I bet you thought bacon was off limits as part of a diabetes diet? Well think again! Turkey bacon is fair game and we wrap it around a lean skinless chicken breast to make the most of these Cheesy Chicken Rolls.

What You'll Need

  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 4 slices turkey bacon

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. To flatten chicken breasts, place in resealable plastic bag and pound with rolling pin until chicken breasts are 1/4-inch thick.
     
  3. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, scallions, garlic powder, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Spoon equal amounts on each chicken breast. Roll up chicken breasts with cream cheese mixture. Wrap 1 slice bacon around each chicken roll and secure with toothpick.
     
  4. Place chicken rolls in prepared baking dish and bake 30 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I will try this. I think that I will use skinless, boneless thighs instead. I always have trouble getting the chicken breast pounded out to the desired thickness. Since the thighs have the bone removed it would be easy to just add the cream cheese mixture and wrap turkey bacon around. It might need to bake a little longer.

I can make a whole tray of these at once in the oven, but I think the serving size is too big. I think I'll wrap a piece of bacon on each end and when they're done, cut in the middle to have two portions. It's easier for smaller appetites and kids.

I added asparagus spears to the cream cheese mixture. Love the asparagus with cream cheese.

Sounds really yummy! Gonna try real soon.

I will try this on my husband, for i'm sure he will like this!
