Stuffed Cream Cheese Chicken

My hubby sent me a message with a picture of this chicken and said make this!  And it only had the listed ingredients.  Of course he would send me something to try that was wrapped in bacon.  This was delicious.  And you can’t go wrong with chicken stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon.  Everything is better wrapped in bacon right? 🙂  The family loved it but I did feel like the cream cheese needed a little more to it.  I think the next time that I make this I am going to add an italian seasoning packet or something…  what do you think that I should add?  It just needed something else and I can’t quite think of it.  I am going to have to do some experimenting the next time that I make this!  

Rating: 3 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Review:  This was amazing but I am going to try to add something else to the cream cheese mixture the next time I make it.

Stuffed Cream Cheese Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, partially cooked
1.  Partially cook your strips of bacon, about 5 minutes on each side and set aside.
2.  Wash the chicken breasts.  I cut my chicken in half making them more like tenders.  Flatten the chicken by pounding them out to be about 1/4 inch thick.  
3.  Mix cream cheese and green onion together and spread 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture onto each of the flattened chicken breasts.
4.  Roll up the chicken pieces and wrap them with the strip of bacon.  Secure with a toothpick.
5.  Place the chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 30 minutes.  Broil the top the last 5 minutes to crisp the bacon.

  1. I am going to add dill to the cream cheese and see how that goes…or maybe a sliver of jalapeno?

  2. You can add some Parmesan, black pepper and nutmeg to the cream cheese, it also works with the stuffed jalapeños. I’m trying this recipe tonight.Thank you!

  3. Totally in LOVE with these, Alyssa! My mouth is watering already. Making them next week for sure!!

  4. I would add green chiles. I have done something with Sun dried tomatoes and rosemary. I love these basic recipes that you can customize to your family’s taste.

  5. I would add some garlic powder or minced garlic, maybe a little salt. Sounds great though!

  6. Maybe mix some shredded cheese in with the cream cheese?

  7. Sounds yummy. I think ranch dressing mix would be good with the cream cheese.

  8. This chicken sounds excellent! I bet it’s super flavorful! Yum!

  9. Sounds delicious! You could try buying flavored cream cheese to stuff them chicken!

  10. I saw something like this with jelapenos mixed in so it was like jelapenos popper chicken! Also i would suggest stuffing with cream cheese crab dip…that I’ve done wrapped in bacon and its deadly good!

  11. I have made something similar with banana pepper slices in with the cream cheese…so good!

  12. I would put spinach, garlic, & maybe some roasted red peppers- all mixed into the cream cheese prior to stuffing… Mmmmm!!!

  13. Lynda Haight says:

    I will probably add an egg yolk, italian bread crumbs, parsley, and some romano cheese. <3

  14. Try adding a packet of dried ranch dressing… I use it in stuffed jalapenos and it’s great!

  15. I think using some of the ingredients for Jalapeno Popper Dip would be great in this. Which are 1/2 c. shredded parmesan cheese, 1 c. colby jack, 2 8-oz cream cheese, 1 c. mayo, 1- 40z. can chopped jalapenos and 1-4oz canned chopped green chiles. I think this is worth a try since everyone loves this dip and it is baked. With the addition of your recipe and this one I think it would be to die for. I think I will give this a try tonight.

  16. Jessica says:

    I mix Salsa in my cream cheese. Its amazing!

  17. What about using a green onion dip mix? That has some extra spice to it. Also put some mozerrella cheese on top when broiling.

  18. I’m gunna give it a whirl and add some chirizo sausage

  19. Amanda Risher says:

    I’m going to try this, but I’ll add Greek seasoning and some diced/minced mushrooms. If I had the money for real crabmeat or lobster I’d do that.

  20. When I make it…I add some sautéed poblano pepper slices. Couldn’t remember the baking time and temp…so thank you.

  21. I have made something very similar to this. I add grated cheese to the cream cheese, and either stuff the mixture in 1/2 of a Jalepeno, or dice up the peppers and incorporate them into the cream cheese mixture. During the last 5 -10 minutes of baking, I also add a sweet barbecue sauce such as sweet baby ray;s on top. My family loves it!

  22. m going to try this, but I’ll add Greek seasoning and some diced/minced mushrooms. If I had the money for real crabmeat or lobster I’d do that.

  23. When you finish the recipe with –

    Broil the top for 5 minutes….(Im a little inexperienced in the kitchen…) Do you mean, put in bottom of stove? Do I have to adjust my stove to a BROIL setting? Thanks for your post!
    Cant wait to try it.

  24. Krystal says:

    I’m going to try with the herb & garlic cream cheese 🙂

  25. Loretta says:

    I make this but I put finely minced jalapenos in the cream cheese and use black pepper bacon to wrap it. I also make it with tenderized deer steak.

  26. Kristie says:

    I added 2 oz of blue cheese to the cream cheese and chives. Loved it! Thank you for the recipe. It is a keeper.

  27. Alyssa, I made this for dinner tonight and it was fab! A definite keeper. 🙂

  28. I’ve made this or a variation on this recipe many times. Always delicious! Try garlic, fresh herbs and lemon zest in the cream cheese. Yumm!

  29. In which direction do you roll the chicken?

  30. I thin it would be fantastic with cream cheese and chives. It comes all prepared!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. It’s awesome with a pesto.
    Either basil or sun dried tomato

  32. That looks delicious . I think I will add some chopped garlic and marinated artichock hearts to the cream cheese. I know what’s for dinner tonight!

  33. I have made this several times and I use the Chive and Onion flavored cream cheese! It taste great and works like a charm!

  34. Leslie Powell says:

    I have a recipe like this. In the cream cheese I would add a couple of chopped jalapeno peppers and some grated Colby jack cheese along with the chives. The recipe I have you put the bacon chopped up into the cream cheese and then lightly bread the breast after you roll it up, but wrapping in it in bacon sounds delicious!

  35. I’ve had these with the cream cheese mixed with a packet of ranch dip mix. Very tasty.

  36. Do you happen to have the nutritional info like number of carbs, calories etc?

  37. Made this tonight. I added some ranch dressing powder and Lawry’s seasoned salt to the cream cheese with the onions. I broiled them on low until the chicken was almost cooked through, then on high until bacon crisped. I then transferred them to an iron skillet on the stove to crisp bacon on bottom. Next time, I will probably bake them at high heat in the skillet to brown the bottom first, then broil to crisp the top. Very tasty! Thanks for the recipe.

    I’ve made this for years. Just saw this post and thought I’d add my 2 cents.
    Season the cream cheese with salt green onion and tarragon. Marinate the chicken in lemon juice for 20 min then wrap it all up like you do. Pour the leftover lemon juice on top of the bacon wrapped chicken then bake and serve over Uncle Ben’s wild rice use the drippings from the baked chicken to drizzle over the rice. So yummy. One of my families favorite!!

  39. KatharineK says:

    Add tarragon salt and green onion to the cream cheese. And marinate the chicken in lemon juice before you wrap it up. Drizzle the drippings over the chicken and serve with Uncle Bens wild rice. This is a recipe I’ve been making for years

  40. Maybe mix fresh spinach and a little bit of garlic with the cream cheese.
