One of our favorite meals when we are in a hurry has to be bacon wrapped chicken. You only need a few ingredients and it is sure to impress if you have last-minute dinner guests.
2 Chicken breast (we prefer boneless, skinless)
2 strips of bacon
Herbed cream cheese (such as Alouette or Rondele)
Salt and pepper to taste
Butterfly the chicken breast almost in half from side, creating a pocket
Fill pocket in chicken with a Tbsp of herbed cream cheese
Close up chicken breast and wrap with a piece of bacon
Season with salt and pepper
Close up chicken/secure bacon with two toothpicks
Bake at 375 degrees, uncovered, for 45 minutes (over temps/cooking times may vary)
If the bacon has not crisped to your liking, place under broiler for 1 minute. If not crisped, keep chicken under broiler and check every 30 seconds.
Serve with your favorite side dish and a glass of white wine!
Season chicken breast with salt and pepper.
