Bacon Wrapped Baked Chicken

I am always looking for new ways to cook chicken, and when I saw a few recipes floating around for Bacon Wrapped Baked Chicken, I knew I had to give it a try. I followed a recipe I saw on Pinterest from Artsy Fartsy Mama.

Bacon Wrapped Baked Chicken

Start by lining a cookie sheet with foil, place your boneless, skinless chicken breasts on the foil, cover with plastic wrap, and then use a mallet to take out your aggression from the day, and beat the chicken until it’s thin 🙂

Place a layer of bacon, about 3 strips on the foil. The original recipe I followed also had 2 strips going the opposing way, but I thought I’d take a short cut and slice my bacon, and just use 3 strips. Sprinkle the chicken with some salt and pepper, then add a dollop of cream cheese onto the chicken, and top it off with some shredded cheese.

Wrap the bacon around your chicken. You can use toothpicks to help secure it, if needed.

At the halfway point, you’ll take the pan out of the oven, flip them over, then cook for another 30 minutes.
