This is my own take on a stuffed chicken with bacon. It is moist, delicious, and packed with flavor! It is a little bit of work to make, but it is very inexpensive for the quality of the meal.

Also if you end up with leftover cream cheese mixture, you can very lightly spread some over the top of the stuffed breasts and it crisps up very nicely over the bacon.


Preheat the oven to 375°

Pound out your chicken breasts so that they are about 1/4" thick all the way around.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, green onions, tomato, garlic, and spices. Use a knife to chop about 3/4 of a chicken bouillon cube and dissolve in warm water. Mix warm water and mild cheddar with cream cheese mixture until the cheddar fully combines with the cream cheese.

Spread mixture over one side of the breasts. Roll up the each chicken breast to conceal mixture and wrap each with 2 slices of partially cooked bacon. Try to keep the ends of your bacon near the seems of the chicken so it will be easier to pin with toothpicks.

Cover a baking sheet (i would suggest one with a slight lip) with tinfoil and place the breasts on it, leaving plenty of room between them. Place in the center of the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Move pan to higher rack and broil on high for 5 minutes to crisp the bacon.
