I wanted to so much like this dish. I had made a similar dish but couldn't recall the recipe so I looked for something online and found this. Love cream cheese, bacon and chicken - how could I go wrong, right? Ugh. Preparation was simple. I added a little more garlic based on some of the reviews. Popped it in the oven and prepared all my side dishes. 30 minutes later, I cut into a piece to make sure it was finished because 30 mins on 350 did not seem like enough time to me but what do I know. My dad took a bite and spit it out. It wasn't done. Back in the oven for another 15 minutes. So let's start by saying if you're getting breasts to butterfly, pound them first because this is not nearly enough time in the oven to cook thoroughly. The bacon was another issue - parts of it was done, parts were not. Yuck. I'd suggest starting with partially cooked bacon or putting it in the broiler to finish it off. Even after another 15 mins in the oven, my dad couldn't eat it - I guess the thought of the uncooked chicken just wouldn't get out of his head. I picked the bacon off mine and it was just not great. I think the review of putting breadcrumbs on it is right on! It was such a disappointment and to add to the fact that it was dinner for my parent's anniversary just added insult to injury. The dish has a lot of potential but too much wrong with it as is.
