Pound them down, cover them with cream cheese, then roll them up with bacon an stab them with a tooth pick; this Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe is delicious, and not as hard to prepare as you would think looking at the picture. I have been meaning to make this recipe for quite awhile, and finally got around to it. What a great recipe for Super Bowl Sunday. There is not a lot of prep time or cooking time involved and your Super Bowl crowd will love it. I served this with fries and it was a delicious combination but I think it would go well with almost any side dish like mac and cheese or flavored rice.
Give this Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe a try and enjoy.
