Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Spirals Recipe

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Spirals Recipe

In her kitchen in Ponca City, Oklahoma, LaDonna Reed spreads chicken breasts with a creamy filling, rolls them up, wraps them in bacon and bakes them. For a spicier version, she suggests that you try using sliced jalapeno peppers instead of green chilies.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 bacon strips
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt, optional
  • 1/4 cup canned chopped green chilies
  • 1-1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp; drain on paper towels. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Sprinkle with seasoned salt if desired.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the chilies, cream cheese and garlic. Spread over one side of each chicken breast. Roll up and tuck ends in. Wrap each with two bacon strips; secure with toothpicks.
  • 3. Place in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Discard toothpicks. Yield: 2 servings.
