Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts recipe:
Bacon is Loaded With Fats… But They’re “Good” Fats
The fats in bacon are about 50% monounsaturated and a large part of those is oleic acid.
This is the same fatty acid that olive oil is praised for and generally considered “heart-healthy” (1).
Then about 40% is saturated fat, accompanied by a decent amount of cholesterol.But we now know that saturated fat isn’t harmful and cholesterol in the diet doesn’t affect cholesterol in the blood. Nothing to fear (2, 3).Depending on what the animal ate, about 10% are polyunsaturated fatty acids (mostly Omega-6). These are the “bad” fats in bacon, because most people already eat too much of them. However, if you choose bacon from pastured pigs that ate a natural diet, then this won’t be much of an issue. If your pigs are commercially fed, with plenty of soy and corn (like most pigs are), then the bacon may contain enough Omega-6 to cause problems. I personally wouldn’t worry about it much, especially if you’re already avoiding vegetable oils, which are the biggest sources of Omega-6 in the diet.
Here is what you will need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 ounces Cream cheese
1/4 cup green onions chopped
8 slices bacon; partially cooked
1 medium Jalapeno peppers; diced
