Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts
This is one of those recipes that looks quite impressive, but is actually very easy. So it's great to make for guests! The creamy, tangy cheese stuffing will have them wanting more, so be sure you throw an extra one or two on the grill -- they are sure to go! Do be careful when slicing the chicken breast to form a pocket, though. Take your time because it's easy to cut right through. Also, don't have the heat on your grill too high, otherwise the bacon will char.
Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breasts
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
4 teaspoons minced green onion
1 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
1 teaspoon black pepper
8 slices smoked bacon
1. Split each breast horizontally, making a pocket and leaving one edge intact. Set aside.
2. Combine cream cheese, green onion, tarragon, and black pepper. Spoon 1/4 cheese mixture into the pocket of each breast. Wrap each with 2 slices bacon and secure with toothpicks.
3. Cook over medium heat on the grill or under the broiler, about 10 minutes per side, or until bacon is crisp and chicken tests done.
