Yesterday no newsletter was posted online.  The suddenlink email address inbox was hung and I had to call Suddenlink to fix the problem. It took until late this evening (Friday) to correct the proboem. Several emails had to be deleted to get the box functional again.  If your email was not posted today please send it again so I can post your message or recipe online. By the time the box was fixed I was too tired to post the newsletter online.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts Recipe

1 bunch green onions, about 10
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened, 8 oz
8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
16 to 24 slices bacon

Clean, trim and chop green onions. Mix onions into cream cheese and set aside.

Butterfly chicken breasts from thinnest edge in toward the thickest. This thickest edge will be the middle of the breast once it is opened up. Working one piece at a time, open the breast up and put it in a heavy zipper lock bag. Seal the bag and with a rolling pin pound the chicken breast until it is 1/4 inch thick all over. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.

Once all 8 breasts are flattened, put an equal amount of the cream cheese mixture on each. Wrap chicken meat around cheese mix so that it is completely enclosed.

Wrap a strip of bacon around the ball of chicken, stretching it a bit to provide maximum overlap. Then wrap a second piece of bacon around the still exposed part of the chicken, again, giving it a bit of a stretch. Secure with a few toothpicks. Depending on the size of the chicken breasts, you may need a third piece of bacon. Most of the chicken should be covered with the bacon strips.

Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Cover barbecue rack with sheet of foil and spray it with cooking spray. The foil helps prevent flare ups from bacon fat and also helps the chicken cook evenly. Preheat grill to high.

Put chicken on covered rack, reduce heat to medium and close the lid. Turn about every 5 minutes until all sides are nicely browned. When cheese starts to ooze out in a few places, they’re done. Depending on the size of the pieces and the overall temperature of your barbecue, this should take 20 to 30 minutes. Remove toothpicks and serve. serves 8, each with 1 gram of carbs, a trace of fiber and 36 grams of protein.
