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 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sorry I since updated it, it is added to the bread crumb mixture

  2. 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.

  3. I love this recipe. Have made it twice doe family and guest and everyone loves it. So moist and easy.

      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.

        Good call ๐Ÿ™‚ I love laughing cow! Glad you enjoyed it

  4. Can’t wait to try this! Also the salad in picture is the recipe on your site? That looks delicious as well.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hope you enjoy it Cindy, no recipe for the salad just threw some stuff together lol

  5. 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‘

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

    • Drizzle Reply

      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. Iโ€™m not sure what Iโ€™m doing wrong! Any tips? I canโ€™t wait to make this though!

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  10. I am making this for dinner today, I will let you know how it turns out…so far my kitchen smells fantastic…hoping it taste as good as it smells

  11. Just made this and it is so good I stopped eating to comment! Love It!

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  12. Made this tonight, it was delicious!!! Thank you again…… you really should think about putting all your recipes in a recipe book and selling them. I would be first in line. Tomorrow will be the other stuffed chicken recipe you have๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Stacey, so glad you enjoyed the chicken, I really do want to have a cookbook one day, just not knowing where to start is the hard part ๐Ÿ™ but one day hopefully ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      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?

    Kate,
    I just tried this and it was absolutely delicious. I just started WW again and I have to say….with food like this, Iโ€™m wondering if I will really lose weight. I can do this for life. Thank you for sharing. I have signed up to receive your emails.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Cathy, thank you so much for your kind words, so glad you enjoyed the chicken, it is one of my favorites! And yes losing weight does not mean eating boring food ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck on your journey!

  15. I love this recipe. I make it with turkey bacon and use light margarine e instead of the bacon grease. Delicious!

      Ha best comment ever!!!! So glad you all enjoyed it ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing

  21. 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?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Laurie, no that reads 4 6oz chicken breast, not 4-6 oz

  22. Disregard my last silly question. It’s not 4-6 ounces, it’s 4 six ounce pieces. Sorry.

  25. Oh, wow. This was amazing.

    I used a mixture of light cream cheese, laughing cow spread and allouette garlic and herb cheese (because I didnโ€™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! Iโ€™m already so excited for the leftovers tomorrow!
