The trick to holding these in place while cooking is toothpicks! If you roll them up and just leave as is they unroll when cooking and then you just end up cream cheese topped chicken and not stuffed chicken.
Another thing you will notice with this recipe is that the bacon is partly cooked. If you do not do use bacon that is partly cooked, you will end up with a more rubbery bacon when you bake it. It just has to be lightly cooked first in a pan or oven.

Spinach & Cream Cheese Keto Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe
- 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 6 oz cream cheese softened
- 8 oz fresh or frozen spinach if using frozen it needs to be thawed and patted dry
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 12 Slices Bacon partially cooked
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Partially cook the 12 slices of bacon, you don't want them crispy/done. You just need them cooked about halfway.
Use a meat tenderizer to flatten the chicken breasts and lightly salt & pepper them.
Mix the cream cheese, spinach, onion powder and garlic powder until mixed well.
Spread the mixture in the middle of each chicken breast and gently roll it up. Secure with 1-2 toothpicks.
Now wrap 2-3 bacon slices around the chicken breast and secure with toothpicks. I gently removed the previous toothpick and re-inserted to hold the bacon and chicken together.
Once the chicken breasts are stuffed and wrapped, place in a baking dish.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through.
