what you'll need
  

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 1 bunch green onion split
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • salt and black pepper to taste

let's do it
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a skillet, partially cook bacon until it just starts to curl, but isn't yet crispy. You will be wrapping it around the chicken, so you want it to be flexible and it will crisp in the oven.

  • Chop up the green onion into bite-size pieces.
  • In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, about 3/4 of the green onion (save some for garnish), and garlic powder. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • On a cutting board, cover the chicken with a piece of plastic wrap. Use the flat side of a meat tenderizer to flatten to about 1/4" thick. Season both sides of the chicken breast with salt and pepper.
