chicken breasts
4 oz
cream cheese
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
1/2 tsp
chili powder
1/2 c
shredded cheese
4 slice
bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 c
chopped green onions
1 c
shredded cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix cream cheese, garlic, chili powder, and 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
2
Butterfly breasts and stuff pockets. Put in baking dish, cover, bake for 45 minutes.
3
Cook up bacon 5 minutes before serving. Cover chicken with remaining cheese, green onions, and bacon bits before serving.

*HINT* Directly out of the oven, I add the cheese, bacon, and onions (in that order) on top of the chicken, put the lid back on, and wait 5 minutes to melt the cheese before dishing and serving.
