Ok so you KNOW this stuff is gonna be good.  Know how you can know?  Let me just repeat the title for you: cream cheese. stuffed. chicken. wrapped. in bacon….C’mon now your taste buds don’t stand a chance!  This is just too much deliciousness. Game over.

This mouth-watering meal only calls for 4 ingredients so it’s also budget friendly.  One thing I really like about this dish is that the bacon is actually crispy!  Most times when I bake a dish in the oven with bacon in it, the bacon doesn’t crisp up.  With this recipe, after baking, you broil it for a few minutes so you get that delicious crispness.

I would love to make this on the grill, but I’m afraid my cream cheese would ooze out everywhere on the grill.  Is there a solution to this?  Any suggestions from my highly intelligent readers? (non highly intelligent readers can also feel free to make suggestions)

Serves: 6

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 (8 oz) carton chive and onion cream cheese
6 slices of bacon
salt (to taste)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Slice each breast in half lengthwise so that each is about 1/2 inch thick.

Spread about 3 tablespoons of cream cheese over each chicken breast. Then season with salt.  Roll up and wrap with a slice of bacon. If necessary, stick a toothpick through to hold it together.

Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes (or until juices run clear).

Turn on the broiler and broil six inches from the heat for 5 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
