Low Fat Bacon Wrapped Chicken (with Proscuitti!)

Many of you have probably tried my Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast. Unfortunately, it has saturated fat, and after a high cholesterol diagnosis for my dear husband, we had to cut back on the stuff.  So, I created a Lower Fat version.


Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
Fat Free Cream Cheese
Garlic, minced
Basil (dried)
Sliced Proscuitti

Soften cream cheese, and mix with 1tbsp minced garlic and 2 tsp dried basil. Cut chicken into tenders, spreading the cream cheese mixture over one tender and topping with another (like a sandwich).  Then, wrap in proscuitti.  Freeze on a cookie sheet, then transfer to freezer bag.

To serve:  Thaw, place in a baking dish, and bake covered for 45 minutes at 250 (or until chicken is cooked through).


  1. We love the Bacon Wrapped chicken, but I have to agree - not the healthiest dish. Thanks for a lower fat option. Another option to consider would be turkey bacon.

  2. Thanks Penny! We tried turkey bacon first...I really don't like it! I think its good crumbled up in dishes, but I don't like it in its complete form. But if you do, that works!
