Bacon Wrapped Chicken

With Cheese

BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken stuffed with cheese uses only 4 ingredients to make a sticky, sweet, and savory chicken recipe. Oven baked chicken breasts are stuffed with oozing melted cheddar cheese, wrapped in crispy bacon, smothered in BBQ sauce.

Ingredients Needed:

Bacon | Chicken Breasts Sharp Cheddar Cheese BBQ Sauce Salt and Pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay 8 slices of bacon on it. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until about halfway baked.



Turn oven down to 375°. Butterfly the chicken and place cheese on one side, then fold the top over it. Season the top of closed chicken with salt and pepper.



Transfer the stuffed chicken breasts to the baking sheet. Lay the pieces of bacon over the top of each chicken breast, wrapping bacon around tucking underneath.  Brush half the BBQ sauce all over top and sides.



Bake for 15 minutes. Baste with more BBQ sauce. Bake for 10-15 minutes more. Serve warm, and enjoy!



Make this low-carb/keto by omitting the BBQ sauce or using a low carb/low sugar sauce.
