NY Resolution Recipe #15: Cream Cheese Stuffed and Wrapped Chicken Breasts

Apparently, it has been awhile since I've written one of these posts up! EEK!
It's already Canada Day and I am seriously slacking!

So I apologize now in advance for all of the recipe posts that will be coming up - and I'll put the autism-related stuff on the back burner for a bit so I can truly update this blog!

So this comes off as a fancy-pants meat dish but really, it's not that hard, doesn't require that much and is not terribly time consuming to do.

What you need:
  • Chicken breasts for the total amount of people you're serving - RINSED.
  • Prosciutto or similar air-dried ham - or bacon (it'll be greasier) - 1/chicken breast
  • Black Forest ham slices - 1/chicken breast
  • Flavoured cream cheese - I used smoked reindeer - but herb & garlic would be lovely as well!
  • Pepper
  • Baking Paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Toothpicks
  • Small sharp knife
What to do:
  1. Turn your oven to 200*C (400*F) while you prep the chicken.
  2. Cut open chicken (see photo of V-Man helping me out!).
  3. Make a cut length-wise into the meat - but don't cut all the way through.
  4. Spoon flavoured cream cheese into the "pocket" you made in the meat.
  5. Wrap breast with a slice of ham and again with a slice of prosciutto/air-dried ham.
  6. Insert a tooth pick and place on baking paper.
  7. Repeat until all the chicken breasts are done.
  8. Cook in oven for 25-35 minutes, until meat is cooked all the way through.  (Time may vary depending on your oven and thickness of meat.) 

Serve with rice, salad, potatoes or on a warm and toasty bun as a sandwich!
*Be sure to remove the toothpick - or else it will hurt.*

Enjoy! :)
