Bacon-Wrapped Chicken

Chicken with cheese, wrapped up in bacon! Yummo!

This deliciousness is excellent for those on a keto or low-carb diet but it is not great for those on a calorie-restricted diet. I found it when I was on phase three of the hCg diet. However, when I decided I needed to watch my calories, this meal became taboo. But since being on the ketogenic diet, I have revived this awesome recipe.

I see on my print recipe copy that I got it from this website. She has lots of ideas for other ‘fillings’ in this chicken that I may yet have to try.

Here’s what I did. I started with a generous one pound chicken breast and sliced it about half both horizontally and vertically to get individual portions.
