Bacon Wrapped Chicken

In case you couldn't tell by the ingredients...these are absolutely fantastic. I hope to make some for the freezer now, too.
John's Rating: 9

10 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 pkg. cream cheese
1 large bunch of fresh chives, cut up
10 slices bacon

Mix cream cheese and chives.

Flatten chicken to 1/2" thickness.

Spoon cream cheese mixture into the center of each piece of chicken.

Wrap each with a bacon strip. Place the loose ends of bacon on the bottom, keep the sealed side of the chicken up to keep all the cheese in during baking.

Place on a greased pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 400F for 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked.

Broil 6 inches from the heat for 5 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Watch closely.

**If you are making these ahead for future use, freeze these uncooked on a cookie sheet in your freezer. When solid, wrap and put in a ziplock bag or vacuum seal desired quantities.

To cook from frozen state, thaw before cooking and follow directions above.
