Wrapped Garlic Chicken with Cream Cheese Freezer Recipe
4 oz. cream cheese
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1/8 tsp black pepper
12 chicken strips (chicken breast cut into strips)
1 package bacon
1 tbsp butter or margarine
In a bowl, combine
cream cheese, garlic, basil and pepper. Set aside.
On a cooking sheet,
place a piece of wax paper, then place six chicken strips
on it. Top each piece with an even amount of the cream cheese
mixture, then top with another chicken strip. Carefully wrap
strips of bacon around each piece... you can use either one
or two pieces, depending if you are watching your calories!
Flash freeze in
the freezer. As soon as they are frozen, store in a ziploc
freezer bag. If you will be leaving them in the freezer for
more than a few weeks, wrap each individually in freezer wrap
before placing in freezer bag.
On cooking day,
thaw in refrigerator. In a large skillet, melt 1 tbsp butter
or margarine, then add chicken. Cook for three minutes on
medium then using tongs flip each piece over. Reduce heat
to low, cover skillet and cook for 8 minutes or until the
chicken is no longer pink. Serve.
