Chicken

Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Here it is, another Friday night, another night have trying to figure out what to cook. Not wanting to cook the same thing for the millionth time. I had previously seen some recipes on Facebook and Pinterest about stuffing chicken breasts with various things. My son Alex is visiting for the weekend so I had to make something that I know he will at least try to eat. I found this recipe for cream cheese stuffed chicken.

I found this recipe to be fairly simple to make. As with any other recipe you can revise it to your liking or needs. The original recipe called for onions but I used onion powder instead.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 4 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 2-3 strips of bacon, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon or more parsley (fresh or dried)
  • 1 small onion (I used 1 tablespoon of onion powder)
  • dash of garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste

Of course you need to heat the oven to 400 F

Directions

  • If you are using onions, you will need to chop it up along with the fresh parsley. This is another reason why I used onion powder. I also used dried parsley that is already cut up. Saves time and energy.
  • Mix onion, parsley, bacon and spices with the cream cheese. I also added shredded cheese to my mixture.
  • Cut a fairly deep slit lengthwise down the the middle of each chicken breast.
  • Spread the 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture in each breast.
  • Bake chicken for at least 30 to 35 minutes.

I served my Cream cheese stuffed chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and corn. I also sprinkled the top of the chicken with some Tony Chachere Cajun season to help give it some flavor.
