How to setup the Big Green Egg for Bacon & Cream Cheese Wrapped Chicken?
Start out by firing up the Big Green Egg. Get the BGE dialed into 400 degrees which will need to be setup as an indirect cook (feet down on the plate setter).
How to Prepare Bacon Wrapped Chicken?
Start out by cutting any fat off of the chicken breast.
Put a decent amount of Shakin’ The Tree spice by Dizzy Pig on the Chicken Breast.
Layer the top of the Chicken Breast with a good coating of Cream Cheese.
Start out by cutting bacon and leaving about 1/2 – 1 inch on either side of the chicken.
Simply tuck the bacon under the chicken and repeat the process on the other breast.
For this part, I didn’t feel like cleaning a cast iron pan so I just put it on some tin foil and set it on my drip tray.
Sprinkle a little more of the Shakin’ the Tree seasoning on top of the bacon.
How to Cook the Bacon Wrapped Chicken on the Big Green Egg
By now you should have the Big Green Egg Dialed in anywhere between 275 & 400 degrees.
Set the chicken on the grate and probe the bacon wrapped chicken.
The plate setter should be feed down, grate on top and then the pan or cast iron skillet.
Let the chicken cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. This is the minimum you’ll want to cook any chicken. However, the bacon still isn’t quite done.
Set the oven to broil. Pull the chicken from the BGE and place it in the oven for 3 – 5 minutes until the bacon gets a good crispy doneness to it.
