Cream Cheese, Garlic, and Chive Stuffed Chicken
Butterflied chicken breasts are stuffed with a garlic, chive, and cream cheese mixture, wrapped with a slice of bacon, and topped with butter. Very delicious and easy to make!

This was absolutely delishous but I did tweek the recipe.Firtst, I cooked the bacon till it was almost done and sat it aside I substituted half the cream cheese with mozzarella. I seasoned the chicken with onion and garlic powder and seasoning salt.Then I sauted (sp) the chicken breast in olive oil instead of butter just till the outside meat was white. Then I baked for half the time it called for and broiled it the other half of the time to make the bacon crisp It was the best meal I ever cooked I've made it twice already and I cant get enough of it. My all time favorite recipe already.Read More
I seriously love cream cheese, but the filling for this chicken was just too much for me. Next time, I'll probably tweak the filling and use half cream cheese and half feta cheese, just to cut the overpowering taste/texture of the cream cheese. I'll also add more garlic and some onion instead of the chives... maybe add some parsley for color. I used regular bacon and topped each piece of chicken with parmesan cheese, which got brown and crispy and yummy.Read More

Delicious! Thanks for the idea =) ..& here I go with my annoying list of "changes" lol ..but that's the fun of cooking! ..right? Started with thin cut breasts. Used Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese mixed in my processer with lots of fresh garlic, Shredded mozz, grated parm, a little sour cream, crumbled bacon and fresh ground pepper. Dipped my breast 1st in butter and roasted garlic olive oil then in italian bread crumbs and more parm. Served with buttered corn and Stove Top Stuffing. Very rich but soooo yummy!!
This recipe has many great possibilities. 5 stars to the cook who suggested wrapping in puff pastry!! The chicken itself needed more zip so maybe sprinkling with some barbeque salt would help? I also suggest sauteing fresh mushrooms and onion in garlic butter and a splash of white wine and spooning that in the middle along with some herb and garlic cream cheese, wrapping in prosciutto and puff pastry, placing seam side down on a cookie sheet, brushing with egg whites and baking @ 375 for ~40minutes. cover with foil for a while if the pastry is getting too brown. Yum
This is a great recipe and I swear you could put just about anything rolled up inside a chicken breast and it's bound to be good. Plus the combination of cream cheese, chives, and bacon was a clue to me that this was going to be tasty. Given that my husband loves bacon I had to give this a try. But, I did make a couple of changes... First I pounded my chicken breasts down thin. Second I used fresh chives vs. dried and aded a little onion powder to the cream cheese mixture. I cooked my bacon (real bacon, not turkey bacon) just until tender-crisp and placed that onto the chicken breasts then added the cream cheese mixture and secured with toothpicks. I dipped the chicken in egg and then seasoned Italian bread crumbs to form a light coating. I then drizzled it with a little melted butter and baked at 375 for 30 mintues. The result was a very moist and flavorful chicken bursting with a delicious cream cheese and bacon center!
WOW! I changed this one up just a bit, I coated the outside of my chicken in eggs, and breadcrumbs... and then stuffeed them, and wrapped them in reg. bacon (not turkey). IT WAS AWESOME! My husband gobbeled it up, and not only was it delcious and pretty simple to prepare, it looked elegant on the plate because of the bacon! I would make this one for a dinner party!
YUMMY!!! After reading the other reviews on how plain the chicken was to them, I marinated the chicken with romano basil salad dressing. It was fabulous!!!!!
I was on this site looking for a bnls chicken breast recipe...something different from what I usually make. When I came across this one it sounded awesome so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did! This is a recipe that you could go nuts modifying! I used regular bacon...baked for about 10 minutes on a baking sheet. I then put the butterflied chicken breasts (I used 6 small) on the same baking sheet with the drippings from the bacon. I seasoned the chicken with granulated garlic, herbs, Adobo, and salt. I filled the breasts with a mixture of cream cheese, 2 jalapenos (seeded and chopped) and about 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese. I then wrapped each breast with 2 slices of bacon and baked for about 35 minutes. OMG...we LOVED this and will definitely be making again. My daughter had the leftovers for breakfast!!
This turned out very well. I used garlic herb cream cheese to add more flavor. I also cooked up the bacon about half way before wrapping the chicken to get it done. We really liked this...thanks for the post.
This was pretty yummy! I didnt follow the directions to the word though. I used chive and onion cream cheese to save myself some effort, and I mixed in mozz. cheese, making it 1/2 cream cheese and 1/2 mozz. Advice: The bacon on mine not edible(too soft) I will slightly pan fry it before wrapping the next time. Also this chicken stays white so it's hard to tell by appearances when it is done cooking. Just a heads up. I will make this again!

i absolutly love this recipe, although i usually cook it for about 40 minutes. i also use onions instead of chives and i add chopped bacon to the cream cheese as well as bacon over the chicken.
I make this often and mine sounds ummm...a little better... I put in ham and thinly sliced mushrooms over the cream cheese mixture. I then add a little lemon juice. After the chicken has cooked,I take it out and stir up all the good brown bits with 1/2 c white wine, 1/2 c chicken stock and the rest of the lemon juice and let reduce a few minutes, add a pat of butter to thicken and make glossy....heaven!!
Delicious and so easy!
This chicken made a great meal. Thank you to the reviewer who suggesting dipping in egg and breadcrumbs before stuffing and baking. I did the same thing. I did not add bacon, because my husband is allergic. For the stuffing, I used 4 oz. of cream cheese, a couple tablespoons of crumbed feta cheese, the chives and garlic. I marinated the chicken the night before cooking in Italian dressing. So great! I think I'll be making this again for special family meals.
Just like all the others I like to find a recipe that has potential and make it my own. So for this one I liked the idea but sounded like it needed some tweaking. My "stuffing" went something like this, sauted 1/2 onion with 2 cloves of minced garlic in olive oil, once the onions were translucent I tossed in the washed and dried thawed spinach, then set it aside. Next I fried 3 strips of bacon - pulled them out to cool and tossed the spinach mixture in the bacon drippings, crumbled the 3 pieces of bacon and tossed in the mixture and set aside again. Next I added almost half a container of ricotta, and half a brick of cream cheese and about 1/2 cup of parmesean cheese, and 1/2 cup bread crumbs. About a tsp of season salt, and black pepper and called it done on the stuffing. Fried 8 pieces of bacon until the fat was clear and the edges were just starting to crisp, and Pounded out 4 rather large butterflied boneless chicken breasts and spread out 1/4 of the mixture leaving about a 1/2 inch edge around. Rolled it up and then wrapped two pieces of bacon around each one (secured with tooth picks) Placed each portion in a 9x13 pan sprayed with cooking spray and sprinkled the top of the chicken with season salt. I added about 2 tbs of butter to the baking dish and threw em in the oven at 350 for 35-40 min then turned the broiler on low for about 10 min to finish crisping up the bacon. My guy LOVED them, so thanks for the inspiration!
Yummy! I did need to tweak it a bit though to add flavor. Here's what I did: - chicken: I marinated it with garlic salt, a little olive oil, pepper, basil and minced garlic - filling: I mixed mozzarella and parmesan cheese with the cream cheese and chives. - butter: added more and brushed it on before and during It was sooo good! Everyone loved it!
This was a really fun recipe to make your own. I put 1/2 the cream cheese, then added mozerrella, lots of garlic and bacon crumbled and italian tomatoes. I sprinkled the top with romano. WOW was this ever good!! You can really play with this one.
This was AWESOME! I made it for a group of Marines and everyone kept complimenting on how good it was! My fiance especially raved about how delicious it was. I will definitely be making this again!
I really wish I could rate this higher, but I followed the recipe & it was a disaster. After baking 35 min, the bacon was not cooked AT ALL. I pulled the bacon off to finish it in the microwave & the bits of cream cheese that were on the bacon burned to the papertowel. Once I had unwrapped the bacon from the chicken, the cream cheese mix completely leaked out of the chicken into the hot pan, melting it all. SOOOOO, the chicken was very moist but I only got to taste about 1 tsp of the cream cheese mix w/it & it was very bland. The bacon I ended up crumbling on top of the chicken was very good w/the chicken, just wish it would've come all together. I OBVIOUSLY should've read the reviews before making this because, out of the 4 & 5 star reviews I read afterwards, NOT ONE person made the recipe as written.
This was a great idea I just think it needs more seasoning b/c it didn't have alot of flavor. So I used a cheeseball mix (from tastefully simple)and added that to the cream cheese before baking it.
Delicious, moist chicken (: I pounded each breast down to flatten some. Pre cooked bacon slightly. Mixed about 1/3 cup mozza in with cream cheese. Used green onion as I had no chives. Sprinkled chicken with Johnny Salt and pepper. Baked 375 for 30 min. turned out really good although next time will precook bacon more as the inside was pretty soft and would prefer it better cooked. Once I had toothpicks in place I coated chicken rolls in the butter then in Italian breadcrumbs mixed with Parmesan. looked picture perfect when I took them out of the oven.
I thought this was a great recipe! I did add a slice of mozzarella and put some bread crumbs with seasonings on top and it was even better! I think next time, I may make it without bacon or put the bacon inside.. but overall, this was great!
Love, love, love!!!! My 1 yr old, who doesn't eat chicken, ate this. I read reviews and changed a few things. I used salt and pepper to season the chicken. I used some mozerrella cheese as well. Finally, I left off the bacon. Yummy
I made a few changes to this recipe because of personal preference but I think it would still be good as written. I cooked a few additional strips of regular bacon and crumbled that into the mixture along with some chopped scallions. I also cheated and used the pre-flavored sour cream & chive Philadelphia cream cheese. I cooked the other strips of bacon for the outside of the chicken until they were almost done and I cooked the chic in olive oil for just over a min on each side before stuffing them with the cheese mixture. I dipped my stuffed chicken in egg and coated them with Italian bread crumbs then secured the bacon around the breasts. I baked for about 40 min. Surprisingly the filling did not leak out and it was very moist. I served with salad, crescent rolls, and loaded mashed potatoes....awesome dinner!!!
This dish was fabulous! The only thing that could improve it would be brushing it with butter or oil before cooking and throwing on some Lawry's salt and pepper.
substituted fresh chives and cut the cream cheese in half...probably threw in about 2 oz of mozz. sprinkled the chicken with garlic powder. like other users I cooked the bacon partially, but it still never really crisped up. maybe the last few minutes should be under the broiler. mine had to stay in for 35 minutes. All in all, super yummy. I paired in with a roasted brussel sprout recipe from this site. I loved it, the hubby loved it! thanks for a great recipe!
Yum! I substituted garlic and herb Boursin cheese instead of the cream cheese and chive mixture and used proscuitto instead of bacon and it was phenomenal!!! Will definitely make again.
My husband gave this a 7 on a five star scale! I added Mozerella and onion powder and breaded the chicken.
I made the chicken with some revisions. I put bacon, parmesan green onion and little onion powder in my cream cheese mix. I rolled the mixture in my flattened chicken breasts and secured with tooth picks. Then i poured melted garlic butter on top! It was very delicious! Thank you for posting this!
Yummy! I love cream cheese! Next time I will pound out the chicken and then roll it up so it cooks better. I didnt add the bacon ontop but I did dip the stuffed chicken in egg and then rolled it in some seasoned bread crumbs. I also Added some crunchy onions in the cream cheese mix! Will try out different flavors next time but a definite keeper!
It was ok, not sure if I would make it again.
This was really good. We substituted prosciutto for the bacon and it turned out great.
broil the last 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon.
This recipe was absolutely wonderful. I did omit the melted butter and it turned out great!
This recipe is bad because current cream is not the consistency that it needs to be compared to 15 years ago the cream cheese just melts out before it firmed up. I have been looking for ten year for good old grade cream cheese not bagel cream cheese in block already whipped.
Thiss was fantastic, but I used cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, dried basil and garlic instead of the chives. I cooked the bacon a bit before wrapping the chicken, then baked it for 40 minutes, then broiled for 5. Could have broiled for a bit longer to make it crisper, but overall delicious!!
In my opinion, there wasn't enough flavor. The bacon gave it a lot of flare, but that was about it. A lot of the cream cheese oozed out of the chicken when I was cooking it. It could have been a lot better.
I added greek yogurt and ranch powder mix with the cream cheese and garlic, and I dipped the stuffed breasts in flour, egg, and then breadcrumbs. Topped all with melted butter and garlic olive oil. Came out stupendous!
Best chicken I've ever had! This recipe is sooo good!!!
So easy to make and so delicious. My family loved it.
I thought this recipe was okay. It was missing something, I couldn't quite put my finger on what it needed. My boyfriend really liked it. He ate it with pizza sauce. I did wrap it in puffed pastry dough. I will make it again only next time I think I will chop up the chicken, mix with the cheese and then wrap in puff pastry dough.
A very good way to dress up chicken! I added some parm-reg to the cream cheese. When I finished baking the chicken, I topped it with lemon cream sauce (with parm-reg as well). Perfect!
Wow this was good! I followed the advice of others and added some shredded italian cheese and parm to the cream cheese mixture. My husband loved it too!
My family, and I love this dish... easy but classy enough for company!!
Tasted good, but the wrapping in bacon and securing with tooth picks just eluded me. The chicken didn't fold all the way over the cream cheese mixture, and it just squished out of the sides when I tried to secure with toothpicks. I ended up laying the bacon and the sauce over the chicken.
So many suggestions about putting more taste on the meat, but I guess I put too much, it was too salty but still tasty, the second time I made it, I just put salt and black pepper on the chicken and nothing on the cream cheese, it was perfect to my taste. (I dont have chives and my husband doesnt like the garlic)
This idea was REALLY good - my husband and I loved it. I did however make some changes.... first of all, I pounded the chicken breasts as flat as i could get them and then cut them down the middle. I used the cream cheese mixture as as a spread and kind of rolled it (like pumpkin bread pattern almost) and then secured it with the toothpicks. I also did not use bacon - not on purpose though, we just didn't have any! Based on other reviews, I wanted the chicken to have some more flavor, so in a bowl, I put some grated parmesan, salt, and pepper, and put one side of the chicken in the bowl then laid it down on the cutting board before I put the cream cheese on. Lastly, I used minced garlic. GREAT idea though :)
this was wonderful. My picky 7 year old ate almost all of it and my husband keept saying how great it was. Still I wish there had been more filling in the center of the chicken all in all it was a great dish and I loved the bacon with it.
This was a great recipe. Of course I had to make some changes. I used fresh green onions and I added a cup of spinach that was cooked and drained. I also seasoned my chicken with onion powder, Garlic salt, and poultry seasoning. One piece of turkey bacon did not cover the whole piece of chicken so I ended up using two per piece of chicken. And I ended up cooking my chicken for 15 minutes covered and about 15 minutes uncovered.
My husband and I love this recipe! I am a very picky eater (but love garlic) and even I thought it was divine! The only change we have is that we normally add a splash of white wine in the bottom of dish.
This was very good. I failed to take bacon out of the freezer so it wasn't wrapped. (I will wrap it next time to try the intended flavor) I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper and added a little Parmesan cheese to the filling. I also put a touch of bacon grease on top of the chicken for that bacon flavor (no butter). There was no bacon flavor from that experiment, just some added fat. Lol! Thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper!
This was pretty good but the meat was a bit bland. If I make it again I would marinate the chicken first in some garlic with salt and pepper.
We really liked the flavor of this chicken. Thanks for sharing.
This meal turned out great. It was my first time cooking stuffed chicken. I made a few changes...I used chive and onion cream cheese for convenience then added mozz cheese to the mixture as well as black pepper. I cooked the bacon on the stove top to have it crisp and then I rolled the entire chicken breast in roasted garlic bread crumbs. It was fantastic and my boyfriend loved it! I served with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus.
ABSOLUTLEY PERFECT. GREAT TASTE, EASY TO MAKE, WHOLE FAMILY LOVES IT.
I use extra butter atop. And, I marinated the chicken first too. I'm thinking I'll make this again soon. Thanks!
Loved it! It is now a regular at my house. Loved it so much my kids are begging for me to make it again. I think the only thing I would do is try to brown the chicken a little by covering it in bread crumbs or cheese.
I have made this recipe many times over the last couple years. It always tastes so good at the start of the cold weather! Last night I decided to mix it up a little bit and maybe some of you might like this as well. I started by cubing my bacon and chicken (fairly small) and frying separately. While they were cooking I mixed up the cream cheese. I then drained the bacon and set the chicken aside to cool a bit. I whipped out two cans of crescent rolls and proceeded to make something similar to a calzone. Each container of rolls makes 2 calzones out of 4 rectangles. Start our by separating the dough into 4 rectangles and make sure to pinch together the seams on both sides of the dough. On two rectangles spread the cream cheese mixture making sure to leave some room at the edges. Then sprinkle the top with bacon and then chicken. I then topped this off with a little bit of mozzarella cheese. After the filling is in place take the other rectangles and place it on top. Pinch together all along the sides making sure there is a good seal. Open the other container of cresent rolls and repeat. When you are finished you should have 4 “calzones”. Bake at 375 for 10 to 13 minutes. This was so yummy.
lovely even kids liked it! done it again since first one, a keeper for sure
My entire family was quite for dinner, Thank you it was Delicious!
Great recipe- changed it up a bit. Used 8 chicken tenderloins (could have used 10), coated them with butter, dipped them in Italian style breadcrumbs, spooned some of the mixture on one tenderloin and put another on top. Didn't use any toothpicks, didn't use any bacon. Baked for around 30 mins (didn't time it, just watched the chicken until it looked done). Came out fantastic. I also didn't exactly measure the chives or garlic, but I think I put a little extra then what was called for. I used pre-chopped garlic in oil. It was delicious. Will definitely make again!!!
I just used Alouette and maple flavored bacon. This wasn't too bad. Might make again.
Changed a bit and LOVED IT !!!!! Like other people mentioned I used 1/2 cream cheese 1/2 feta cheese, I chopped 1 scallion and added that to it, i used reg bacon (its what i had on hand) cooked chopped and added to mixture stuffed the chicken then once in the pan i sprayed the chicken with pam spray sprinkled with bread crumbs sprayed it again and baked ...turned out wonderful definitly a keeper already in my cookbook !
We LOVED this. I admit, I changed it up, merely because I was going to make chicken cordon bleu, only to discover my husband had eaten the ham. So I ran to allrecipes to see what I could make with what I had in the house. This was it! A total winner, and a great recipe that can easily accommodate whatever ingredients you have on hand. Thanks for sharing!
5 star. And wrap it in a piece of bacon.
I thought this recipe was very tasty, however I think next time I make it I might add in some cheddar cheese for extra flavor.
The only thing I did differently was to use fresh chives. If I were to make it again, though, I would dip it in egg and Panko crumbs for a bit of a crunch. But anyway, this was very rich and satisfying. Thanks!
This was absolutely delicious, my family loved it!! Followed the recipe and added mozzarella to the cream cheese mixture. Also added spinach when stuffing, and baked longer.
I gave this recipe a five star rating because of its versatility. The great thing about a dish like this is you can substitute ingredients you have on hand, or things you really like, in place of things you don't have/like, and it will still turn out great. Below are the changes I made to the recipe: I added way more garlic and took out the bacon (I only had the microwave stuff.) To the cream cheese mixture I added Italian seasoning, seasoned salt and finely chopped walnuts. I made a separate mixture of panko bread crumbs, chopped walnuts and garlic salt, put a thin layer on the bottom of the baking dish, then placed the stuffed breasts on top, then sprinkled with the remaining bread crumb mixture. My husband had a stomach ache and wasn't hungry for much - he ate his whole breast and probably would have eaten the rest of mine had I let him. Next time, I will try adding blue or feta cheese to the cream cheese mixture for an even more flavorful experience!
This was THE easiest and best quick chicken recipe I have ever tried. My boyfriend thought it took a lot of time to prepare.
Amazing!!! the chicken came out perfectly and the stuffing is just to die for!! a gourmet recipe thats as easy as grilled cheese!!
These were delicious. I used a little bit of a mayo and butter mixture (about 3tsp of each) to spread over the chicken and bacon then sprinkled some parm cheese on top before baking. The mayo/butter mixture with the parm makes the bacon nice and crispy and creates a yummy thin layer of crust.
This was very good, but when I make it again (and I will) I will ad some garlic and spice it up a little. It just needs a little tweek to be 5 star. The wife and kids all though it was great.
This was wonderful! Kind of feel guilty eating it, as it's so decadent and not the healthiest of recipes, but I quickly got over that! I chopped up some bacon and fried it, and folded it into the chive and cream cheese mixture. What can I say...I love bacon, so this recipe was definitely for me! If you have a bacon lover, this is a MUST. Well...even if you don't have a bacon lover, it's a MUST!
This entree was scrumptious! I used this recipe for a dinner party, and it was a hit! The only ingredient that I added was garlic pepper (a dash) to each breast. Everyone asked for the recipe!
Amazing! I'm not one for chives, so I mixed a cheese/garlic powder mix in with the cream cheese, and added finely chopped fresh spinach to the mix as well, and I wraped the entire chicken in bacon to hold the mix in. Then I added minced garlic and parsley in with the butter that I poured over top, and poured over again half way thru. PERFECT! I found my new favorite dish!
Made this recipe per the instructions and WOW was it good, my family loved it and it was so tender and flavorful. I did dust lightly with adobo seasoning so that the chicken wasn't totally plain going into the oven. The cream cheese chive garlic mixture was absolutely simple and perfect. This recipe will be in rotation for a long time to come!!
This dish was very good but very HEAVY!
This was a hit with my family! I did as suggested, and did half cream cheese and half mozzarella, it was great! I also suggest using prosciutto ham instead of bacon, I've done both ways and the prosciutto gives it much more flavor. Have made this many times, and will continue to do so!
I made this recipe as something quick for tonights dinner. I read the reviews, however, decided to follow the exact recipe. I feel as though there was only a slight flavor to the inside mixture. The chicken was juicy, but overall the recipe was bland. I wil definitely try this recipe again, adding some bread crumbs, maybe cooked bacon in small pieces and coat the chicken before.
I wasn't terribly impressed with this one. The chicken was a bit bland, but that's probably because I left off the bacon. I might try it again with the bacon and add some herbs and more garlic.
I used the basic concept, but I used onion & chive cream cheese with minced garlic and other seasonings, rolled with one piece of bacon each way so the cream cheese didn't run out. I sprinkled the top with basil and rosemary, and shredded cheese in the last 5 minutes. My hubby loved it, and I thought it was good, but not quite 5 stars for me.
I left out the bacon and this was amazing. Exactly what I was looking for.
MADE THIS AGAIN IT WAS THAT GOOD! MY COMPANY MADE PIGS OF THEMSELVES EATING LAST NIGHT! OH MY GOODNESS! This was wonderful, I did change the recipe just alittle. I added in about 1 cup of shredded mozzerella cheese (bad spelling) to the cream cheese mixture and them just before the chicken was ready to come out, I added a a thick slice of mozz.cheese and melted it. It was really good, please try this recipe, you really can't be disappointed!
Very yummy, very easy! I was only cooking for the 2 of us, so here's what I did. Mixed up some light crm cheese (no where close to an 8 oz pkg, just a couple of scoops) with some fresh chives and a clove of garlic. Added a bit of fresh parm and grated mozz to the mix. I did sautee my turkey bacon for a couple minutes per side and then wrapped around my stuffed chicken. Baked covered for 30 mins and then uncovered for 8-10. Turned out great, nice flavour and not too much filling (some people had noted how 'rich' it was). Very adaptable recipe!
Amazing. SO AMAZING. I left out the chives, and added onion powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Also left off the bacon and butter. Dipped in eggs and Italian seasoned bread crumbs.
Good base recipe. Added a lot of additonal spices and ingredients to bring it up a notch. Yummy! Thank you for sharing!
I wanted to so much like this dish. I had made a similar dish but couldn't recall the recipe so I looked for something online and found this. Love cream cheese, bacon and chicken - how could I go wrong, right? Ugh. Preparation was simple. I added a little more garlic based on some of the reviews. Popped it in the oven and prepared all my side dishes. 30 minutes later, I cut into a piece to make sure it was finished because 30 mins on 350 did not seem like enough time to me but what do I know. My dad took a bite and spit it out. It wasn't done. Back in the oven for another 15 minutes. So let's start by saying if you're getting breasts to butterfly, pound them first because this is not nearly enough time in the oven to cook thoroughly. The bacon was another issue - parts of it was done, parts were not. Yuck. I'd suggest starting with partially cooked bacon or putting it in the broiler to finish it off. Even after another 15 mins in the oven, my dad couldn't eat it - I guess the thought of the uncooked chicken just wouldn't get out of his head. I picked the bacon off mine and it was just not great. I think the review of putting breadcrumbs on it is right on! It was such a disappointment and to add to the fact that it was dinner for my parent's anniversary just added insult to injury. The dish has a lot of potential but too much wrong with it as is.
Boy am I glad to find this recipe. I am cooking a dish very similar to this right now and while it's baking in the oven, I've looking online to see how long I should bake them when I ran into this recipe. How perfect! My cream cheese mixture had chopped cooked bacon and chopped green onions. I didn't think of the garlic though. I'll have to try it with that next time. I did season the chicken on the outside with sea salt and paprika. It looks delicious and smells delicious. An hour later.... Dinner was delicious. The man loved it. I loved it. This is definitely a repeat meal.
Mmmmmm!! Very tasty!! I would omit all the butter, though. Maybe just brush the tops with butter or a little bit of olive oil.
I thought this was wonderful, especially because I eat low-carb style. I substituted 2 chopped scallions because I didn't have chives, and it was very good. Also, since I really didn't want the cheese to melt out while baking, I used extra strips of bacon to securely wrap the chicken. A+++++++ Thank you!
This chicken is soooo easy and soooo tasty! My boyfriend loved it and wanted more!
I used onion and chive cream cheese, and stuffed by butterflying the breasts. Great flavors!
What a great recipe! The cream cheese mixed with the chive is extremely good. I made a few alterations since I didn't have sliced bacon available. I replaced it with crumbled bacon and added it to the cream cheese / chive mixture. I also added one finely chopped jalapeno pepper to the mixture and the taste of it was very good. I sprinkled a bit of lemon-pepper on top of the stuffed chicken breast! What a fanastic taste!
This is a great recipe. Taste is wonderful but as others suggested I cut back on the butter, also used real bacon. Will definitely make this again!
Solid recipe- I seasoned the chicken breasts with creole// added a little shredded mozzarella and parmesan to the cream cheese and precooked my turkey bacon in the oven. Overall it was great!!
This is a recipe that I made about a year ago. It isn't an everday-er, but it had a great taste with the chives, cheese, bacon and chicken. it is a keeper. thanks
I didn't care much for this dish. It was easy to make, but just didn't taste great.
