Bacon Wrapped Chicken with Cream Cheese and Green Onion Stuffing (low carb)

Here is an easy dish that is sure to go over well!

Each chicken breast has approximately 3.5 g. of net carbs.

Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese [I always use the Philadephia brick]
garlic powder and seasoning salt

2 medium diced green onions
4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, butterflied
8 slices of bacon
Needed: Slotted broiler pan

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and diced green onion and then divide the mixture into 4 parts.
Season the butterflied chicken with garlic powder and lightly with seasoning salt.
Place 1 part of the cream cheese mix into the center of each butterflied chicken breast. Fold the chicken over the cream cheese and wrap with 2 slices of bacon per piece of chicken.
Place the chicken on a slotted broiler pan so the bacon grease drains when cooking.  Place in the oven on one of the lower racks (I used the second from the bottom).
Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven then broil on high an additional 5 minutes or until the bacon starts to crisp and the chicken is fully cooked (180 degrees).I served this with my easy crock pot asparagus with garlic and lemon:  http://www.lowcarbcrock.com/2011/12/low-carb-crock-pot-asparagus/

  1. This looks great. I have a thing for stuffed chicken breasts. To me, chicken breasts are no good unless they are prepared with lots of cheese.

    What kind of onion is considered a green onion? I see red, sweet, Vandalia and scallions.

  3. I only used two chicken breast and I butterflied them and put in the cream cheese …wrapped them in bacon and put them in as directed….25 minutes? really? I am sorry but if they were thin sliced chicken breast maybe…I thinned mine out as best I could but they were not even close to being cooked….I had to put them on the stove and cook them a bit then wrapped them in foil and put them in the oven for 30 more minutes…I have never known chicken to cook that fast and you need your chicken to cook all the way thru…you do not mess with that…If I ever do this again I will get thin chicken breast…it was also very very messy to make…

    • If you read the directions – the cook time is 30 minutes. 25 minutes at 350 and 5 minutes in the broiler. You can Google it – that is pretty standard cook time for chicken breasts. Of course, cook time may vary given the size of the chicken and you should therefore cook to temperature for saftey. The pic shows my chicken breast that were fully cooked in 30 minutes, so you can see the size for reference. As for your comment about the messiness – that sounds personal. You slap some cream cheese in the middle of the chicken and then roll some bacon around it. Pretty simple.
