How To Make stuffed cream cheese chicken wrapped in bacon

  • 1
    Open your strips of bacon, and let set at room temp while preparing your filling and chicken.
  • 2
    Wash the chicken breasts. I cut my chicken in half longways to make one breast into two. Flatten the chicken by pounding them out to be about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 3
    Mix cream cheese and green onion together, add seasonings and bacon bits and spread 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture onto each of the flattened chicken breasts.
  • 4
    Roll up the chicken pieces and wrap them with the strip of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
  • 5
    Place the chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Broil the top the last 5 minutes to crisp the bacon.
