Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken - Rebekah and her Ramblings. Chicken stuffed with cream cheese WRAPPED IN BACON!It was 98 degrees yesterday. Yesterday was October 12. Those last two sentences make me want to be sick and cry. You know what doesn’t make me want to cry? Bacon. And chicken. And cream cheese. And green onions. And all of that stuff mixed together make me forget the fact that I am dripping in sweat walking from my car to the mailbox while my family in Nebraska is having to put extra layers on at night to stay warm. I made this chicken for dinner two days in a row two different ways. I think I have perfected the flavors for you guys! And it’s gluten free and packed with protein.

Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken - Rebekah and her Ramblings. Chicken stuffed with cream cheese WRAPPED IN BACON!What you need:

  • 1 large chicken breast, butterflied and separated (so you should have 2 pieces of chicken)
  • Lawry’s seasoning salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened (I used fat free), divided
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
  • 2-4 slices of bacon

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375* and line a baking sheet with foil
  • Season both sides of the chicken with the Lawry’s and pepper
  • Spread half the cream cheese on each piece of chicken, making sure to leave a little bit of room on the edge without cream cheese
  • Sprinkle the chopped green onions on the cream cheese, and press them down to stick
  • Starting with the widest part of your chicken, roll gently and tightly towards the skinny end
  • Take a slice of bacon and wrap it around the chicken – you may need 2 pieces per chicken
  • You can secure the bacon with tooth picks or place the seam side down on the baking sheet
  • Bake for 28-30 minutes (or the chicken is done) and then broil for about 2 more minutes or the bacon crisps to your liking. Flip the chicken over and broil until the bacon is done, usually another 2-3 minutes. If you broil on high, watch it like a hawk and watch out when you open your oven
  • Remove from oven and let chicken sit for 2 minutes before removing to a plate to cut open
