Bacon-wrapped Boneless Chicken Breast recipe
How would you like to finally make a grilled boneless chicken breast recipe that's not dried out like Grandpa's old slipper?
While boneless chicken breast recipes are one of the most popular for the grill they're actually one of the hardest for people to cook just right.
Leave them on just a little too long and it's game over. Not even Rover's going to eat one.
The cream cheese keeps the breasts moist from the inside out while the bacon bastes the meat as it cooks.
Give this a try if you've been searching the internet trying to find how to cook a boneless breast recipe the painless way.
Prep time: 8 minutes
Direct Heat (to sear for 4 - 6 minutes):
Try not to cut all the way through with the knife or the innards will leak out.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the dried onion flakes into the pocket.
Wrap each stuffed breast with 2 strips of uncooked bacon.
If you need to you can secure the bacon with a toothpick, just remember to remove them before serving.
Rub each boneless breast with a little olive oil and sprinkle with crushed black pepper.
Set up one part of your grill for direct heat cooking and keep another area reserved for indirect cooking.
When the grills at cooking temperature range place the boneless chicken breast recipe on the grill over direct heat and close the lid.
After several minutes flip each breast over and leave for another 3 minutes to sear the bacon,
Leave the pieces for about 15 minutes and flip them once and leave for another 15 minutes.
When they've reached an internal temperature of 165F (in the meat, not the cream cheese) then remove each breast from the grill and cover with aluminum foil for about 5 minutes.
These are great served with a rice side dish.
