"Came out looking nothing like the picture but tasted great. It was a pain to put the cheese in so I just blotted it all over. Smoked my whole house up."
"Easy to prepare, and very tasty to eat. My wife is pregnant so I wanted to make her something savory and interesting but without being too heavy, so I used plain cream cheese. She loved it, and said I can make it again! The chicken was perfectly cooked and moist. After some experimentation I found the best way to wrap the bacon was to lay the strips out, and position the rolled up chicken breast over them and then just pull the bacon over, for the most even wrap. Highly recommended recipe, even for husbands doing their bit in the kitchen!!"
"This is easy and delicious. I think it's missing a little bit of acidity. That would be my only critique. I will be making this again using different savory cream cheeses."
"If you find the chicken to be dry try using a white wine sauce, tastes beautiful. But I use garlic and herb Philadelphia instead. But it might be an idea to wrap the chicken and bacon in cling film and let it settle in the fridge for an hour or so, or just make them in the morning and just pop them in the oven in the evening. Very nice served with mustard mashed potato."
"Absolutely delicious, fancy enough to serve to company, easy enough to make anytime. After I started making it I realized my cream cheese was spinach and artichoke but it still tasted great, so you could use any savory cream cheese you liked or had on hand. Will definately make this again."
