How Long to Cook Chicken Wrapped in Bacon

Bacon wrapped chicken is easy to make and doesn’t take all that long to cook. I personally like to cook it at a higher temp to make sure the bacon gets nice and crisp while the inside stays juicy and delicious.

I cook this recipe at 190°C  for about 35 min.


Any sort of southwest seasoning (or even a tex mex style seasoning) will work perfectly in this recipe, so just use what you have on hand.  If you prefer less heat, you can substitute the jalapenos with sliced green onions.  Note:  This recipe makes 2 chicken breasts but can easily be doubled/tripled.


My personal favourite natural flavoring:



Bacon Wrapped Chicken

PREP TIME 10 minutes
COOK TIME 35 minutes
TOTAL TIME 45 minutes
SERVINGS 2 servings


 2 boneless chicken breasts
 4 tablespoons spreadable cream cheese
 1 clove garlic minced
 2 tablespoons jalapenos diced
 salt & pepper to taste
 1 ounce cheddar cheese
 4 slices bacon uncooked
 2 tablespoons southwest seasoning


        • Preheat oven to 190°C. Line a pan with foil.
        • In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic, jalapenos and salt & pepper.
        • Butterfly chicken breast (so you can open it like a book). Add ½ of the cream cheese mixture and ½ of the cheddar cheese to each chicken breast. Close the chicken breast wrapping around the cheese.
      • Wrap two slices of bacon around each chicken breast to seal it closed making sure the ends of the bacon are tucked under the chicken to hold it in place. Rub southwest seasoning over the bacon.
      • Bake on prepared pan for 35-40 minutes or until cooked through.
