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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Stuffed Chicken Breast

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.
