BACON WRAPPED CREAM CHEESE STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST

BACON WRAPPED CREAM CHEESE STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST

An easy, but elegant main dish! The chicken is moist, the flavor superb and the bacon a perfect wrapping!

Main Dish

Serves: 4 large servings

Ingredients

1 lb. Boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 4 - 4 ounce pieces

4 tablespoons cream cheese

¼ cup Pepperjack cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons green onion, chopped

4 to 8 pieces of bacon

Instructions

Cut chicken into 4 equal size pieces. Pound breast so it is about ¼" thick.

Mix together softened cream cheese, chopped green onions and shredded pepperjack cheese. Put ¼ of this mixture into the middle of each piece of chicken.

Starting at the long side, roll chicken breast up, keeping the cheese mixture to the middle.

Wrap 1 to 2 slices of bacon around the chicken breast, secure with toothpick, if needed.

Place on baking sheet and back for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.

Broil topside for about 5 minutes to fully brown and crisp bacon. Turn each breast over and broil for another 3 minutes or so to crisp up the bottom side.

Serve immediately.

Notes

* One piece of bacon wrapped around each breast is enough. But 2 pieces of bacon for each breast fully wraps the chicken and is outstanding as well.

* 1 lb. of chicken usually equals one large chicken breast cut in half. Cut each half in half again and you will have four 4 ounce pieces.

* This recipe is very adaptable to being basted with your favorite grilling sauce, marinade, chili sauce, or sweet and sour sauce during baking.
