Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive presentation, rich and delicious! Perfect Sunday dinner! I substituted 1/2 Greek yogurt for 1/2 of the cream cheese, and it was still rich and delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious flavor, simple ingredients This dish will be made again and again! Simple ingredients and came together quickly. I used fileted chicken breasts, spreading the cream cheese mixture over it and then rolled it up. I then wrapped in two strips of bacon and secured with a toothpick. Another tip - for even cooking all the way round (and crispy bacon) cook on a baking rack over the 13x9 pan or baking sheet to catch drippings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bacon wrapped deliciousness This was SO delicious! I didn't actually cut slits in the chicken, I just put the cream cheese mixture on top and wrapped the bacon around it to hold it in. Broiling it at the end was great to crisp up the bacon.
