  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 (4 ounces each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 slices thin cut bacon
  • paprika to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped


  • In a bowl, combine cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Form into about 2 to 3-inch length and 1/2-inch thickness (make sure they will fit the cut you make on the chicken). 
  • Wrap each cheese log in plastic film and freeze for about 10 to 15 minutes or until firm.
  • Trim chicken of any excess fat. Make a small slit on top of meat, but not cutting all the way through.
  •  Remove the plastic film and insert the cheese log into the slit. 
  • Wrap chicken with bacon and place in a single layer on a cast iron skillet or baking dish. 
  • Season with paprika to taste and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
  • Bake in a 400 F oven for about 30 to 35 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center of chicken reads 165 F. 
  • Broil for about 1 to 2 minutes or until bacon crisps. Serve hot.
