Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast






  • 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


How to Make It

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