I am always looking for new ways to cook chicken, and when I saw a few recipes floating around for Bacon Wrapped Chicken, I knew I had to give it a try.

I followed a recipe I saw on Pinterest from Artsy Fartsy Mama.

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, and beat the chicken until it’s thin 🙂

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 chicken breasts with bacon, you can criss-cross if desired, and you can use toothpicks where needed, to keep the bacon attached.

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

My family loved this bacon wrapped chicken breast recipe, it was a huge success!

I serve it with Broccoli, Roasted Potatoes, Steamed Vegetables, and Instant Pot Corn on the Cob.
