Garlic bacon and cheese stuffed chicken breast

June 4, 2017

This dish is easy, filling and so delicious! I like creating recipes that don’t require a lot of time in the kitchen or call for ingredients you just don’t have.. Chicken is what we eat the most in my house so this stuffed chicken breast was a win win ย because who doesn’t like bacon & cheese ๐Ÿ˜‰ It takes very little time to prepare and paired with a salad you have yourself a nice low point meal. The garlic bacon cream cheese filling is the stand out in this recipe, I am sure it will be a new favorite. Serves 4 at 8 smart points each.

    Looks yummy, but I have a question, when do you add the parmesan? I saw it listed in the ingredients section but not in the recipe.

    So yummy! Made it for dinner and it was loved by all. Would be great for company. I used fat free cream cheese and it was still wonderful.

    Can you substitute the cream cheese with anything else?

      I guess you could use a different cheese if you want? Cottage, riccota?? You want something creamy, maybe even a plain greek yogurt

    This was great,
    The whole family loved it.
    I added a little paprika and chilli to the cheese stuffing mix which bought a bit of heat. Will be defantly cooking it again ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
