Bacon Chicken Roll-Ups

I get many requests for these. I love it because it's so simple, but looks like I spent the whole day preparing it. —Sandi Guettler, Bay City, Michigan
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 12 bacon strips
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 medium sweet onion, halved and cut into slices
  • Dash salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • Meanwhile, flatten chicken to 1/8-in. thickness. Spread cream cheese down the center of each chicken breast; top with onion. Roll up from a long side; tuck ends in. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap two bacon strips around each piece of chicken; secure with toothpicks.
  • Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake until a thermometer reads 165°, 35-40 minutes. Discard toothpicks.

    I thought this was okay but not great. Pretty bland in my opinion.

    These are easy to make and very good. Next time I will try the Garlic and Chive Cream Cheese. I've made them a head of time too; and then just popped them in the oven when it was time to eat.

    I know I've written a review for these before, but all reviews seem to have disappeared?!?! Anyway, these are fantastic. I often make with a garlic and chive cream cheese. These are company pleasers and very simple. Our family loves them.

    I don't like onions so I don't put them in mine and it still turns out really good, I make my husbands with the onions and he loves it.

    Fantastic and simple. Just made two simple changes which I will do again. Had herb & garlic cream cheese in the fridge, so used that. If I don't have that handy next time I'll put garlic and herbs in myself. Also I caramelized the onions with a bit of brown sugar in the bacon drippings. Delish and yummy enough for company.
