Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe

I made this last night and that will not be the last time I try this Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe. This really is the perfect wrap it has cream cheese and butter and anything wrapped in bacon is fine by me. Next time I plan to try it with turkey bacon. This recipe is great to prepare in advance. If you are making these ahead for future use, freeze these uncooked on a cookie sheet in your freezer. When solid, wrap and put in a ziplock bag and seal desired quantities. To cook from frozen state, thaw before cooking and follow directions below.

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 18 slices bacon
  • 1 (8 ounce) cartons chive & onion cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • salt

Directions

  1. Flatten  the chicken to 1/2″ thickness.
  2. Spread 3 tablespoons of cream cheese over each piece of  chicken.
  3. Dot with butter and sprinkle with salt; roll up chicken.
  4. Wrap each rolled chicken with 3 bacon strips.
  5. Place, seam side down, in a greased pan.
  6. Bake, uncovered, at 400F for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear.
  7. Broil 6 inches from the heat for 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
