Bacon-Wrapped Chicken

There is no need for an explanation for this recipe.  It is just absolutely yummy, especially for those bacon lovers!!
I have tried to make it a little more healthy, by decreasing the cream cheese and hubby wasn't very happy about it.  So, I  keep the recipe as is and we just don't eat it all that often.

6 boneless chicken breasts
8 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon onion powder (or more)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chives (or more)
6 bacon strips

Flatten chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thickness.  Soften up the cream cheese and mix in the butter, onion powder, salt and chives.  Place equal amounts of cream cheese mixture onto each chicken breast and roll up. Wrap with bacon.  Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Broil 6 inches from heat for 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon.  I often drain out the bacon grease and then turn the chicken over to crisp up the bottom side.
