Bacon Wrapped Chicken and Microwave Cake

Facebook is full of recipes lately.  So today for my Tuesday recipe(s) I chose two of them.  Usually I choose recipes that I have used for years and I am familiar with.  Yesterday I made was a chicken recipe reposted by my husband.  I guess it looked good to him and he wanted me to try making it.  It doesn't appear to be very healthy but he said it was delicious.  I only ate a bite and it was pretty good.  I'm not a vegetarian, but I am not crazy about meat and eat very little.

Bacon Wrapped and Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts



1 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoon green onion, Chopped
2 pieces bacon, Partially Cooked

Directions:

Pound out Chicken breast so it is about 1/4" thick.

Mix together cream cheese and green onions ( I used cream cheese with onion and chives) and spread cheese mixture over one side of chicken breast.

Roll the Chicken breast up to conceal cream cheese.

Wrap partially cooked bacon around chicken breast and secure with toothpick.

Place on baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes at 375.

Broil for about 5 minute to crisp bacon if necessary.  Mine was brown enough after 30 minutes.  You can make one or as many as you choose.








This is a really ugly presentation with all the white food on a white plate.  I should have used a bright colored plate or added the vegetable before I took the photo.  Lots of butter and lots of bacon, oh dear.






The next Facebook recipe I made this week was the microwave cake.  Now usually these cakes in the microwave baked in a cup recipes, do not turn out.  This one is different.  It works beautifully.  I was very surprised.  All you do is mix one box of angel food cake and one box of a flavor.  I used devils food cake mix .

Two boxes of cake mix, dry from the box.
Mix in a gallon size plastic storage bag or another container.

Sometimes you just want a little sweet treat.  When you want a small piece of cake, just mix 3 Tablespoons of dry mix and 2 Tablespoons of water in a coffee cup.  Stir it up and put it into the microwave on high for 1 minute.  Take it out of the microwave and let it rest and cool for about 15 minutes.  Turn over on a plate.  Eat is plain, put some canned frosting on it or a dollop of whipped topping.  It really works and you don't have a whole cake to eat.
