Bacon wrapped stuffed chicken

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.

Ingredients:

2 Chicken breast (we prefer boneless, skinless)

2 strips of bacon

Herbed cream cheese (such as Alouette or Rondele)

Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

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.
