- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained

- 2. Wrap three bacon strips around each piece of chicken; secure with toothpicks. Place in a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and bacon is crisp. Discard toothpicks before serving. Yield: 2 servings.

Reviews for Chicken Wrapped in Bacon
"This was just discussing! What a waist of my time, effort and ingredients. Couldn't eat, even my 11 year old could not eat. The cream cheese on the middle makes you want to… well you get the picture."
"Wonderful and easy! Great for company, too."
"Excellent, all the family love it. I omit the chilies."
"This is delicious! I plan to make this next time we have guests over for dinner. I doubled this to feed my family of four and used turkey bacon to cut some of the fat."
