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  because who doesn’t like bacon & cheese 😉 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 4 smart points each using the new freestyle SP program.

  4. Whisk your egg and egg whites together in a small bowl, lay out your flour on a flat plate, in a small bowl mix your bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, ½ tsp of garlic and 1 tsp italian seasoning and spread out on another flat plate.
  5. In a small bowl mix together your cream cheese, 1 tsp garlic powder, crumbled bacon and shredded mozzarella cheese.
  6. Divide mixture into your 4 chicken breast spreading out to cover (see picture) fold breast closed.

    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.

    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

    Do you think this could be cooked in the air fryer? What about adding spinach and sun-dried tomatoes? Thank you

      I’m not familiar with the air fryer although I did just get one but it will be awhile till I can play around with it, I think you should be able to cook it in it, and sure you can add anything you want to it just be mindful of additional points

    This looks delicious! I am just starting out on the freestyle, and have a question about the points. When I add the nutritional info to the app/site to track my points, it calculates to 8 smart points. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong! Any tips? I can’t wait to make this though!

      Reply Drizzle January 27, 2018 at 1:51 pm

      Hi Meagan, the nutritional info will give you the points for the recipes as is, but on freestyle we don’t count the chicken, as you can see on my post it says 8 smart points, but that is before chicken was a zero point food, so now if you use the recipe builder on your app and enter this you should get 4 freestyle points

      Reply Drizzle February 26, 2018 at 8:09 pm

      You are just “searing” the chicken, you do not need much grease in the pan to do this, I have no problem just using the 1/2 Tbsp to lightly coat the pan

    I made this tonight and it was delicious! However, I listed your information on my ww app and it shows 8 points. Can you tell me how you’ve calculated 4 freestyle points? I’m currently following freestyle.

      Reply Drizzle May 16, 2018 at 1:06 pm

      Hi Here is the breakdown of points from my App, flour 2SP, breadcrumbs 2SP, Parmesan 1SP, cream cheese 9SP, center cut bacon 2SP and Trader Joe’s cheese 1SP (17SP, divided by 4 gives them a 4 point value) maybe your products were a different brand?

    I have one question. Is 4-6 ounces of chicken breast supposed to make 4 servings? So each serving size is approximately 1-1.5 ounces?

    Oh, wow. This was amazing.

    I used a mixture of light cream cheese, laughing cow spread and allouette garlic and herb cheese (because I didn’t have enough cream cheese) and I added a few green onions to the mix.

    I cooked them in the air fryer instead of the oven and they came out perfectly crispy and only took about 7 minutes to cook!

    This was SO FLAVORFUL! I’m already so excited for the leftovers tomorrow!
