Bacon, Cream Cheese, Cheddar Chicken

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 4 oz or 6 oz cream cheese (cold, refrigerated, and sliced into 8 slices)
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  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.
