Bacon Wrapped Cheesy Chicken

Bacon and Chicken - how tasty does that sound!  Add a cream cheese, garlic salt and chopped onion mixture in the middle - and you have a definite YUM!  This recipe was so easy, looked great on the plate and tasted WONDERFUL!  Big Guy gave it two thumbs up!  Definite Keeper!
I paired it with Roasted Red and Sweet Potatoes and Fried Cabbage.
Adapted From Taste of Home

Bacon Wrapped Cheesy Chicken
Ingredients: (serves 6)
12 slices of Bacon  (I only used 6 as Big Guy had depleted my bacon supply ;))
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 oz each)
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 medium sweet onion, diced
2 tablespoons minced garlic
Dried dill, parsley, thyme to dash over top of wrapped chicken

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crispy.  You want to be able to still bend the bacon.  Remove from pan.

Flatten chicken breasts to 1/8 in thickness.  If you don't own a meat mallet, you can easily place chicken individually in ziploc bags and flatten with a small pan or pot.  A rolling pin will work as well.
Mix together cream cheese, garlic, onion.  Spread down the center of flattened chicken.  Roll up from the larger end, wrapping with bacon.  Place chicken ends down in 9X13 in pan.  Secure with toothpicks.

Season chicken with herbs.  Bake covered on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and cook another 5-10 minutes till juices run clear.
