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 Β because who doesn’t like bacon & cheese πŸ˜‰ 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.

    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

      I used laughing cow cheese when I realized there was no cream cheese. Still came out delicious.

    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!

      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

    How can 1/2 tablespoonful bacon fat sautΓ© 4 chicken breast ?

    • Drizzle
      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
