Should you think that chicken breast is dry and boring? Think again. Bacon, pepper jack and cream cheese. Anything with bacon is heaven and you will not believe how good pepper jack and cream cheese are together. Almost like a perfect match made in heaven. This dish may be perfect even for the Gods! Trust me, it’s that good.
All you will need to do is get some chicken breast from the supermarket and have it cut into 4 pieces. Chicken breast is leaner and a rather affordable protein source so it is highly recommended. If your chicken breast is rather large, you can also butterfly the meat by slicing along the side of the breast and cutting it through. Alternatively, if the chicken meat is thick or tough, pound it a little with the rolling pin and you now have tender chicken waiting to be cooked in the most amazing recipe ever.
Next, you will need to prepare the cream cheese stuffing. Mix up some cream cheese, green onions, and pepper jack cheese and place a dollop on the inside of the chicken. Be careful not to place too much or it will spill when you roll the meat up. Now, roll up the chicken breast from the long side and wrap a piece of bacon around it. Arrange the cream cheese stuffed chicken breast wrapped in bacon pieces in an oven proof dish. Pop it into the preheated oven for 30 minutes at a temperature of 375 degrees Fahrenheit or 190 degrees Celsius and it’s all done!
You can even add extra flavor to the dish by basting it with a sauce or marinade of your own. Honey, mustard, chili.. you name it. A friend has also taken this dish to add an Italian touch by adding tomato and basil sauce to the cooked bacon wrapped chicken breast stuffed with cream cheese. Talk about versatility! Switch up the flavors to your taste. Go ahead and throw in a couple of other kinds of cheese. Cheddar or even feta! No one’s judging since a happy tummy is a happy you. The next time I’m making this, I’m going to try adding some jalapeno peppers in the cream cheese mixture. A little bit of spicy kick with a Mexican touch. So looking forward do it!
