Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 small chicken breasts or 2 large chicken breasts, sliced in half to make 4 pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 170 grams cream cheese cold, refrigerated, and sliced into 8 slices
  • 8 strips bacon cooked, chopped
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C.
  • Grease the bottom of the casserole dish with olive oil. The dish should measured approximately 33cm x 22cm x 10cm deep.
  • Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish and season with salt & pepper.
  • Top with cream cheese. Cream cheese should be cold, right out of the fridge, sliced into 8 thin slices.
  • Top with chopped cooked bacon.
  • Top with shredded Cheddar cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, for about 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breasts.

Notes

You can always use 4 - 8 chicken thighs, depending on their size.  I find chicken thighs don't tend to dry out as much as breast meat because they are slightly fatter.
