A delicious and hearty meal made easy & quick. A bacon lovers delight and my husbands favourite dinner! Chicken is stuffed with cream cheese and chives and wrapped in bacon. I have also included my favourite green bean side dish which accompanies this meal perfectly. ENJOY : )

I agree with Syd about the prep time.....way off. Other than that I cut this down to two breasts and should have made one for the two of us. My chicken didn't really brown very well. I also cooked the bacon a little before wrapping around the chicken. My chicken turned out a little dry and a lot of the filling ran out, but it still was delicious. The green beans were very good with a little vinegar as diner added. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2011
