Cream Cheese Chicken

I’ve posted recipes before and as you all know, I usually use pictures. I don’t cook with exact measurements so it’s difficult to give out recipes. Cream Cheese Chicken is an idea that developed out of a snack Tom had at a party once. The hostess took chicken and placed a bit of cream cheese in the middle, wrapped a piece of bacon around it and then baked. I decided to try it as a meal and added an easy sauce. This is one of my family’s favorite dishes. If you try it, let me know.

First you fillet a piece of chicken breast, add a bit of salt, pepper and parsley. Cut a slice of cream cheese to fit down the middle.
Cover the cream cheese with the sides of the chicken.
Take a slice of bacon and wrap it around the chicken. If it’s a big piece it might require two pieces of bacon. Don’t be stingy.
Stick toothpicks on the ends to make sure they don’t open up.
Place the chicken in a pan with some water. Bake at 350 for about 30 – 45 minutes until chicken is cooked.
Remove chicken from pan and place under the broiler. Be very careful and watch the chicken. You want your bacon to brown, but not to burn. Turn the chicken and brown the other side.
Finely chop half a small onion and place it in a sauce pan with butter, salt and pepper. Cook it until the onion starts to become a bit translucent.
Add a can or two of Cream of Chicken soup.
Slowly add a little bit of water to the pan until it turns into a sauce consistency.
Remove the toothpicks and place chicken in a pan and cover with sauce. Bake chicken at 350 for about 20 minutes or so.
