Bacon, Cream Cheese, Cheddar Chicken

Smokey, cheesey bites of juicy chicken to go with your favourite veg dish.

Original recipe here.


- 1 tablespoon olive oil

4 chicken breasts (use 4 thin chicken breasts, or use 2 large chicken breasts, sliced in half, horizontally)

salt and pepper

- 170 g cream cheese , cold, refrigerated, and sliced into 8 slices

8 strips bacon , cooked, chopped

1 cup Cheddar cheese , shredded


1. Preheat the oven to 200 C.

2. Grease the bottom of the casserole dish with olive oil. I used the the oval casserole dish measured 13 inches x 9 inches x 4 inches deep.

3. Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish. Note about chicken: use 4 thin chicken breasts, or use 2 large thick chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally each to make 4 thin chicken breasts.

4. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

5. Top with cream cheese. Cream cheese should be cold, right out of the fridge, sliced into 8 thin slices.

6. Top with chopped cooked bacon (drained from fat).

7. Top with shredded Cheddar cheese.

8. Bake, uncovered, for about 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
