Cooking Club: Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Happy Saturday! It is cold and rainy here. This next recipe is a big one that would be perfect if you have lots of family in town. If you don't you might want to cut the recipe in half. I picked it as it has two of my favorite foods, cream cheese and bacon. Can't go wrong there. You can find the other cooking club recipes here.

About This Recipe

"This is another great way to make something great ahead of time to thaw as needed or eat right now with little effort!"


    • 12 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    • 2 (8 ounce) cartons chive & onion cream cheese
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • salt
    • 12 slices bacon


  1. Flatten chicken to 1/2" thickness.
  2. Spread 3 tablespoons cream cheese over each chicken piece.
  3. Dot with butter and sprinkle with salt; roll up.
  4. Wrap each with a bacon strip.
  5. Place, seam side down, in a greased pan.
  6. Bake, uncovered, at 400F for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear.
  7. Broil 6 inches from the heat for 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
  8. If you are making these ahead for future use, freeze these uncooked on a cookie sheet in your freezer. When solid, wrap and put in a ziplock bag or vacuum seal desired quantities.
  9. To cook from frozen state, thaw before cooking and follow directions above.


  1. YUM!! In my house, we live by the motto: Everything's better with bacon. LOL

  2. They make this at the Brazilian place I frequent. I seriously can NOT wait until it makes the rounds.

  3. Oh my, that sounds so good! The picture alone makes me want to try this.

  4. If it's made of bacon, I'll eat it!

  5. This sounds delicious! And I'm so glad you have your Cooking Club .. as I'm not creative when it comes to cooking and this does the work for me!

    I love this pair - the chicken and bacon together! YUM!
