Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Are there any other words that could make your mouth water more than Cheese Stuffed Bacon?   I think not.  This ended up being a really great recipe.  I pieced it together from some things found off Pinterest.  Of course!   It's really good.  Family loved it.  It is easy.  What else could you ask for??

Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 pound bacon
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
garlic pepper

Lay the chicken breasts out on wax paper and flatten out with a heavy skillet or mallet.  Lay strips of bacon down and place the chicken breast on top of the bacon.   Season chicken breasts with garlic pepper and salt. 

Cut cream cheese into 12 equal squares.  Place three squares on each chicken breast and top with 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar.  Roll chicken up and wrap with 3 pieces of bacon.  Two width wise and one length wise.  Secure with toothpicks and place seam side down in baking dish. 

Bake at 400 for 45 minutes turning over half way through baking time.  Then turn on the broiler and crisp up bacon on both sides.  Watch closely.  Will only need a few minutes.

You could really stuff these with anything.  Any kind of cheese, spinach, nuts...  Use your imagination.  The cheese was nice and gooey and rich.  We served it with mashed cauliflower.  Even the 12 year old ate it!
