You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Bacon is fatty and delicious! It pairs so well with chicken with its saltiness and crispy texture it brings.
  • Loaded with cream cheese that’s mixed with sharp cheddar, chives, onion and black pepper for ultimate flavor.
  • This recipe is super easy to make. You whip the cream cheese, spread it then roll the chicken with bacon, too easy!

How To Cook Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Starting, you need to bring your full fat cream cheese to room temperature. This makes everything so easy to mix and you’ll thank me later.

Next, take the chicken and split it. A meat tenderizer can help flatten the chicken here then season with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, add your cream cheese. Chop up fresh chives. Add diced onion and chive along with black pepper. Then, mix well in cream cheese.

Take a small spoon and spread across each chicken breast, then roll. You may need 2 strips of bacon but even if you don’t extra bacon is great. Wrap the bacon around the chicken, if you need to secure with toothpicks.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Lastly, place on broil and crisp up your bacon. You’ll need to flip the chicken to get both sides.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Use full fat cream cheese. It’s higher in fat, chicken is low in fat and if you’re on keto you will need the added fat.
  • Stretch bacon to cover as much of the chicken as you possibly can.
  • Do not skip broiling! This is the part that makes the bacon crispy. I left the oven open while I watched because bacon burns quickly.
