Chicken Roulade, Let's Keep on Rolling!
I am a sucker for cream cheese. If you're trying to find a simple elegant way of making dinner, this recipe is sure to impress! It looks a lot fancier than your normal chicken dinner. I used turkey bacon for this since I really like the flavor and it's healthier for you. I'm sure it's good with regular bacon too.
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons dried chives
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, butterflied
4 slices turkey bacon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, chives, and garlic. Divide the mixture into 4 balls.
Place 1 cream cheese ball in the center of each butterflied chicken breast half. Fold the chicken over the cream cheese, wrap with a slice of turkey bacon, and secure with toothpicks. Arrange the chicken in a baking dish. Pour the butter over the chicken.
Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
