Best of all you can pick and choose your flavour of cream cheese to suit your preference. Herb and Garlic is what I like to use, but sometime when shopping, they didn’t have it as an option.

So, I have chosen another flavour from time to time and it’s always been delicious. It’s such a simple recipe, we love to enjoy this even if it’s not a busy weeknight. Yet recipes like these were made for weeknight meals, as they are made in no time.

As for sides to this stuffed chicken breast, the options are endless. Rice, potatoes, salad and seasonal vegetables – this is a meal that you can make all year long and will even make your picky eaters happy.

    1. I agree, Tiffany. I never attempted to ‘stuff a meat’ before {sounds so odd}, I always assumed it was hard. Now I’m brave enough to try more ‘stuffing’. lol

  1. Awesome! This looks delicious. I just recently started stuffing meat also. The possibilities are endless. Try pork chops sometime. It’s actually very easy! You’ll wonder why you never did it before.

    1. Oh, I like the sounds of that!
      How would it taste without the Walnuts, Curt?
      {allergies in the family…}

      1. That is unfortunate. The walnuts are my favorite part in the stuffing because of the crunch. Can you substitute walnuts with soy nuts? That might work. But then, I wouldn’t take chances with allergies.

        As for flavor though, the walnuts probably wouldn’t change much.

        1. I’ll have to think up a substitue. So often I see a recipe that I want to try, and it has nuts in the ingredients. It’s hard to tell if it’s really ‘needed’ or not…

  2. thanks for sharing this awesome sounding recipe.
    everything taste better with bacon, eh.

  3. This looks so tasty! I have tried every one of your recipes and I have loved every one. Although I love bacon it has to be real crispy so I usually do not use it for main dishes but this looks so good and you have never let me down in the taste department, we are going to try it! Thanks for sharing these great recipes, always nice to have variety:)

    1. Hi Doris!
      The underside doesn’t get real crispy of course, but the top and sides, yes! I like crispier bacon too, so I was happy that it came out as so! Yum!

      1. We have made this twice! Yum it is so good, I love the taste and was surprised my husband did too, he’s such a meat and potato person! Thanks for the recipe:)

  4. I made it yesterday and the recipe went to my favorites. Thanks!
    Though, I’m not sure about 400C… misprint? I made it 200C and it worked perfectly.

  6. oohhh tammi you are now a kitchen goddess!! this recipe sounded so good i had to try it out, my god it was so friggin awesome!!
    my note is not to add the salt…bacon is salty to start and to use a flavored bacon (smoked would be my favorite).
    you’ll really laugh that my husband has a friend (that you know) that maybe coming over one night for dinner soon, anyways my husband is telling me that i have to make this for his friend….then i told him where the recipe came from, lol!!

  23. This looks absolutely delicious and combines my favorite ingredients into one! I mean come on who dosent love bacon and chicken! lol Great recipe! Something I will be trying this weekend!

  24. You had me at bacon wrapped! I’ve never tried to make stuffed chicken before but this recipe tasty and not super intimidating. I like the idea of switching up the cream cheese flavours for an extra bit of variety as well

  25. I have turkey bacon do you think it would work with that or should I stick to reg bacon?

  26. so last night I made the chicken, I dint have a mallet so I took one of my hubby’s from garage lol. pounded a bit too hard couple of holes in chicken, then realized I didnt have any cream cheese, sooo I took my lite laughing cow wedges (4) and mixed them with garlic and basil. stuffed as best I could with holes in chicken and held them together with skewers. Went to get bacon (turkey) thats all I had and saw that it had been eaten. needless to say it was baconless but it did taste really good and we are having it for leftovers tonight.

  27. OOO – Like cheesecake for Homer Simpson with stuffing and bacon added….sweet. I’m printing this one to try on long week-end.

  28. This may be worth giving a try! My fiancΓ© doesn’t like chicken breasts plain but loves bacon so he would likely love this!

  29. I did make them but I really need to get a mallet for meat. I didnt have one so I used my hubby’s tool mallet and what a mess. end result didnt look pretty but it still tasted yummy

  30. That looks amazing! I bet the bacon probably keeps the chicken pretty moist. Will have to give this recipe a try!

  31. Husband and I love bacon, and he especially would love this but with the added nitrates in bacon we have had to give it up for health reasons

  32. This sounds delicious. I like the combo of chicken and bacon together and you could switch up the filling.

  33. I have been looking for an easy bacon wrapped chicken recipe. My hubby is gonna love this!!!!!!!!! thanks !

  34. This recipe sounds so delicious that I am determined to make it soon. My husband is getting tired of the Chicken Breast with Spices and I know he will probably love this dish. I know I will!

  35. I make a similar version using regular cream cheese and a pat of butter in each breast. I serve with Knorr’s Peppercorn gravy..delicious! Very anxious to try it with the herb and garlic cream cheese…bet it will be the new favourite! Thank you for the recipe!
