24 ozcans whole green chilesdrained and each chile sliced in half
8ozblock of cream cheesesliced into 8 equal pieces
2/3cupshredded cheddar cheese
8slicesthick cut bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil and top with a wire baking rack. Set aside.
Slice chicken breasts thinly in half to create two thin breasts. You will have 8 total after slicing. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts evenly with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Top each chicken breast with half of a green chile, a slice of cream cheese (about 1 oz), and evenly sprinkle with the shredded cheddar cheese. Roll each chicken breast into a bundle, wrap with a piece of bacon, and secure with a toothpick.
Place the bacon wrapped chicken bundles on top of the rack on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Turn on the oven broiler and place chicken on the top rack of the oven closest to the broiler. Allow the chicken to broil for about 3-5 minutes, until bacon is crispy. Enjoy!
